This problem is happening more and more. I've ruined a lot of clothing especially white shirts. I'm sure it's on our darks as well, but you can't see that. We have a new hot water heater within the past two years. The washer was purchased in December of 1999 model 110.20922990. Thanks for the help.
I must assume you noticed the brown streaks on the clothing as you pull them out of the washer and not when you pull them out of the dryer. The dryer too can cause brown streaks if the drum rollers or drum seals are worn out or missing.If you know the brown streaks are definitely coming from the washer then the likely cause is one of two things:
I did what the expert recommended and removed the outer shell. I cleaned the crud that was between the two tubs. It was 10 years worth of laundry residue and dog hair. I have done a couple of loads and have not seen any brown streaks on my new white clothes. I was able to do this by myself, but I could not imagine a tech coming to my home and cleaning this for me. It was worth the trouble.
