Brown streaks left on clothes

I have a front loading whirlpool dryer. I occassionally have a 1 inch long brown streak left on clothes. It almost seems like a burn mark. It is always a perfectly straight narrow line. What is causing this?

    My clothes also get marks on them. I always thought it was from the washer. They are permanent marks. It has ruined all my clothes.

Not having seen this before, but my best guess would be that the piece of clothes is caught in one position and rubbing on the gasket material around the rear of the drum. Is the mark permanent?

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Usually, if you are getting brown streaks or marks on clothing, one or both of the drum seals are going bad. Clothing will drag between the bulkhead and the drum, leaving brown marks. If you want to do the repair yourself, I can provide instructions, otherwise call for service.

Brown streak on clothes


Hi,

It could be from scorching due to getting too hot. This may be the start of a problem for you.

It is best to judge how long clothes need drying for before drying them. If they are left too long, sometimes the heat builds up.

Try a smaller load in there, and if you can reduce the temperature any then do.

Often it's just overloading is the issue.

Hope this is a solution for you, If so, Please rate as Fixya! Thanks.
