there are brownish stains on most of the clothes, looks like it's coming from the agitator? Is there a seal that can be replaced on this and is there a manual or bulletin, etc. that explains how to replace it? Any suggestions, thank you...

Pull the agitator and have a look. May need to replace the "magic filter" ==> http://appliantology...t-drive-washer/

And don't neglect to check out the dryer. Many clothes staining problems actually originate in the dryer from worn drum rollers, worn drum felt seals...

Pulled the agitator and whew! There was grease leaking out of top of spin tube - looks like a worn seal at the top of the spin tube. Replaced the spin tube.
