nothing in the dryer i.e.crayon left in pocket?? there is no black grease used in the unit only White lithium style.. I dont think it came from the inside of the mach ...Best bet is to clean the tub out mild soap and a damp cloth it should go away. if not the peice maybe stuck in the baffles manually spin the drum do you hear anything rattling around?? Let me know

I have the same problem. We think it is because the barrel is out of balance and the clothes are getting stuck between the barrel and the housingand the grease is causing the black marks. But I dont know how to fix that.

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.
