The felt liner between the drum and the front door was worn out. The plasitc glides were all torn apart. Clothes would catch in the rim of the dryer.

Anyways, just lift the lid and tilt the front of the dryer down (after unplugging the control panel). Although only the top of the felt was messed up, i replaced the whole thing. I used the paint stripper to take off the glue residue from the previous felt.

Once it was clean it was easy to glue the felt pieces in place, easy reassembly and the dryer is good as new.

The design of this dryer sucks. This is the 2nd time the felt was repaired. The first time cost well over $300.
