Hi. Thanks for using fixya. I can help you. When clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: Rollers 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. Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. 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 front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front bearing assembly or just the slides. Easy check is open the door reach in and push up in the front if the drum has play replace bearing assembly or maybe just get away with the slides if it hasn't eaten in to far. To replace watch the video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

The marks are coming from your dryer seal. I had the brown mark problem on my Whirlpool LER4634EQ1 Dryer. It turns out that the inner drum seal wore the paint off the pilot diameter on the inner wall. The pilot diameter rusted and the rust transfered onto the seal. The marks on the clothes are rust marks. I replaced the seal on my dryer, but don't know how long it will last. You may need to try and paint the pilot diameter. The seal with glue was $34 delivered from pcappliancerepair.com. Here's pictures of the rust: http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/ZeeVert/Whirlpool%20Dryer/
