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.

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.

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 oil or grease on clothes after washing

is you machine a top loader or front loader? if its a front loader the black marks could be from the boot. WIpe the boot with a good cleaner. and try not to over load machine. and if it a top loader your transmission is probably leaking oil back into clothes tub. You could have it rebuilt $$$ or better replace the machine.

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.
