Question about Washing Machines
Welcome to fixya,
How old is the front load washer?
Front load washers have this problem no matter what brand or how much you paid for them, IF you are putting to much detergent in them.
The front loaders call for HE (High Efficent) detergent which is concentrated and needs less.
Or especially any liquid detergent not HE you must use use less.
To much causes the seal and bearing to wear out prematurely,
And or the front seal of the door to deteriorate into the water which can cause these stains on your clothes!!
Under these circumstance's they will go in about 5 years!
The only other time I saw colored streaks was when a guy left a pen in his pocket and that was for only one wash!
How old is the washer and did you buy it new?
I'm sorry I could not be the bearer of better news!
God bless You! Huuum

Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old washer
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
