Black Marks on Clothes Coming out of the Dryer

I saw a post from drsdrs on July 6, 2007 that described my problem to a tee. "We find small black marks on the laundry at the completion of the drying cycle. The black marks can be removed with soap and water." However the answer to drdrs did not help me as my dryer has done this since the first time we used it brand new and it is only a year old now. If the drum rollers are bad then they were bad when the machine was sold to me. Could there be another solution?

    My LG dryer also leaves black marks on clothes. I have had it repaired two times (drum and rollers replaced), but the problem is back. Just spoke with customer service at LG and was told that an appliance has to be repaired three times w/o success before they will exchange it for a new one.

Follow-up the Nov 28 post: Just got my replacement dryer after many phone calls to LG. The installer told me that the black marks were from using dryer sheets. He said the ozone system in the dryer breaks down the chemicals in the dryer sheets. Doesn't explain why the problem seems to be fixed when roller and drum is replaced then returns after about 2-3 months.

This is symptomatic of a water control valve not closing completely- its no power/fail position is closed.

I am going to change-out a laundry tub in my basement which is not vented. The branch arm associated with the drain appears to be 5+/- feet off the main soil stack. Should I use a cheater vent for the...

If you cannot vent it properly, the cheater vent will work fine. Cut in a tee wye (TY) withing that 5 feet and aim up. Cut a piece of pipe so it is at least 6 inches above the flood level rim of the washer, attach a female adapter and screw in the pro vent (cheater vent). Good luck.

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.

Black stains on Laundry from a front load washer.

bob, if your model starts with 417. this is a mother of all jobs. The black marks are coming from the rear bearing assy. in the tub. I just changed one out and it is misery. I don't believe the boot is causing the black marks. When I tore this one apart I found the tub, tub to drain pump hose, pump itself, contaminated with this black crap. Replaced them all. The tub and bearing comes as one piece and it is no fun to put in. The whole washer has to come apart to do this job and it requires two men to do it. The boot (bellow)itself is a pain to install. You might want to check with Sears and see if this is covered under the 5 year warrany on the bearing and tub, parts only, if not, it's not worth the time or back.
