    my dryer is only 2 1/2 years old and is doing the same, only noticed on light coloured clothing. I noticed black "goo" around the felt seal at the front of the drum. After reading some stuff on the internet I wonder if it's a treansmission seal leak. Going to check into this and find out cost of repair or can I do it myself?

Folks,
Yes, you can use white vinegar to clean the dryer surfaces inside.. and the goo you see may be some of the gasket cement that secures the felt seal to the drum and s breaking free. I suggest you do a thorough examination around the entiore drum circumference for any traces of this material and clean it off with a single edge razor and solvent such as alcohol or mineral spirits. Be sure to allow ample time for the residue from those solvents to dissipate Before cycling clothes in that dryer. I hpe this helps you. Please post yopur replies if these suggestions did not solve your problems and we can take a closer look.
Regards,
Rick

Excessive lint on or near the heater coils will send smoldering lint onto the clothes. Use a flash light and go inside the drum to see the heating coils or lifting the top up who should be able to see the lint build-up on the coils. These need to be cleaned.

The dryer is squealing and leaving burn marks on the clothes


Squeak is caused by a worn out roller rolling metal to metal - Most dryers have rollers, felts and drum slides to balance drum rotation:
When rollers wear off, black powder leaks to rear felts and black marks are left on clothes.
Same thing happens when drum slides wear off (black marks are left on clothes)

Brown marks on the clothes


Yes, the felts are what seals the unit and allows the drum to turn without much heat loss. The felt can become damaged and the clothes will get caught between the drum and the housing leaving these marks.

those "burn" marks if they have an arking shape to them are smudges from the felt that goes on the drum support above and bellow the door inside the drier. the felts wear out every five to seven years or so. easy repair. send me a model number and i could go into more detail. part numbers ect.

Black marks on clothing at completion of drying cycle


Is the residue coming from the back or front of the drum? Most dryers are equipped with 2 drum roller supports in the rear under the drum. You may have a drum roller that is going bad and some of the rubber residue is getting past the drum seal. Some dryers are quipped with an additional pair of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. I would check all the drum rollers to see if they are all in good shape. A definite symptom of a bad drum roller is finding black residue along the outside of the drum where the rollers ride. You will have to open the dryer cabinet to see the outside of the drum. Also, check the rear drum seal to make sure it is not crimped or folded inwards in the drum. The felt seal in the back should should ride evenly all the way around the drum and should not be that visible inside the drum itself. That is, you may see some of the seal, but you shouldn't see part of it folded inside the drum or bits of it tattered or torn. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if this helps.
