I have a Whirlpool Duet dryer that is about 5-6 years old. I have noticed within the last year that burn marks are occuring on random pieces of clothing. These are permanent marks that you cannot remove, therefore ruining many items of clothing.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
Usually, if you are getting brown streaks or marks on clothing, one or both of the drum seals are going bad. Clothing will drag between the bulkhead and the drum, leaving brown marks. If you want to do the repair yourself, I can provide instructions, otherwise call for service.
Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent. There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes: Clogged Lint Trap Crushed or clogged vent Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve. So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away
problem is caused by drum seal usually the back one look closely at seal to see if there appears to be rust if so replacedrum seal ..clothes ten to rub against it while in motion causing brown streaks..would replace both front and rear just to be sure front doesn't give problems soon
