Clothes got burn marks

After pulling out and unplugging my machine I followed the procedure already worked out by others. I bought and replaced all the parts that were listed as involved with this problem, since I only wanted to do this once and the parts were pretty cheap. The only slightly hard part was reconnecting the drum to the bearing, this could be easier with a third hand.Everything went well and the dryer works fine.

Small brown burn like marks on clothes.

The online descriptions were very helpful. I used a wooden kitchen fork to pry open the top of the dryer from the front, about 3 inches in from each side. Two metal springs hold the lid. The wire harness was on the right and two disconnects were easy to separate. Remember to disconnect power before you start. On the inside on the left and right sides are two screws which hold the front on. Remove these screws and the front panel will lean forward. Remember to support the drum as you pull the front off. Remove both top and bottom felt seals. I used a putty knife to aid in the removal of seals. Scrap the residue with the putty knife to remove. Run a bead of glue all around and let set for two minutes. Place top drum guide on first, and center on top. Put lower felt seal on next and tie a rope all around on top of felt, to hold in place while glue dries. Let dry for 30 minutes and remove the rope. Reassembly dryer. Test on low heat. It really is easy to do. Celebrate.

The upper drum glide was worn out

I followed the directions that came with the new Drum Glide kit. Unplugged the machine from the wall outlet. Raised the top of the machine which only required releasing the front top clips. Removed the two screws that hold the front cover on. Unplugged the harness connectors to the controls on the front cover. Pulled the front cover loose from the retaining clip and raised it to release the lower part of the front cover. I then removed both the Glide and the lower seal. Had to use Acetone to remove the old adhesive. Used the adhesive that came in the kit to put the new glide and lower basket seal on. I used small clamps to ensure a good fit as the adhesive cured.
Then I put the front cover on raising the drum in the front to allow it to fit into the front cover. The rest was the reverse of what I did to remove the cover. I feel this is an ease repair. The hardest part is cleaning the old adhesive off.

CustomerFrancis from Colesburg IA

Once in a while a piece of clothing would get stuck between the dryer tumbler and the frame around it, it would leave a burn mark on the piece of clothing that got stuck.

I noticed that the dryer drum had some free play and would allow the clothing to get lodged between the drum and the frame around it. I popped the top off the dryer and found that the lining on top of the frame work that carries the drum was woren out. I got on the web and the parts listings and order the part on a thursday and the part was here the next day in the afternoon. I took the old part off and glued the new part on and left it dry over night. the next day I assembled the dryer and it was back in use. The wife was very happy that no more clothing was getting lodge and ruined.

Rust marks on clothes during drying cycle.

I'm not very mechanically inclined, but even I thought this was a pretty easy repair. Just pull off the old seal and glide and glue on the new one. I let the glue dry over night, but in reality it probably would have been fine to use the dryer after an hour or so. We've been laundry all day and everything seems tip-top.

Clothes were getting caught in the drum and causing burn marks

The upper glides were worn off and the felt had worn down causing the drum to have a gap at the bottom between the drum and the front panel. Clothes would get caught in this gap.
Removed the top cover and front cover. You do not have to remove the drum to install these parts.
I pulled off the old seals and guides. I used a Dremmel and wire brushed off the old glue. Applied the new glue [supplied with parts] and attached the new seal and guides. While the glue was drying I installed the new belt.
Reinstalled the front panel and the top panel.
Works like new.

Rip cloths, buttons being cut off, rust on cloths.

Removed power, gently pried off top with flat screwdriver and undid grounding clip. Put top off to the side.
removed the two philips screw on each top inside of the front panel to side panels. Pried front down and forward, then lifted off front to the side where the wire harness is. Leave the wires alone! On the front, remove the old guide and drum seal, then take a scrubby and the brake cleaner to remove the old glue. Apply the provide glue to the front panel where the guide will go. Note: I think it would be better to slightly rotate the guide in the direction of where the rotation is from. The first two pads were worn off but the third was ok. After the glue is tacky, place the guide on the front panel the same orientation as the one removed. repeat this step for the seal. reassemble in reverse order and you are done. This was the 2nd time I had to do this on the same dryer.

Dryer was rubbing, 'burning' holes in clothes

First, I would like to thank PartSelect for the great video. It gave me courage to see how simple it was to do a dryer repair. Also, all the repair stories helped tremendously. Thanks to all of you for sharing your story!

I could tell the top glide and lower basket seal were worn because I could wiggle the door end of the basket up and down.

The repair was simple. I raised the top by inserting a putty knife between the top and front to release the retaining clips. Then, I unplugged the two wires from the front. I removed the two screws from the upper-inside of the front to loosen it. I inserted a flat screwdriver between the side and the front to release the side retaining clips. The front came right off.

I put the top on a raised stand to make it convenient to work on. With a pencil, I marked the two points where the upper glide/seal and the lower seal met. Then I pulled off the seals and scraped the remaining seal residue with a small putty knife. A screwdriver or chisel would work well also. I also used a little lacquer to remove the remaining glue. I applied the glue to the front panel and installed one seal at a time (there's plenty of glue in the tube for both seals) I clamped the seals to the front panel with some clothes pins and let them dry for 30 minutes. This gave me time to vacuum the inside of the dryer. Installation of the front took just a few minutes.

The dryer works GREAT ! It took me a little under 2 hours to do the repair but I really took my time to make sure everything was done right and fitted properly. Easy repair.

CustomerRobin from Devay IN

Dryer was making a loud squealing noise, brown marks on clothes and making pin holes in some clothes. The clothes would get wrapped around the drum and the door.

Took the drum out, saw that the top part, drum guide was wore and three plastic guides were wore plus broken. Called Partselect to order part and they recommended the replacement of Lower basket seal. Which made sense once we looked at it.

The parts arrived with regular shipping in two days.

Had to remove the worn parts. Make sure the old glue is removed and the service is clean before installing new guide and seal. They include glue with the packet.

We put the new parts on and using finger pressure made sure the guide and seal fit firmly to the drum. We let it sit over night and put the drum back in the next day.

While we were at it the dryer received a thorough cleaning around the parts you cannot get to when the drum is installed.

The dryer now works fine.

Squeaking screeching groaning

First I removed the top, custom on mine, as it was originally stacked. Then two screws inside near the top come out, and the front was pulled out at the top and lifted off the clips at the base. Best access to the belt tensioner is to remove the air intake panel on the back.

With the belt off the tensioner and motor pulley, the drum can be lifted up and out through the front after removing three screws from the inside that hold the drum to the bearing assembly. The original screws are #2 square/phillips combo, better to reuse than the new phillips only ones if a square drive bit is used.

Then the bearing assembly comes off by removing two screws from the back. For reassembly, there is a steel ball that goes in under the plate in the back. It sits in a hole in the plastic shell of the bearing assembly to help align it. I stuck it in place with grease from the bearing kit, and used my knee to hold the plate over it while holding the bearing assembly with one hand and starting the screws with the other.

The basket seal and drum glide felt were peeled off. Repeated soaking with a citrus based goo remover, scraping with a putty knife, and a little scrubbing with an abrasive plastic pad got the old glue off. A rinse and quick wipe with acetone prepared the surface for the new adhesive. It only needed a minute to get tacky, before the new seal and glide were stuck on.

Brown streaks on clothes

Pry top up, unfasten front side screws and pull front side away. Scrape off old felt liners and old glue from the front side drum rails. This was the hardest part of the job. I used a Citrus paint remover to help soften the old glue. Clean metal up with spay soap and water. Re-glue new liner in place. Re-assemble dryer.
