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.

Coins get caught in dryer fins. Just recently paid $80 for the service call to remove coin. Seems to be a design flaw or recurring problem. What do I have to do, what kinds of tools do I have to have to...


Good day,
Foreign objects such as pins, needles, nails ect. can cause even more damage or disruption than coins.
Standard practice is to check all pockets before clothing is placed in laundry equipment. No manufacturer designs their equipment to handle items such as these and would not cover issues caused by them.

I have a stackable washer and dryer. Both have worked fine except recently clothes started getting caught between the drum and the front frame of the dryer. My husband pulled it apart checked the screws...


You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

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:)

Clothes getting caught on inside of dryer


There are a couple of guide wheels in the back of the dryer. when they get worn out the tub will have excessive play and will trap clothes inside. Just remove the front cover loosen the belt and remove the drum. the worn wheels will be easy to spot. It is an easy and cheap fix.
