Most likely, one or more of the roller wheels is broken. to take apart most dryers, first take out 2 screws on the bottom of the front of the dryer. that should allow you to remove the bottom panel and allow you to get to 2 more screws that will remove the front panel and door. from here, you should be able to look under the drum with a flashlight and see what is going wrong. if you do need to replace one of the roller wheels, you might as well replace them both, they are cheap enough. you need to replace the wheel and the roller bearing that goes in the middle of it. using the model number of your dryer, you should be able to find replacement parts cheap enough online.
let me know how it goes!

Frigidaire Gallery dryer Model FSG447GHSO. Clothes and dryer sheets get caught between the drum and one of the three "bumps" inside the drum, causing burn marks on clothing. I can see the gap where it


There is a gasket that fits around the back side of the tumbler. Sounds like it needs replacing. It's job is to keep clothes inside the tumbler.

My clothes are being ruined in the dryer..I have the DCVH515 frontload model...clothes getting caught inside..i think some kind of seal from the inside around the door opening is gone..clothes are getting...


I have had the same problem for about 6 months. I have been sticking duct tape on the inside over where my clothes were getting hung/caught. It works :) but the heat makes the duct tape peel off so you have to keep replacing it. We finally had to call a repairman when the drum started making a horrible noise. He came out this morning and said one of the "sliders" the drum rolls on had broken. He said when the sliders begin cracking it can make a very slight gap where the clothes were getting caught. I have run 3 loads this morning and had only one dishtowel get hung whereas before multiple items in each load were doing it. He said there are multiple sliders so it may happen again.

He also said the clothes getting hung was an indication of a breaking slider so you may want to call a repairman to head off your drum doing what mine did. It cost me a total of $105 and I live in SE Texas.

We have a Maytag Electric Dryer, Model LDE512 , which leaves black marks on clothes while drying them. The dryer is about 18 yrs. old and has been working great except for this one problem. We have...


HI The drum is mostly stainless steel; The end that contacts the drum guide is just painted steel. After years of rubbing, some rust can form after the paint wears away,thus, causing the stain. Painting the bare metal (after removing all rust) and replacing the tumbler bearings,roller and roller shafts, will correct this issue and prevent it form happening in the future. You should also replace the tumbler seal while the unit is disassembled. Part numbers are below:

Tumbler bearings/Glides(You need two)- 306508
Roller - 12001541
Roller shaft - 6-3129480
Tumbler seal - 314820
Roller Shaft washer - 312535
Retaining Ring(shaft)- 410233

Clothes get caught between the drum and the front of the inside nonmovable part of the dryer and we are getting snags of the clothing inside and ruining the clothes


there is suppose to be a felt type piece that goes on the drum to full that gap it may have fell off . its a struggle to put on unless the drum is accessible. you can pop the top of the machine off to get better access.

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...


Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
