The first thing you want to do is run a cycle with no clothes inside using a product called "Washer Magic" which you can pick up at Lowes or order online. That will clean out any build up or residue in your washer. Run the washer again and if you still get pink splotches, either your main bearing and seal is leaking the red transmission grease onto your clothing or something you're putting in the washer is getting on the clothing. If you need a new bearing an seal, that costs about $500 to have replaced.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
