Black Marks On Clothes

Recommended Posts

The most likely cause is that the rubber bearing seal has failed. This allows water into the bearings which will wash the grease out and it gets drawn into the tub and onto the clothes.

You will really need to have the bearings and seal replaced. This is quite a big job - at least 2 hours labour for a pro and all day of a job for a DIY'er with the correct tools.

If the washing machine is noisy on spin then drum bearings could be the issue as blueboy2001 mentions. If the door seal is covered in black mould maybe it could be the problem.

There are some general points worth looking at in these links -

Washing isn't coming out clean or has marks on it (Last article at bottom of page)
