Product Description

Front Lower Drum Seal Specifications

The front lower drum seal is used in the assembly of dryers. This seal helps keep your appliance running quietly. It allows the drum to smoothly rotate on the front panel. If you notice brown marks on your clothing, if the dry cycle is taking long, or if there are unusually loud noises, the seal might be worn down. If that is the case, you will need to replace the seal. This replacement part is made out of felt. The high temperature adhesive required to install this seal is sold separately. Before you begin any repair work, make sure the appliance has been unplugged.

The drum was squeaking and running slow
Removed drum replaced bearing with kit, replaced both front drum seals and drive belt. The only problem was when replacing the rear drum ball the three screw holes were poorly tapped and took several tries to get them in. The manufacturers could easily fix this problem. They could provide self tapping hex head screws instead of the Phillips head screws. Everything else went very smoothly.

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.

Clothes were getting stuck and burning in the gap between the dryer and the drum.
Opened up the dryer, scrapped off the old glide and seal. Applied adhesive as instructed. Glued on new seal and glide and reassembled dryer.

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.

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.

Thumping in drum in every revolution
I first watched the video. Had I not done that, I probably would have started looking for a new dryer. The repair is simple and I feel like now I could repair just about anything on the dryer.

I need to replace both: Upper Drum Glide part #PS470317 and Front Lower Drum Seal part #PS460194 on Kenmore Dryer. Upper Drum Glide comes with adhesive. Will this adhesive cover putting on both the glide top portion and the lower felt?
For model number 970C8004200
PartSelect logo
Hello Sergiy, thank you for your question. Yes, the High Temperature Adhesive 5308027429 should be enough to cover both the upper and lower felt pieces. We are pleased to have been able to help.

Regarding the scorching of clothes, isn't there a thermostat in the dryer that can be adjusted to either run the dryer hotter or cooler?
For model number FDE336RES2
PartSelect logo
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. The temperature on your dryer cannot be adjusted. For information on each dryer setting for your dryer, you will need to consult your owner's manual. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I'm getting scorch marks on clothing when using this dryer. Also, the metal rotating drum is very hot to touch. A dryer has to be hot to dry clothes, but is it normal that the inside of the drum, wherein the clothes are placed, is so hot that one could burn their finger if the metal was touched at the end of the drying cycle? It definitely isn't normal that clothes are being scorched! What part do i need to replace to fix this issue?
For model number FDE336RES2
PartSelect logo
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. If your dryer is getting too hot, your dryer may be running to hot because of a clogged vent. It may also be running too hot, if you are overloading the dryer. This can also lead to scorch marks on your clothes because the dryer cannot tumble properly and the clothes stay in contact with the heated drum. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
