Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
The door pops open during the drying cycle. Won't stay shut to dry. Also, leaves "burn marks" on my clothes. My warranty has run out. last time they replaced the door and drum. The repair man said it was a fluke but should not happen again.. Until 3 months after the extended warranty ran out.
It is a Kenmore.
Check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.
