Dryer Leaving Burn Marks On Clothes

I have a Figidaire stackable washer/dryer(gas)Recently I have had 2 problems with it.(1)A article of clothing will get caught on the inside while running and stop the dryer and leave a burn mark(2)Some clothing has burn marks when taken out of the dryer.
This is getting to be costly to my clothing budget and I am also afraid its going to start a fire.

MY FRIGIDAIRE ELECTRIC DRYER IS LEAVING BURN MARKS ON CLOTHES,WHAT IS CAUSING PROBLEM


Assuming that you have the correct temperature selected for your clothes, there are two likely causes:

If the clothes are showing randomly shaped burn marks, the dryer is overheating. This would be accompanied by a burnt smell on the clothes. The high limit thermostat is the culprit.

If the burn marks are dark streaks, the clothes are getting pinched between the drum and the inside of the dryer that does not move. This is caused by worn bearings, slides or rollers. Should you choose to repair this yourself, there is a great deal on a kit with all of the parts you need plus a new belt for only $32 here:

Whirlpool Duet dryer - "burn marks", "out of round" drum


It's not really BURN marks - it is the adhesive used to affix the felt. You can substitute for silicone to remedy this problem.

The dryer is squealing and leaving burn marks on the clothes


Squeak is caused by a worn out roller rolling metal to metal - Most dryers have rollers, felts and drum slides to balance drum rotation:
When rollers wear off, black powder leaks to rear felts and black marks are left on clothes.
Same thing happens when drum slides wear off (black marks are left on clothes)

Parts of clothes get stuck in edge of dryer...seems to burn them.


I have had this same problem with my stack-able dryer. It was leaving small burns on my kids clothes and my good sheets. My dryer has a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer can get caught and scorched or torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. My seal was worn out, so I needed to replace it. I had someone come in and do the work the first time but when it wore out again I just order the part and replaced it myself. It is fixable:)
