I washed a part that should not be washed in the washing machine. Now the metal part is no longer shiny and gives off an oily substance. How dangerous can this be? In terms of toxins and to the other things in the dishwasher? I did a quick wash without soap after I found out.
Edit: Awaiting answer from tech support, they might have to ask the factory. I think its strange that the inside of the cog is covered in oil, if its from the part above. There is no visible oil on anything else, even on the plastic or the blades. I think it may be a coating on the cog, reacting to water and soap, may be completely wrong here.
