this can happen because the back air vent (inside the drum if you open the door) gets too hot because your vent through your house is clogged. This can also happen because the drum seal around the front or back of your drum is starting to break down and needs to be replaced. The felt seal will actually rub and start to leave an orangish brown streak marks on clothes. You'd need to replace the drum seals if this is the issue.
