Those are most probably not burn marks but rather stains, usually rust, due to a worn felt seal. The clothes get in contact with the metal surface of the cabinet when any of the front or rear drum felt seal gets worn. If that is the case, replacing the felt seals will address the issue.

Replace both the high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, cycling thermostat, and/or the thermistor if the marks are indeed burn marks. Check also to make sure that the vent duct is clear and the vent flap is fully open when the dryer is in operation.

Usually, if you are getting brown streaks or marks on clothing, one or both of the drum seals are going bad. Clothing will drag between the bulkhead and the drum, leaving brown marks. If you want to do the repair yourself, I can provide instructions, otherwise call for service.

Whirlpool Duet dryer - "burn marks", "out of round" drum


It's not really BURN marks - it is the adhesive used to affix the felt. You can substitute for silicone to remedy this problem.

Brown streaks left on clothes


Not having seen this before, but my best guess would be that the piece of clothes is caught in one position and rubbing on the gasket material around the rear of the drum. Is the mark permanent?

Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
