Are they blotchy or streaked?

Replace the rear drum seal and probably the drum rollers, too.

This job is done from the front.  There are two screws on the bottom of the console about one inch from the ends.  They are attached to a spring loaded clip.  Just pull them down with pliers and the console will flip down.  Remove the ground wire and the two 5/16 screws from the front panel.  Push the front panel up to remove it from the clips. Remove the belt. Remove the top panel so you can spread the sides apart and remove the drum.

Check the belt, if the rubber is cracked, replace it.  The idler pulley should spin freely.

It's hard to say without looking at it.  If the rubber on the rollers have worn down enough, it will create a gap at the bottom of the drum that the clothes can get caught in.

It dries fast.  You can install the drum almost immediately after installing the seal.

The felt seal should have included instructions.
If not here is a copy for you.

You do not need to cut it. It's a tight fit and you may need a extra set of hands or a clamp to help you hold it in place as you stretch it around the drum.
