Question about Washing Machines
I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.

Its the felt drum seal (clothes getting stuck in there and getting the greasy adhesive on them). I took a Q-tip and slid it between the felt seal and the metal, and the color and consistency of what came out was the same as the marks on the clothes.
