I have had an ongoing issue with oily appearing stains on clothing. I assume from the dryer since air dried clothes do not have stains.
I have replaces drum felt front and back, drum glides, door gasket, drum rollers, and cleaned drum baffles, Yet staining continues. Any suggestions to track down the cause and solve this?

Dryer sheets

Thanks for the reply. I do not use dryer sheets. I have been using Seventh Generation detergent.

They could be there from the washer, the dryer heat makes them stand out more than air drying. Ammonia works great on oil stains.
