Question about Washing Machines
I have this exact problem. In fact, we went out and bought a brand new Whirlpool HE washer, frontloader to get rid of it once and for all and wouldn't you know it, I've got those marks again. We are beside ourselves!! It is only happening to the shirts like you mentioned. I had a technician once tell me it ''could be'' the fabric softener and the way it mixes with our water, especially if we have hard water. I don't know if he was just fishing for something to tell me or what. He also mentioned to do smaller loads so that it wouldn't get caught on the drum. Basically he had no idea what was making these marks. We have taken the hoses off the back and cleaned them out. Everything has been cleaned and is spotless. Nothing has worked!! I am going to get my water tested this coming week. Still not totally convinced if its the washer or the dryer. I gave our last washer (which was making marks) to my brother. He hasn't had one mark yet!! Works fine for him. If anyone has any good/sound advice, please help!!
There's another possibilty. The marks are coming from your dryer. I had the brown mark problem on my Whirlpool LER4634EQ1 Dryer. It turns out that the inner drum seal wore the paint off the pilot diameter on the inner wall. The pilot diameter rusted and the rust transfered onto the seal. The marks on the clothes are rust marks. I replaced the seal on my dryer, but don't know how long it will last. You may need to try and paint the pilot diameter. The seal with glue was $34 delivered from pcappliancerepair.com. Here's pictures of the rust: http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/ZeeVert/Whirlpool%20Dryer/

You need to install a filtering system on the water supply.
