Wipe down the inside with deluded white vinegar and water,then run a cycle with just bleach. This will help!!

You could either have brown water or rust in the pipes.

This could be an issue with something that was washed in the machine before or you have rust in your pipes. I would give the machine a good cleaning and see if it has a self cleaning cycle. If not then you need to clean it yourself with vinegar and water.

Run a cycle with a lot of bleach in the water and then wipe it out again. You should also check the color of the water when the machine is running. If you see brown water then you need to get your piipes checked for rust.

I am curious to see what the streaks look like. Could you post a photo? There are so many variables that it could be anything from a dirty washer, to a rusted piece touching the clothing, to bad water.

Maybe if I saw what you see I could offer a more appropriate answer than just guessing. Looking forward to helping!

This could be caused by a number of things but a picture would help.

Also, has this happened more than once or was this a one time occurrence?
If a one time occurrence do you remember having extra soiled clothing in this wash?
Do you have well water or city water?
Are the streaks on all the clothing or just certain types of material?
Are you using any type of new soap or fabric softener?

So many variables.
Maybe some of the suggestions listed by others will work.
