It seems that the "bucket' is out of alignment. it should be aligned straight and there is a protective seal around the bucket.if it is not aligned right, it will turn very slow or could even ruin your bushing or bearing at the back of the dryer.(besides catching on fire) Disconnect the dryer and remove the top and front. you will notice if the bucket is out of place. The reason it is probably not stopping is because the switch on the inside of the door is shorting and therefore ON all the time.it has 2 wires that click on the switch when you close the dryer door.

Why do my clothes get caught, burn, and tare in the dryer?


More than likely the front glides and felt have gone bad and wornb away. 1)The first thing you need to do is unplug the dryer.
2) You will need to pop the top of the dryer. This can be done with a flat screwdriver. Place the driver between the top and the front of the dryer and basically just pry upwards.
3)Now, that you can see inside the dryer, the next thing is to remove the front of the machine. At the upper left and right sides you will find a screw that holds the front to the frame of the dryer.Remove these screws and you can take the front off.
4) The glides and felt are located on the inside of the front

My dryer eats my clothes by twisting them up between the drum and door. is there an update to fix this?


the front of the drum rides on a felt pad. as the pad wears down it creates a gap for the clothes to get caught in. you just need to replace this felt. sometimes called front bearing sometimes called felt seal.

Underware gets in pump its likesomething missing


There should be a filter screen (usually white) before the pump assembly. It should be installed behind lower front panel.
Also you can buy a fabric net clothes bag for the washer to stop small thin fabric items from going into the filter assembly.

Check your inside seal between the door and the drum for tears. If it is torn it will need to be replaced.

I have the same dryer doing the same thing. Open the door and take the two screws out and lift the top. Remove the two screws that hold the front on. Remove the front. On mine both the plastic parts that stay on the front when it is removed are cracked and needing replaced. I found over 20 buttons that the dryer had pulled off clothes stuck in the front door. I'm sure if it will be cost effective to buy both these parts or not.

In dryers, the small clothes can get caught in one of the drum seals and make a scrapping noise, ( remove power, grab a flash light and have a peek inside through the door opening ) or the cloth can actually pass through one of the heating duct holes at the back of the drum and touch something electrical like the heating element, thermostats and so the noise comming.

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.
