Hi there,

the scraping could be the tumbler itself. please check the belt around the tumber and make sure that it's not worn.

thanks

Dryer drum is scraping something and black deposits are turning up on our clothes


Well there are two parts to the drum, there is the bearing in the back and the felt pads in the front which the drum rides on. There is also a belt, but if something is scraping it would not be that. Is sounds as though the cover on the felts has worn off and your getting felt material on your clothes, so those need to be replaced. You need to get the proper felts for your dryer than you need to look for any screws on your dryer casing that will allow you to remove the casing and get to the drum, as the pads are underneath the drum. (Note: Inside the door there may be screws on the underside of the upper deck, and the deck should tilt backward on hinges)

My dryer squeeks when running


Hi, I've had a similar problem (I think) on my MDG7400 dryer. There was a cyclical squeak, metal against metal. It turned out to be the screw that holds the drum paddle to the drum. It had worked itself loose and was scraping against the inside wall of the dryer. Remove the front door lift the top, and tighten 'er up. Hope that helps.

Loud scraping sound


If it was put on a dolly from the back or dropped on the bottom the blower housing could be in contact with the drum as it goes around.
