SOURCE: Brown spotting on washed clothes
chances are if you have eliminated anything thats got in by accident that the drum bearings are about to go, the drum bearings are protected by a water seal, this has started to leak and is now washing the grease out of the bearings back into the wash, you may also find a small amount of water on the floor, if you also remove the back and look behind the large pulley you may also see brown water marks running from the center of the outer drum
the next step will be a very noisy spin, like a rumbling noise
DRUM BEARINGS sorry

SOURCE: brown streaks on clothes
Are the streaks on smaller pieces of clothing (socks, etc.)? If so, the clothing item might be getting caught inside the rubber gasket around the door, and getting the streak from there. Try cleaning inside the fold of the rubber gasket very well, and often and see if it keeps happening.

more than likly it is coming from the dryer. get a paper towel or a towel and run it between the inside of the drum and the front where they come together. stick it through the slot and run around the drum. do the front then do the back see if you see the same streaks. and let me know thanks

fill the tub with only water! use pinesol and bleach! half a gallon of each run through wash cycle 3 times before ever letting it spin out! then complete all cycles that should do it! if not them you need to remove and clean under tub and re install

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.
