SOURCE: I have a GE front
I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.

sounds as if yo umay have a bad rear bearing, and the off balance of it is "throwing " the belt. magor repair, and would ck with manufacture, for possible part warr

Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.
Please rate my solution.

Try putting some locktite on the thread of the bolt. Loctite is a liquid you can buy to lock bolts into there threads.Alternativley the pulley that the belt runs on may be worn & sloppy in the centre where it goes on the metal shaft.you may need a new pulley as well as Loctite..but try the Loctite first.
