Question about Washing Machines
I've had this problem for many months now. Even when it ruined my favorite tops & jeans, I couldn't get myself to let go of them... Good thing though because I have found a solution! Make a paste using cream of tartar and hydrogen peroxide. Generously spread the paste over the stains and let sit for about 5 minutes. Boil enough water to fully immerse the stained garment in. While waiting for the water to boil, figure out a way to wrap/roll the garment so that the paste doesn't come off when put into the water. You want the paste to melt onto the stain while in the hot water. After wrapping/rolling the garment, secure it with string or thread (anything that won't melt) that doesn't have color, just in case it bleeds. After the water has come to a full boil, immerse the garment into the hot water and let it soak. After about 15 minutes, remove the garment from the water. The water should still be very hot, so I use cooking tongs to get it out. Let the garment cool down to room temperature while still rolled up. After it has fully cooled, unwrap the garment. There should be very little or none of the paste left on the stain. If there is still a great deal of paste, you may want to soak it again until the paste melts a bit more. Once the paste is gone, rinse of the garment and it should be clean & stain free. :o)

Its the felt drum seal (clothes getting stuck in there and getting the greasy adhesive on them). I took a Q-tip and slid it between the felt seal and the metal, and the color and consistency of what came out was the same as the marks on the clothes.
