THE PROBLEM: Rust marks in the shape of a V started appearing on my clothes. I finally realized that there was gap at the bottom between the drum and the outer frame that was caused by the upper drum support having deteriorated... Clothing would slip into the gap into the area where the metal of the spinning drum was exposed - then spin upward leaving a small rust mark... INSTALLATION: The video of installing this product was spot-on! I removed the old glide and residual glue (the glue was the hardest part), then put the new glide on. After the glue dried enough to hold the felt in place, I put it all back together. So far, no more rust marks on my clothes!
