Your drum rollers may be going bad (grinding noise) which will sometimes cause the drum to drop slightly, creating a gap where the clothes get caught as the drum rotates. (black streaks)

Most likely the front drum bearing part number 5303937139 needs to be replaced. Instructions come with the kit.

SOURCE: white clothes have black streaks after drying.

You will have to have the dryer drum felts replaced. It requires removing the drum from the dryer so you may want to have a technician do this because removing the belt can be tricky.

SOURCE: When turning, loud grinding noise.

Can be a tensioner pulley with bad bearings or the rear drum bearing is shot. When the rear drum bearing goes bad, the drum drops slightly and starts rubbing and making all sorts of terrible noises. I would not run it like this as the pivot on the rear of the drum that rides in the bearing could be cutting into the support. Not a good thing.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Dryer leaving black marks on clothes

Sounds like the drum rollers are shot and/or the drum bearing is shot. I believe this dryer also has a front bearing ring that might be bad.

If the drum is tilted because of either or both of these things, clothes can get pinched between the spinning drum and the stationary surrounding areas, resulting in streaks.

As for whether it is worth having someone fix it, prices vary greatly from one repair company to the next.

Dryers are probably the easiest appliances to repair by a do-it-yourselfer. Here is a slideshow on how to open the dryer up if you want to try to fix it yourself:

There are many online parts stores to check prices of these parts.I have found that repairclinic.com is the best place for do it yourselfers.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!
