Product Description

Cylinder Felt Seal Specifications

This cylinder felt seal is used in dryers and is located between the back of the drum and the rear dryer panel. If your dryer is experiencing any of these symptoms, replacing the felt seal could solve your problem: squealing or banging noise, clothes are getting stuck between tub and felt pad, takes too long to dry, not heating enough or not heat at all, or does not tumble. The tools needed for this installation are a 5/16 nut driver and a putty knife. Make sure to unplug the dryer from the power source before beginning this project. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for further instructions.

I have a Maytag dryer.. are clothes are getting stuck in the front part of the dryer.. it's ripping them & getting black marks on them.. do i need to get a cylinder felt seal for the front???
For model number MDET336AYW
Hello Elisha, thank you for contacting us. That does sound like it could be the felt seal. You may also want to check the lint duct assembly. The part the lint trap goes in and make sure there is nothing there that can catch on clothes or looks worn down. Good luck with the repair!

I need to replace the front felt seal on the drum. This part is listed in the diagram as being in the front bulkhead assembly but the description says it's the rear. Can i use this on the front or is there another part?
For model number Ale643raw
Hi Kathryn, thank you for your question. Looking at your model the felt seals on both the back and the front are the same type, so yes, this part would also work on the front of your drum there. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I'm wondering if this is the correct part number for the front of the drum on my Amana dryer? It is torn and the stitching has let go over a large section.

The dryer felt seal for the drum came out and was twisted beyond repair. Will the dryer run ok if this seal is not replaced?
For model number MDG3706AWW
Hello Jack, thank you for your question. It would be recommended to replace it if it is damaged, as not having one could lead to your clothes getting caught up inside the dryer or a squealing or banging noise. It could also lead to a lack of heat in the dryer. We hope this answers your question.

Putting new felt seal on rear drum today. Which way does the felt seal go, thinner part facing up with thicker edge towards the barrel? I thought I could use the old one as a reference but it’s really worn out!
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for the question.Here is a link to the video on the repair. It should help determine how to install the new seal. Good luck with the repair! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqCqrLo2JKo

When you turn on the clothes dryer there is a loud squealing "er, er, er" noise which at first would go away once the dryer was going but lately it comes and goes so getting worse. Looks like the front felt seal is worn and drum is shiny where the felt seal is worn. Should one replace both the front and rear felt seals while the unit is apart? Anything else needing repair that could be causing this? Thanks.
For model number Maytag Neptune dryer
Hello Lyle, Thank you for your inquiry. We do recommend changing both the front and rear felt seals. You should also check the drum glides, belt and rollers. For more specific information, may we confirm the model number of your dryer? We look forward to hearing from you.

The Felt Gasket between drum and door ripped, vent manifold from Dryer to fan and lint screen broken
I pulled the bottom panel and the door panel to replace the manifold and felt gasket around the drum. I removed old gasket very easily, it peeled right off. I use brake cleaning fluid (Spray Can from Auto Zone about $1.45) to remove old glue. Used spray contact cement (Elmer's about 4.50 at Ace) and sprayed the panel and gasket surfaces and let dry. I then applied a 2nd coat and let get "tacky" and installed the gasket. You will need an extra set of hands to hold the gasket in place while you stretch it over the the panel. The vent manifold is held in place with 3 phillips screws and was installed in about 10 minutes. The only gripe I had was in the Parts-Select illustrated breakdown they don't tell you the lint screen comes with the manifold assembly, so I bought one of them too. Now have an extra lint screen

Drum Not spinning
First, I unplugged the dryer. Then I used a flat screw driver to pop the top open. I removed 2 bolts from the front cover and removed the front door cover. I also took pictures of the electrical connector on the door so I would remember how the wires went back on. Then I removed 4 bolts from the front drum guide and lint screen holder. This allowed me to remove the drum & old belt. While the drum was out, I pried an access panel open on the side of the dryer. I then glued the new back felt piece in place. I put the new belt around the drum and re installed it. I re-installed the front guide and front cover re-connecting the door electrical switch. With the access panel open, I attached the belt to the motor. I then plugged it back in and turned it on to verify operation pryor to snapping the top cover back in place. Very easy repair.

Dryer made marks, then noise, then more noise
Thanks to this website we were able to not only find the parts, but a video that told us how to take the dryer apart. Unfortunately, between the time we diagnosed the problem, ordered the parts, and they arrived, the drum had worn into the front bulkhead. We were able to file the sharp parts dull and install the brackets, felt pads, and drum glides along with the felt seal, but ended up breaking the dryer door switch. Once that came in, it has been working. I'm not sure how long the repair will last, but it was much better than buying a new one.

Dryer banging and clothes getting stuck between tub and felt pad while tumbling.
Very easy repair. I took off the bottom fromt panel with a nut driver. Then I took off the face/door panel. Take note of the wires that need to come off by marking them with a sharpie or tape. The top of the dryer can be stood up to allow access to the ductwork that has the felt pad on it. The felt pad was worn through in spots, the drum glide was completely gone and both cylinder glide brackets were almost completely worn through. I just replaced the brackets and the pads. The old felt came off fairly easily. I scraped the old glue for the felt off with a knife and cleaned and dried the surface before applying the hi temp adhesive. I waited 1 minute while the glue became tacky (be careful, the glue starts out thin and tends to run) and the felt pad was easily put back in place with my wife's help. Everything was very simple and it cost $87.00 for parts and shipping. I felt that this should be a good investment since I have had no other problems with this dryer and this is normal wear and tear. Better than paying $600+ for a new dryer. The video for changing the felt pad was very detailed and easy to follow as well.

Was not drying properly. Making a rubbing noise metal to metal sound.
First had to remove the front panel after lifting the top up on its hinges and supporting it. Diconnected wires to the front panel after marking them where they go. Saw where drum was rubbing above the impeller housing for the fan. Removed the drum slides and replaced them with new slides and brackets. Removed the belt and replaced it. It is a little tricky with the belt on the tensioner so pay close attention on how you remove it, it will make putting the new one on easier.Replaced the felt gasket with high temp glue. Cleaned inside and outside of cabinet. Put the panel back on,hooked up the wires and it looks and runs like new again.

Cylinder glide brackets broke, cylinder seal damage
After removing the front of the dryer, I took out the front assembly where the seal and glide brackets attatch. I replaced the bad cylinder glide by drilling the old rivets out and re-riveting the new glide in place from the back side. I then replaced the felt pads and glides on the glide brackets and glued a new cylinder seal around the front assembly. I reccomend having 4 hands for placing the cylinder seal around the assembly with fresh glue.

Dryer taking too long to dry
Determined that the 2 completely worn off front & rear drum seals were causing dryer to take too long to dry clothes.
Removed the front bottom panel first, then the middle panel and then the top panel. After removing the belt from the drum, it came out easily. Replaced both thermostats and fuse
just so they would be new in the unit.
Reglued the seals in place and waited til glue dried. Then reassembled everything back. Also lubricated the drum wheels. Everything worked and was quiet!
