I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,

SOURCE: Brown spotting on washed clothes
chances are if you have eliminated anything thats got in by accident that the drum bearings are about to go, the drum bearings are protected by a water seal, this has started to leak and is now washing the grease out of the bearings back into the wash, you may also find a small amount of water on the floor, if you also remove the back and look behind the large pulley you may also see brown water marks running from the center of the outer drum
the next step will be a very noisy spin, like a rumbling noise
DRUM BEARINGS sorry

what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

The previous poster was right, the spin speeds on front loaders are incredible. You almost don't have to dry! This is most noticable with heavier clothes, like jeans, especially new ones! This will help a lot: When you take your clothes out of the washer, pop, shake or fluff the wrinkled garment pretty good before you toss it in the dryer. Using a dryer softener sheet will lessen the effect as well. You can also select a lower spin speed, and make up the moisture difference in the dryer. Try shaking the clothes first as this is less expensive than operating the dryer, then back off of the spin speeds as your pocketbook allows!
