Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer get brown streaks on clothing

Spot remover does not remove stains; however, Colthing streaks come out with "WINK" which is a rust remover. We tried cleaning the washer with product made to clean washers and still have streaks in clothing. Whirlpool has no hot line for help

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

    RUST! It can be the dryer vent at the back of the unit drum wall. Ours began rusting and leaving small stripes on white clothing. I have used fine grit sand paper to clean up, but it keeps coming back. I am either going to replace the part, or look into high heat paint to seal it.

I have a Whirlpool Duet front load dryer. It puts rust streaks on all of my clothes. I can not find the source of the rust.


The drum is stainless steel.
Maybe a nut or bolt is in the water flow tubing that is giving off rust.
looks like you are going to have to take off some of the tubes inside and have a look to see if you can find anything amiss.

Brown streaks on my clothes after washing them


O.K. Here it is, I solved it. After calling whirlpool who was of no help at all, reading all links about the Duet washer and/or the Duet dryer, I finally solved the problem myself. I too, thought it was the washer but, upon close inspection, found the felt on the dryer had worn out in one spot. The thin brown lines always showed up on whites and more so on anything very thin. I took the dryer apart and found a small burn line on the drum (brown and thin). I replaced the felt ($60) and used Simple Green to clean off the brown. Works perfect, no more thin brown lines. If you can't take the dryer apart, I called for repair and found the price with parts to average $250.
I was ready to sell the darn thing after it ruined about $300 worth of clothes. All in all, it's been three weeks and still working fine.

Brown streaks


Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the ports on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust and debris. A common problem is the screens getting rusty and putting the iron oxide into the wash water causing brown stains or streaks to get on clothing and sometimes leaving a brown ring around the tub. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Whirlpool duet front loader washer/dryer


It is not the dryer causing the problem. We get the brown streaks on our white clothes before putting them in the dryer. I have ruined more white clothes over the past six months with this Duet washing machine!!! We also don't use bleach so I don't think it is the HE/Clorox combo that somebody mentioned earlier. Anybody know what exactly is causing this yet... before I throught the moldy stain causing Whirlpool duet out?
