    I Need Help

    I don't know if it is my washer or dryer, but my clothes are coming out of the dryer with grease stains on them. I pulled a white T-shirt out and it had yellow staing all over it. Would someone please tell me what I need to look for.

    Probably a yellow crayon from one of your kids. Buy a new dryer, they are cheap. If not break out the wd-40 on the grease. Then dish detergent to use as soap. It loosens the surface tension of the grease, wax, parrifin or what ever you call it. But some new shirts also. That one had "ring around the collar" and was dingy. Guys clothes are cheap too. Just the basics.

    Ummm did the clothes go in with stains? How do you know thats a grease stain? might want to change stain remover brand if so.

    suggestion:
    Inspect the dryer with a flash light for stains/ marks
    Inspect the washer for stains/residue.

    Put your washer through a cycle with some detergent and bleach - no clothes

    Graffetti remover is the only product I found that took Ball point pen ink of a plastic dryer drum.

    Afterwards put some clothes through - reduce the amount of detergent you use - use about 1/3 to 1/2 what he manufs say to use (unless you have hard water- then use 2/3 to 3/4) use a warm/warm cycle this time

    Hmm

    May be grease out of the gear box coming up thru the base of the tub around the shaft. May have a bad seal. Just a guess!
