Can you show us a photo with this issue? (Please make sure the EXIF data is intact.)
Does it show up green on the camera LCD or the computer screen? I have seen issues where the LCD has a color cast even when the images are fine on the computer.

Did the Rebel XS ever make jpgs the way you think it should? At least as good as you phone? You did the reset? You got a brand new memory card? You formatted it with the XS?
If, yes, to these, than the camera needs service. And I am afraid if it indeed does, as I now suspect, it will likely cost more than the camera is worth.
Two points I may have picked up on, one is, RAW is not for everybody. I believe it is the way to go but I understand not everbody wants or needs the extra quality or steps involved. And second, if you are/were happy with cell phone pictures, possibily you should just use it. That isn't bad, it is just they way it is. As, their needs are not the same as folks with DSLR's.
Lastly, if you are just using the camera's LCD screen, that is not very good idea. I know you don't want to involve more steps but in this situation you must. You must confirm the 'greenish' whites are truly 'greenish'. You can not do that with just the camera. It may be that the LCD is the faulty component.

I guess we'll need a firmware update then, to add "LED" to e menu of canned white balance settings?
Maybe not. My impression is that LEDs are much closer to having a sensible color temperature than fluorescents (including CFs) are. In my office at work I have a CF desk lamp and a pole lamp with three 8W(!) LED spotlights. To my eyes, the LEDs are a fair approximation of 60W tungstens, while the light from the desk lamp looks greenish. I don't recall having a chance to do a photo shoot in LED light, but I'd be surprised if it isn't more tractable than any form of fluorescent light.
Absolutely. But LEDs can come in all kinds of color. I've shot a fair amount of architectural work where they use daylight colored LEDs, and it balances quite well with flash. Haven't had any issue with it at all. In living areas they usually use a warmer version, which is closer to tungsten, but not as orange. I rather like it, and it balances with other light better than tungsten. Whatever color it is, so long as it's not fluorescent and doesn't vary as much as they do, I'll be happy.
