Question about Dryers
Grease on clothes.
I first thought that the grease stains I find on my clothes where from the washing machine. So I replaced it for a new one. Now I still find new stains on my clothes. It is frustrating. Could that be coming from the dryer? Is it worth hiring a repairman? It is an expensive dryer, it is a little old but expensive to replace. Is it something I could try to fix myself?
Does GE offer repair service on older model? Thanks in advance for a feedback at email@example.com
I have the same problem, I haven't resolved it but it seems to be due to the drum of the dryer being able to move more than it's supposed to and things getting caught in between the drum and whatever it sits in, at the front of the dryer. I have found things caught in there before and when I've pulled them out they had a brown/yellow grease stain on them. Other times something in the dryer will have this same stain - although no longer caught it seems it must have been caught at some point then became free again, with the stain. I'm thinking something is loose or if the drum is supported at the back by a bearing of some sort, this bearing may be worn down and the drum isn't sitting right.

There might be a bearing at the rear of the drum, that supports the rear of the drum. When that bearing begins to disintegrate it drops very small pieces of metal into the hot airstream entering the dryer drum, which seem to cause dark streaking on clothing that could be interpreted as grease marks.
