Washer works fine but leaves brown deposits on clothes

Frigidaire Electrolux model GLTF1670ASO Front-loader, Hi-efficiency.Answer
Suspect oil or grease seal on main bearing. Does it have a grease or oil lubricated bearing with a seal that can leak into tub? I called a parts store, and was told the bearing is sold as 1 unit with the entire back shelf; i.e. the bearing/seal isn't replaceable. I found a broken shock-strut and will replace it today after purchase.

There isn’t any grease to speak of in this machine. I would look at the front rubber boot that seals the front door. Rub you hand around the front boot and see if you get any of the brown stuff off the boot.

I can’t imagine the bearing leaking grease into the tub but it could be.
