SOURCE: Rusty Drum!
I have the same problem. My dryer was purchased at Sears in Ottawa and the replacement cost for the part required is $137.99 but turns out it is covered by a manufacturer's warranty for 15 years but does not cover labour. I am going ahead with the repair since it's better than spending time removing rust stains from your clothes.
Hope this helps....Good Luck

SOURCE: stains from dryer
rear seal on drum needs replacing front 1 too if it has one the felt seals tend to turn brown and the "rust"will come back off on clothes leaving brown streaks

The front tub support needs to be replaced. It is a felt seal the tub rides on and is getting worn, and the sheets are getting between the drum and seal. no the dryer does not need to be replaced.

The felt needs to be replaced around the drum. When it wears out, this will cause these marks. The felt is the seal that allows the drum to rotate around the door.

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.
