Dryer putting black smears on clothes

I have a GE Profile Dryer that isonly a few years old. My clothes are coming out of it with black smudges on them. There is a plastic piece inside the drum on the front that looks like it has become brittle and is cracking. Do I need to order just the plastic piece for the inside of the drum or is there something else causing the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Dryer putting black smears on clothes

The white plastic pieces just inside the font of the drum are the front bearings there are aboutfour of these, you will need to take the front of the machine to put them in, your clothes are probably picking up black smeres from where the plastis bearings have worn.

Two possibilities come to mind. Too much fabric softener, or
the black rubber door seal. Try rubbing the seal with a paper
towel to see it it smudges. Try cleaning with bleach or alcohol,
then rinse it thoroughly with water.

Makes a grnding sound when washing(not always) & does not spin all the water

This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.

Hope this helps.
