I would imagine that's exactly what has happened. The boil wash has probably released gunge and grease that was coated on the insides of the washing machine. I would try putting the washing machine on a few more washes without laundry, but put some detergent in which might help as dirt and grime clings to the detergent. Normal 40° washes should be okay.
If you can remove some of this gunge yourself then do so. Otherwise it it's a question of just letting it all get washed out and doing regular maintenance washes from now on.

Had the same probem with black marks on my laundry. Read on the interent it is the bearings!Machine made no rumbling noises, but I had the marks!
Contacted my landlord, who send a technitian, who confirmed -> bearings = cheaper to replace than to repair.
Landlord bought me a new washingmachine.
To my horror there was more black marks on my white laundry with the brand new machine though! Was it the dryer?
I called the dryer service and the nice lady told me to check if the drain hose from my washing machine might be inserted too far into the drain pipe. Should only be 2-3 inches. If inserted to far into the drain tube, teh hose can supposedly suck waste water back into the machine! I pulled out the hose and it was all mucky and about 6 inches into the tube. Now that I have adjusted the hose and run an empty wash cycle to clear the hose etc, the next white wash came out ex any stains - RESULT!?!?!
Just feel sorry that a probably still alright and not so old washing machine has gone to the skip. Wonder if most the black marks = bearing problem posts are facilitated by engineers who just want to sell new machines?!!?
One week on - I actually have found out that as there has been some stains again, which are not there when taking stuff out of the washer, they must originate from inside the dryer!
Hope it's service will finally get me marks free!
