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.

When I do a wash my dark clothes have white streaks after drying. What do I do?


find the crayon or chalk in the machine. To isolate the issue, line dry some clothes and see if they come out ok.

White streaks left on clothes


1.Have you used too much detergent and it hasn't all rinsed out...was the machine overloaded and the rinse cycle can't penetrate the MASS of wet fabric.
2. If you are in a hard water area, could there be limescale build-up/ mineral deposits within your inlet pipes/hoses.
3. Did you use a biological powder instead of a colour or non-bio detergent and these marks are now actually 'bleached' dye lines.

Im gettin 1/2 inch to 2 inch rust like streaks on my light clothing after drying. I took a wet white cloth and wiped them along the felt seals at the front and back of the dryer and got the same staining....


You are absolutely correct. Replacing the felt seals will definitely solve the problem and you have to look forward to replacing the same in another 4 years. The seals are sold as pair as you need to replace both but they are cheap and easy to replace. The only hard part is getting to the seals as you need to get the top and the front panels then the drum itself to get to the rear seal.

Rust colored mark or short line on tee shirts


most likely coming from your washer....when clothes are wet it harder to see marks....washer needs new seals.

Getting a black strip in copy mode on X6575 lexmark printer. No line in print or test mode


Most likely a page was scanned with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

I get black streaks like the rest of you.. I


it's not the drum,it's the felt pieces that the drum rides on, there is felt on the back of drum and theres a felt piece on the front bulkhead, they could be worn leaving a space letting the clothing slip through hitting the black rollers or something is falling through the space hitting the clothes next time send the model number so i can look up your dryer,the model number is around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer,open the door and look around the opening and you'll see a tag with model and serial number

There are streaks (lint?) left on clothes after


It is not on the machine, it is on the detergent that you are using and the amount of water for per grams of detergent, maybe you are putting to much detergent, try to lessen the detergent and more water instead.

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.
