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?

Re: Black Marks on Clothes Coming out of the Dryer

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.

Dryer drys great. is leaving black marks on clothes

Are the black marks a result of an ink stain in the drum or is the black marks coming for the dryer seal?

If they are coming from an ink stain then alcohol or hair spray with paper towels will normally get them off the drum.

If the black marks are coming from the seal, that means that the seal is not positioned correctly and would require that the dryer be disassebled and a new seal be installed.

Dryer leaving small black marks on light colored clothes

Disassemble and look for lint issues, your description could be caused by burnt lint coming off of the burner.

Makes a noise like there is loose change in the dryer. Grey marks are coming off onto the clothes. checked. there is nothing inside the dryer or in the pockets of the clothes. Still happens- even with...

This sounds like a faulty drum bearing. The grey marks you are seeing are grease from the bearing. The loose change sound is from the remnants of the bearing rotating as the drum turns.

I have a Maytag Neptune gas dryer and recently light colored clothes are coming out with small black marks on them; it looks like grease/oil stains. Where could this be coming from?

my first guess would be something ,someone placed in dryer perhaps coveralls or oily clothing.There is no place that I am aware of on a dryer where you could pick up oil leaks from ..are you sure you did not have a lint fire,the oil stains may be soot

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)

Black marks on clothes

Your going to have to get service for this one. Chances are the rollers are gone and the black is coming from the rubber onto the felt and then transfering to your clothes.

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.
