Burn/rust marks on clothes
Like many others, i was suffering the problem of rust marks on clothes, which ruins them for good.

We have a Frigidaire Gallery dryer, gas, front loading stacked in top of the washer, which is about 7 or 8 years old.

Turns out the top felt seal was worn out, allowing clothes to get stuck between the drum and the door where they would get the rust colored stain. I think this is fairly common. It also "ate" zippers and buttons.

To open the dryer up, you first want to remove 2 screws at the bottom of the front panel, they are covered by little plastic plugs that pop out. Then, go in through the top- you have to pop the lid up from the front, and it swings up like a car hood. from the top, you have to reach in and undo a screw on each side that holds the front panel to the body of the dryer. it's a little tricky.

After those four screws are removed, the front panel is held on by pressure clips, which you can reach from the top and squeeze so they 'let go'. As those release, the front panel will fall outward with the bottom still attached- there are two small pieces of metal at the bottom that the panel sits in. So you lift the panel straight up to get them off those two guides/hooks, and it's clear.

Next you'll want to shop vac the heck out the whole dryer interior. Mine was caked with dust and lint.

Step two is felt replacement. you have to use some muscle to tear the felt off the top of the door opening, which will leave a bunch of ripped felt stuck to the high temp glue. That's where the wire brush and the Goof Off come in. That stuff worked like a charm to remove every last bit of felt and glue.

Once clean and dry, apply the glue that came with the felt guide, set the felt in place (with those plastic pieces facing up), and hold in place for a while. I used plastic clamps to hold the felt in place for about 30 minutes while the glue set.

For good measure, i also replaced the dryer belt and the plastic ball joint that the drum sits in, but i don't think that was necessary. The belt may be a good idea, and to do that you remove the belt by popping it off the little plastic wheel under the drum first, then it'll be loose and you can remove the belt and put a new one on. (This is also a little tricky, take it one step at a time.)

Then put it back together in reverse order and you'll be done with those rust marks.

(Mine is working great)

Hub inside knob cracked
What the pictures do not show is the inner clamp spring that grips the selector switch shaft so it will not easily fall off. It is not shown or mentioned but in fact was installed in the knob. Read more...

Brian from Venice, FL
The knob was broken.
I positioned myself directly in front of the malfunctioning Frididaire dryer. Carefully griping the defective knob, I applied precisely the correct lateral pull to cause the offending appliance component to come away in my hand. Being ever mindful of the possibility of mixing up the two identical parts, old and new, and recognizing the potentially catastrophic results of such carelessness, I segregated the old part from the new one by immediately placing it in a convenient waste basket. Having applied due diligence to the safe and proper disassembly process, I secured the new knob in my right hand, and being extremely careful to achieve correct alignment, I positioned the replacement in such a way as to require only a moderately firm push to slide the knob onto the switch shaft. Once the installation was complete, I tested the apparatus by turning the knob 360 degrees in a clockwise direction. Satisfied that all new components were functioning nominally, and that the planets of our solar system were still in synchronous orbit around the sun, I rewarded myself with a cold Miller Lite. Since any job worth doing, is worth doing right, I reflected upon the difficulties of the task I had just completed and reveled in a self-congratulatory moment. I hope my experience will serve as inspiration to others, and help them overcome the great challenges in their own lives. Read more...

James from Wheaton, IL
The old dryer setting knob snapped off at the shaft and we could not use the dryer
First, I unplugged the dryer and removed the screws that held the dial housing. Next, I checked the wires to ensure they were still hooked up to the dryer settng device. Then, I removed the broken portion of the old knob and reassembled the dial housing. Finally, I slipped the new knob onto the shaft and tested the machine. Everything worked like a charm.

Richard from Minnetonka, MN
Timer Knob was broken & impossible to turn the timer without using a wrench
Part arrived earlier than expected & when replacing the knob I merely lined it up with the timer shaft which was a 1/2 round shaft. It slipped on very easy & I just pushed the knob on as far as it would go. Replacement of the knob makes life much easier in being able to turn the timer on without use of a wrench. Very, very satisified customer. Read more...

BUTTON
PartSelect Number PS416871
Manufacturer Part Number 131111501
This button is used in dryers to activate the control switch. If your push button is inconsistent when you try to turn it on, or the shaft is damaged, replacing the button can solve the problem. To repair, simply pull out the old knob and insert the new knob by lining it up with the shaft. Remember that it is important to unplug the dryer from the power source or switch off the breaker in circuit panel before starting. This is done to help protect you from an electric shock. For installation instructions, refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer.
