Hi David,

It is possible you could be finding grease from the bearings working its way into the drum, though not very common.

Start by inspecting the drum with a torch to see if you can see any sines where the grease is coming from, if you can see signs inside the drum it a case of stripping the unit down and seeing if the bearings need replaced or just cleaned up with a rag.

If you cant see anything in or around the drum, then its very unlikely the marks are coming from the dryer.
