    Default Tub seal?

    Frigidaire Washer
    Model - FWs1233Fs1

    Mfg Date - 07/07

    Operates good. Complaint , leak.

    Fixed leaky pump.

    Washed a dark ring off the tub thinking/ hoping it was softener and or body fluids, occupation related, etc.

    Noticed the bottom looked a little greasy. Tranny did not have any signs of leakage,,,,except on th etop of the big drive pulley, I could wipe it right at the shaft and get a little oil on my finger.

    Should I be worried it might get oil on clothes that are washed in it? I feel there are many out there being used that are not causing problems.

    I should say the top of the pulley did not actually have any signs of oil, just right at the shaft.

    While it is possible, it is rare to have a Frigidaire tranny leak oil inside the washer.....most leak onto the base and floor

    Washed a dark ring off the tub thinking/ hoping it was softener and or body fluids, occupation related, etc.
    That ring usually is oil from or skin, it is lighter and floats on top of the water leaving the ring.

    "Oil from skin" sounds much better than "body fluids"!
    They don't come off real easy either way.
    I think it is okay. Very nice runninh machine.
    Thanks

    Nope...I usually use an SOS pad.
