The felt strip does not go all of the way around. If you remove the 4 screws around the door it will let you take the front panel off. There is another panel behind it. Once you remove all of the screws, you can take this off as well and there are a dozen opr so clips holding the front of the tub on. This will let you look all of the way around between the inner and outer tubs.

The dryer has felt strips on the front that the drum rubs on. When the felt wears out there is room for clothes to get between the drum and the felt which puts the burnt looking streak on them. Remove the front panel to access the front of drum and the felt guides.
Yes it is very likely the rear drum bearing. unfortunately the rear bearing is not sold separately it comes with the rear tub half. this is both an extensive and expensive repair .Unless you have some kind of extended warranty you might want to use it as long as possible the replace the whole thing
Hi, it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor. OE is overflow
error. Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand
side. It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a
electrical connection to the board. Paid maytag man to
diagnose/install cost me about $150.
There is a recall on the circuit board for certain Maytag Neptune washers. See the link below:
The wholesale cost of the part is about $400+shipping. You'd pay more... I'm in the business and mine did the same thing. When we couldn't turn the TV up loud enough anymore, I pitched it and bought a Duet!
This can be a symptom of drum bearing wear.
A quick check for wear is to see if the inner drum moves up and down
relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only move a minute amount.
If it moves more than a milli metre or two, it is probably worn
bearings. You can obtain bearing kits for most makes.
it is making unusual noises while washing too, check there is not a wire or similar object trapped half way into one of the drum holes. A
high pitched whine is sometimes caused by the motor bearings (but most
brush/commutator motors whine a bit anyway on higher speeds, it is
normal). Oil sparingly so as not to contaminate the carbon brushes.
