Does the temeperature appear to higher than usual?
Does the dum spin correctly (smoothly and at a constant speed)?

I am thinking that the rubber belt that spins the drum may be getting hot somehow and melting bits in the dryer holes of the drum.

Is the drum stainless steel or painted?

There are generally no other components that can come in contact with the contents of the clothing.

The only last thing I can think of is whether a piece of dark clothing (i.e a sock) has queezed behind the drum and moisture is picking up the colour.

Why do copies in color have multicolored streaks while black & white are fine?


There is a good chance that your color ink cartridge needs replacement. You can tray wetting a paper towel and putting in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds then placing the cartridge on it for a few minutes. This sometimes will correct that type of problem...Be careful the paper towel will be hot (handle with care).

Brown spots and streaks on clothes


Try a few test items, to make sure the streaks are not coming from your washer, rather than the dryer (a white cotton towel is probably the best, if you have one to spare, but try items similar to the problem ones). You could try taking an already marked item if it is ruined, circle all the existing marks with permanent marker, then use that. If definitely the dryer (try the washer test a couple of times) have a really good look inside the dryer at everything, check there is nothing that looks rusty - occasionally there can be a bad screw, bolt or part of the drum. If you see something, send us back a photo and we can talk you through what to do. If you are sure there is nothing visible, then first make absolutely sure everything you can get to is spotlessly clean. Get the vacuum cleaner in there everywhere you can from the front access door. Then pull the dryer out from it's position and check there is nothing nasty growing behind or under it that could be getting sucked in. Ensure the air intake is clear and clean. Check this link for info on how to clean your outlet duct - unusual, but sometimes mould or rodent activity can influence items in the dryer; http://www.doityourself.com/stry/stainindryer Check this link - there are many good posts describing ways of cleaning out different items from a dryer (try them if you think any could possibly be the problem); http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf690227.tip.html If you still get the same problem, then there will need to be some dismantling of the machine - probably not too complicated for someone who has basic tools and mechanical skills - is the dryer still under warranty? Please ask again if you have no result from the above, and we can try and talk you through it. Hope this helps :)

Loud grinding noises and black streaks on clothes


Your drum rollers may be going bad (grinding noise) which will sometimes cause the drum to drop slightly, creating a gap where the clothes get caught as the drum rotates. (black streaks)

Smeg large oven, takes a lifetime to pre heat, I have changed the seal on the door but it hasn't made a difference, any suggestions?


Don't know 'bout yours but have you tried the old tea towel in the corners trick to see if its the hinge alignment and not the seal? Put two tea towels in the lower corners sticking out of the oven part way and push the oven door closed a few times. Saved me from trying to replace the seal on my Miele.

2002 Kenmore front load washer 42042 is leaving large black smudges 3-4 square inches each and streaks, and dot patterned stuff of the same on my clothes. This unit is stacked . Is it repairable for...


Two possibilities come to mind. Too much fabric softener, or
the black rubber door seal. Try rubbing the seal with a paper
towel to see it it smudges. Try cleaning with bleach or alcohol,
then rinse it thoroughly with water.

White clothes have black streaks after drying.


You will have to have the dryer drum felts replaced. It requires removing the drum from the dryer so you may want to have a technician do this because removing the belt can be tricky.

Towels smell burnt after washing.


Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..
Thanks

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.

Dryer leaving brown streaks on clothes


the brown streaks and holes will be when they get stuck the dryer is still turning and it will be friction marks if it is getting stuck between the inner and outer drums than check to see if there is any wobble in the inner drum by opening the door and placing your hand at the top of the outer rim of the panel and place your fingers to the top of the inner drum pull your fingers towards your hand if there is any movement than the bearings are gone which will need replacing once done then this will eliminate the problem if there is no movement check to see if there is a seal missing from between the inner and outer drum u can find this out by checking with your fingers than calling the manufacturer to see if there is supposed to be one there
