My GE washer is leaving brown spots on my clothing, ruining my clothes. The cleaners were not even able to remove the spots. Why?

Model #vs1060A1WW

I do not have a fabric softener or bleach dispenser.

Last load of clothes that were washed in the washer were COVERED with these brown spots. It seems to absorb and attach itself to some material more that others. When I removed the clothes from the washer (it was a very small load), there was a dime sized "blob" (brownish in color) in the bottom of my washer. It was greasy to the touch.

I REALLY do not want to have to buy a new washer, so I hope this is fixable!!

Thank you!

Thank you for choosing Manage My Life. I can totally understand your concern. Don't worry, we are here to help. First, you will have to determine what is leaking and where it is leaking from. The brown spots could be a mixture of rust and oil. The washer has a stainless steel spin basket. It is unlikely that the washer itself will leave a rust spot on clothing. You can check carefully inside the spin basket of the washer. Wipe the entire inside of the washer basket with a damp, white wash cloth to see if you detect any rust. The wash plate or the top tub ring could be rubbing on the spin basket abnormally to cause residue that would stain the clothes. If this does not work, you may have a problem with the gearcase parts of the washer. I hope this information helps you today.

That is what I was afraid of.....having to replace the machine! But it will be cheaper that replacing an entire house worth of clothing! Ha!
Thanks for your input.
