SOURCE: brown streaks on clothes
Are the streaks on smaller pieces of clothing (socks, etc.)? If so, the clothing item might be getting caught inside the rubber gasket around the door, and getting the streak from there. Try cleaning inside the fold of the rubber gasket very well, and often and see if it keeps happening.

Make up a couple of liters of a strong solution of hot water and Soda Crystals, pour that mix into the machine without any laundry in it and do couple of very hot washes
Change your soap powder to one of the old fashioned ones for a month or so and see how you get on.
Cold washing tends to leave body fats and other greases inside the machinea s there is little to break them down in "Modern" powders

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.
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.
Appliance paint by color needed:
