Washing machine leaving dark spots on clothes

Hello, Recently my washing machine has been leaving dark spots/stains(like a coffee stain) on my clothes. The spots show up obviously only on whites and bright colors, thing is the spots will only show up on the odd piece of clothing not every one. I can't figure out what is happening other than something is wrong with my machine?
Thanks

What kind of water supply are you on? City, well or lake?

Have you tried running it empty with some cleaning solution to give it a good clean out?

My Kenmore has the model number listed on the lid. Look there for yours..on the sticker on the lid when it is open. Could be you have a seal leaking some grease. After you find your model number look it up in partsdirect.com and see an exploded view of the tub area. Maybe you will see an area that might be your problem.
