That could mean your overloading your dryer to the point the wheel bearings are squished really bad. When loading your washing machine you should always be able to see the water level more than the clothes, your clothes should be floating in the water. That way, when you unload your washing machine and go to dry, you will have the right amount of clothes everytime

On my whirlpool stack washer / electric dryer unit ( 27" ) the dryer puts burn spots in the clothes"

If your clothes have burn spots that probably means the drum is not turning and/or you have a very dangerous "always on" grounded heating element problem. If your heating element is grounded that is very dangerous, and you should unplug your machine before it burns your house down.

I get brown spots on light clothes, looks like burn marks. What is the cause for this and can it be fixed?

Look for grease in the washer, and look for lint that has gotten into the burner of the dryer. It is usually burned lint that causes this issue, correct dryer venting is the solution, after completely cleaning the unit.

Dryer makes a high pitched squeel when drying

This is caused by the rear bearing for the drum. Have it serviced very soon, as you can save it by applying grease. A new bearing will set you back $40 or so and is unnecessary if you catch it now. . If the front felt runners are worn, have that replaced also. This has to be done or otherwise risk ruining the front of the drum.

Frigidaire FSGC747GE gas dryer is causing spots

you may need to replace the upper and lower drum felts, if they are worn, some of the clothing may be getting caught agains the drum and getting a mark on them. if the mark is like a pencil line mark it will be from the dryer, if it is more like an oil spot it will be from your washer. take a look at #20 & 21 in this may also need to replace the rear bearing which is #12 in this other picture. hope these help you.

Gas dryer leaves black grease spots on clothes

the soot is coming from the flame at the gas heater box the drier needs to be converted to propane the flame is too large without the conversion kit installed and thus creates soot at the vent. contact a local repair place for this one it can be tricky.

Brown spots on clean white clothes

The drum seal is bad in your dryer. Those brown spots are burn marks. It's actually burning your clothes. Unfortunately this is not an easy fix. The same thing happened to my wife and I. I can fix many things, but I decided this wasn't worth fixing since I'd have to take apart the whole dryer to fix it. It would've been very time consuming and you'd have to have the technical ability to tackle the job. We just bought a new dryer.

Narrow streak of what looks like grease on clothes from dryer

hi anne-
Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.
Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Rust spots showing up on the clothes?

Give the clothes more drying time and then remove them as soon as the dryer stops. Over the years, dryers get chipped inside and if damp clothing is allowed to lay on the chipped areas, rust spots will appear.
Also, If you have a lot of iron deposits in your water, you might want to put a filter in your line into your washer.

Moffat heavey Duty Dryer

Hi and thank you for your request.
Assuming the marks were not there before you put them in the dryer, then there are a couple of possibilities for the marks appearing.
Check that none of the clothes lifters or ribs as they are sometimes called in the drum are not loose, as the clothes could get caught in any gaps,make sure that there is no large gap between the drum front and the front of the dryer, as again clothes could get caught here,,check to see nothing is stuck on the drum itself that could transfer onto the clothes.
Make sure the drum is free to turn and that there is no unusual noise coming from it, if it does appear to be noisier than usual ,then it could be the drum rollers or bearings are starting to wear and this could transfer grease and the like onto your clothes.
Hope these suggestions help with your prob.
Plz feel free to leave any comments and rate my suggestions.

Dark grease stains on the cloths after drying

Most likely a bearing failure, a seal that retains grease has given up and is spewing into the drum through a shaft opening of some kind.

If you are positive there is no grease in some of the clothes, or someone is putting it in the drum, then a seal has failed, and now that the grease is coming out, the bearing it is was supposed to lubricate is now low, and will fail prematurely, you need a service call and soon.
