    I manually spun the baffles, they made like a grinding noise, like
    metal to metal? And I did hear something loose moving around. No
    crayons left in there, but black marks on a pair of beige pillowcases I
    dried.

Nothing in the dryer i.e.crayon left in pocket?? there is no black grease used in the unit only White lithium style.. I dont think it came from the inside of the mach ...Best bet is to clean the tub out mild soap and a damp cloth it should go away. if not the peice maybe stuck in the baffles manually spin the drum do you hear anything rattling around?? Let me know

    could be the bearing going out and the dust (like your brakes on your car) is getting sucked into the dryer area.. If the unit is older that 5 years you might be best off to call in a tech and have them service it anmd delint it then you can have the brearing checked at that time

Dryer drys great. is leaving black marks on clothes


Are the black marks a result of an ink stain in the drum or is the black marks coming for the dryer seal?

If they are coming from an ink stain then alcohol or hair spray with paper towels will normally get them off the drum.

If the black marks are coming from the seal, that means that the seal is not positioned correctly and would require that the dryer be disassebled and a new seal be installed.

Maytag gas dryer about 10 years old leaving black smudge marks on clothing. The wheel was hanging up on the dryer drum. Could there be other causes for the smudge marks?


your clothes are getting caught between the drum and the rim due to bearings out of the wheel guides. These guides are what the drum rests on when it is turning. Most dryers you can access these guides by taking the front off the dryer. Not a big expense just a little difficult to get to .

Maytag dryer is leaving black marks or rings on clothes


If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: Rollers Rear seal Front glides Front seal Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set. Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it. Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Dryer squeeking while tumbling & leaves black smudge on clothes


it sounds like a drum support roller is going bad or the belt idler pulley. i think maytag has a kick panel on the bottom that can be removed. look inside with a flashlight and you may be able to see something. if not, you may have to take the drum out to get a really good look. make a note and study how the drive belt serpentines around the motor, pulley, and drum so you can get it back together.

The dryer is squealing and leaving burn marks on the clothes


Squeak is caused by a worn out roller rolling metal to metal - Most dryers have rollers, felts and drum slides to balance drum rotation:
When rollers wear off, black powder leaks to rear felts and black marks are left on clothes.
Same thing happens when drum slides wear off (black marks are left on clothes)
