Clothes having black marks and getting stuck on top of drum, tearing

Repair was easy, following the disassembly instructions from the video on your site. What I did not know is that it takes 2 pieces of plastic slides from each kind to replace (makes a total of 4). I was lucky in that one of the white ones was still okay and that I accidentally ordered a second one from the greenish kind, so I was set. This was also a great opportunity to clean out the dryer which must have been a bucket full of lint. So far no more complaints. Given that this problem seems to reappear once in a while I'll order a new set soon.

Clothes were getting stuck in the top of the dryer and as a result they were basically getting chewed up (creating holes in clothes).

I googled the problem and found a forum where people were having the same problem. Luckily I found a post that told me the exact parts I needed. I then found a video on youtube, followed every step and completed the repairs in about 45 minutes. I'm a housewife and found this fairly easy. The dryer now works like a charm!

Squeeky noise and eating clothing

I basically watch the video on how to get to the top bearing assy. and to replace the guides and it went pretty easy. The only thing was the drum had to be moved back into the frame because it was sticking to far out. I now have a new dryer and its very quite and does not eat the clothing any more. I received the part fast and I will use parts select for my other appliances.
