i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.
If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:RollersRear sealFront glidesFront sealRollersYour
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 sealYour
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 glidesYour
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 sealMany
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.
This will work. Soak white towel or other white fabric in bleach water, then slightly wring them out, leaving very wet. Then put them in dryer, on low or fluff cycle. Run for 60 minutes or more. This should rub off all the ink in the dryer. You may have to repeat if you have alot of ink. I have done this a few times and it has always work, good luck. Dan
I had this same problem. I turned out to be the seal around the drum. You have to remove the drum and put in another seal. Not real hard to do. You can order the seal from sears and I think the glue came with it. Just have to remove the lint vent screws and then the top lifts off. then remove the screws to the front panel. Hold the drum because it will fall. Unhook the belt. Remember how it connects. Then take the drum off and remove the seal and as much leftover glue and fabric. Glue the new seal on and let dry. I did overnight. It should have directions. then replace everything. just make the seal is on the same way you took it off so look at everthing before you remove anything. Once the seal was replaced no more stains.
ck rear (or front if it has one)drum seals they tend to develop rust stains over time the rust comes off on clothes leaving brown streaks ..seals will need to be replaced although you may try a bleach and water solution first drum will need to be removed to replace seals
The 417 dryers have two seals on the front panel, the top seal has drum glides which wear down over time. Because the drum rests on those glides, when it wears down it leaves a gap between the drum and the seal, clothes will drag in that gap and come out with rust and/or seal adhesive stains. Try replacing the top and lower seals, this works most of the time...sometimes though, if left unattended long enough, the lack of support from the front glides causes too much strain on the rear drum bearing, and even after replacing the seals clothes may still catch, although the brown spotting will stop for awhile. You can feel the gap if you run your hand along the inside of the drum at the seal point.
