That is not the cause of the brown spots, the front or rear felt is worn out, i've seen the rusty inlet and output for 19 yrs and never saw that cause brown spots yet, your clothes will never come into contact with the holes long enough to cause a spot!

Rust in barrel


Clean area of rust and sand edges of enamel around spot. Apply rust reformer to area, and when dry, apply a coat of J-B weld to overlap the edges. Auto parts stores have these items, about $10 total.

I am getting little brown spots on my white clothing. Bleach seems to take them out. It just started happening.


sounds like a rear drum shaft seal may be leaking and getting either rust or brown grease spots on your clothes.If this the case,you should be able to see signs of water leakagein the back of the unit.Take the rear cover off and look in the area behind the large drum pulley.This problem also usually results in noisy operation eventually.The water would be getting into the tub bearing behind the seal.

Brown streaks on flat, thin items like pillow


Hi Witt and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

The brown streaks are most likely rust. There are drum seal replacement kits you can buy to start anew. The streak source need to be identified. If the drum is rusted your going to have to sand and paint it with an enamel appliance paint. However.... if it is the back of the cabinet that is the source of the rust in the felt seal rub area if you do not allow the paint to dry well before reassembly it will end up flaking off on your clothes.

Here is the drum seal with adhesive:

Once you in there I would replace the belt and inspect the drum rollers.

Belt:

Rollers:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3098345

The belt I would replace... Just make sure if you attempt repair that you NOTE the routing of the dryer belt through the idle pulley to the motor pulley.

If the rollers rotate freely with no teetering froward or aft and do not have any flat spots you do not have to replace them.

Excessive lint on or near the heater coils will send smoldering lint onto the clothes. Use a flash light and go inside the drum to see the heating coils or lifting the top up who should be able to see the lint build-up on the coils. These need to be cleaned.

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.

Brown streaks of clothing from dryer


Check your front and rear felt seals. How old is the dryer and what is the model number?

Rust spots showing up on the clothes?


Give the clothes more drying time and then remove them as soon as the dryer stops. Over the years, dryers get chipped inside and if damp clothing is allowed to lay on the chipped areas, rust spots will appear.
Also, If you have a lot of iron deposits in your water, you might want to put a filter in your line into your washer.

Hot spots in the drum perhaps. Check for a loose heating element.

Clothes dryer


It could be rust stains coming from the tub of the dryer during the drying cycle. The only concern is that rust stains are usually brown streaks on the clothes. I'd check the to make sure there are no rust stains on the tub, check the seal of the door to make sure its still in good condition. The last possibilty could be a good cleaning of the dryer (removing lint from the lint screen compartment and the tub of the dryer).

A schematic of your dryer can be found on www3.sears.com and should show how to get into your lint screen compartment and your tub.
