When my wife washes my t-shirts they come out with stains on them. The stain looks like a light kind of round oil stain. We can't figure out where these stains are coming from. They are on my white and colored t-shirts. All of them go in clean and come out stained. We even got a new washing machine.

Since you have a new washing machine, it might still be under warranty. Call the store where you bought it and explain the problem that you're having. They just might send someone over to take a look at it and fix the problem.
Maybe it's something in the dryer. Try checking it every time before you throw the clothes in. I say this because I had a tiny puddle that appeared in the bottom of the drum during humid weather. I noticed it before anything happened but would have had mystery stains, too, if I hadn't accidentally seen it.
I stopped having this problem when I stopped using dryer sheets. Not sure if it a coincidence.
It's your drier sheets :( Boohoo! Idk if you know, drier sheets are full of nasty toxins. Use white vinegar in your final rinse. The smell will be gone when the clothes are dry and will still smell good, like your soap. Way cheaper! I rarely use products from the store, the Internet is full of much safer diy 'recipes' that you'll be pleasantly suprised work As well or better, and cost substantially less :)
How do you get the dryer sheet stains out?
I do not use dryer sheets and I still have oil stains
Easy fix - same problem with all LG machines. Replace the drain pump! Take it apart and youll see the gaskets on it failed
Same here. No drier sheets, but still have these stains. Anyone know why?

I just bought a new washer and some of my clothes come out with what looks like discoloration or grease spots all over them. Not everything, just 2 or 3 things. Has anyone had any kind of problem like this?
I was wondering what causes grease like stains on our clothes.
I keep getting 'grease' marks on freshly laundered clothes. The stains aren't there when I put the clothes in.
I would like to know how to remove black grease stains from my white clothing. It appears after I have washed them.
All my whites are coming out with dingy brown spots. Looks somewhat like oil spots.
I have a Maytag Neptune front-loading washer that is about 4 years old. In the past 2 years, I've noticed greasy/oily looking spots on some of the darker colored clothes coming out. Anyone else have the same problem?
At first I thought that it was our washing machine that caused the little "grease" spots on my shirts.
