Strange brown spots on clothes

Recommended Posts

Of 3 out of the last 4 washes I have noticed than an item of clothing has a strange round circle on it, I can't tell what it is or what it's from, but it the same size/shape on all 3 items of clothing I have found it on (2 tops and 1 underwear, not noticed it on anything else)

Yes it's strange. Is the mark by any chance the same size as one of the holes in the drum? The first thing I would do is put the washing machine on a boil wash or at least 60 degrees. Put in some detergent but no laundry. You might also want to try some of the specially designed washing machine cleaning products. The closest article I have is about rust spots on clothes after washing but I don't know if they are rust spots or not.
