Amana Washing Machine

Washing machine leaking oil inside the tub; oil seems to have leaked out of the agitator

The first thing to do is make sure this is really oil leaking.

Frequently, there is a fabric softener buildup in the drum and it can look like oil on the clothes. If you use a pre-stain treatment and wash the clothes again, the stains will come out. If this is what happens, then the fabric softener is the problem.

If the residue really is oil, then the problem is most likely a leaking transmission. This is a complicated repair and can be quite costly. You might want to weigh the option of purchasing a new washing machine.
