Clothes stuck in drum


You might have a drum glide, felt piece, that has come off or unaligned itself from the drum. Contact Frigidaire for one and replace it. You have too much of a gap in the front and that is why your clothing material gets caught.

We have a problem with our frigidaire dryer FEQB4000FS0 snaps, zippers and buttons are getting caught in the gap between ther inside of the dryer and the drum, as a result all the clothes are getting...


Sounds like the felt seal is missing,shifted, or broken.
The felt seal is what keeps the zippers,buttons,etc from catching in the door and causing problems.
If you plan to do the repairs yourself, then make sure you unplug the dryer before starting any repairs.
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum and felt seal.
You can now inspect the seal to see if it is faulty. Replace it if it is needed.
If you remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Frigidaire FSE446RHS2 electric dryer makes bumping noise when drying. Opened the top, belt is ok.


Rear bearing and drum coupler needs to be replaced
bearing kit part #WC5303281153 is available online from many parts stores. You may want to replace the belt at the same time while you have the unit apart. Also inspect the front upper drum felt if it is worn replace it. The whole repair time for me was about 45 minutes dryer now runs like new.

Dryer thumps when running, clothes get stuck...


It always helps if you list the brand and model number in your post. I would look at the seam on the drum to see if the weld has cracked. (right at the front and / or rear of the seam.)

Frigidaire Dryer. Clothes are damaged by either being ripped when caught on dryer drum. Clothes also are marked with hard to remove rub marks.


Open the dryer door. Reach in just inside and feel for the felt seal that goes all of the way around the drum. The culprit is usually the top portion of the seal which supports the end of the drum near the door is worn out. This allows the drum to tip down and leaves a gap at the bottom. Clothes get caught in this gap and get rubbed and marked or rubbed clear through. Remove the front of the dryer and replace the seal. On some models the top 1/3 is replaceable. This portion carries the weight of the drum and is what wears out.

Clothes get stuck between dryer and barrel


If your clothes get stuck, marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

My dryer is destroying my clothes,


There is a gap between the lip of the drum, and the dryer housing. Usually the gap is not large enough for clothes to get caught up..
I think the drum should be removed, and the drum bearings checked for excessive wear. This can cause it. There are like 6 rubbing blocks at the front, that the lip of the dryer runs on. This is what I mean by bearings. There will also be a single drum bearing at the back of the drum, check this also for wear or damage.
Hope this helps.

Clothes keep catching in front ring area


>>A repair man replaced the plastic ring but the gap is still there, ruining several items per load. Is it repairable or a fatal defect?<<

The repairman should check the drum rollers, the guides, and the baffles to be sure the dryer drum is rolling true (round). Also, the replaced ring should be re-checked to be sure it's installed correctly.
