Related to the grease spots question above. I recently started getting dark grey streaks (thin... maybe 1/16" wide and roughly 1" long) on newly washed cloths. They almost look like someone took a pencil and drew a little curved swash on it. One shirt had nearly a dozen spots. But here's the thing, I don't use fabric softener, never have. I have a water softener so I never saw the need. After reading your answer for grease spots I took the agitator completely apart looking for build up of some other sort and given the fact that the washer is over 22 years old it was remarkably clean. The retaining clip and washer on top of the shaft was a different story though. There was a thick dark grease around it but not what I would concider an excessive amount. Was this intentionally done during the assembly process or has it leaked somehow? And could this be the cause of my dark streaks? Thank you for the help.

ANSWER Mark, The issue isn't in the washer It's the dryer. The clothes are getting stuck in the gap between the tumbler and the bulkhead. You'll want to check for worn front drum glides and rear drum rollers, and make sure you're not overloading the dryer(1/2 full drum maximum). The "grease" you observed, is a combination of residual lubricants from the production line, and a combination of detergent, body ooils and soil from the washing process, Nothing to be of concern, at this point.
