Our cloths are snaging between the dryer door and the front wall on the handle side of the door (left side). There so stuck that they rip a hole in them when we free them.


Sounds like you front drum support / bearing is wearing out. When the support wears out, a gap occurs between the drum and drum support, That is where the clothes are getting caught, Does your dryer squeak when running? If so, then replace the front drum support / bearing. Cost about $35 - $40.

I have a GE DX4500EE1WW electric dryer. Over the weekend it stopped working. If you turn the start dial you can hear it hum so I know it's getting power but the drum won't turn. I've tried it on every...


MOST LIKELY A BAD MOTOR OR SOMETHING CAUGHT IN THE BLOWER WHEEL. UNPLUG UNIT, TAKE TOP PANEL OFF AND THEN FRONT PANEL. PULL THE DRUM AND BELT OUT AND LOOK INTO BLOWER HOUSING FOR RESTRICTION AND SEE IF YOU CAN TURN MOTOR BY HAND.

Clothes are getting caught and ripped in the top front part of the dryer. How can I keep this from happening?


You need to replace the drum seal it attaches to the body of the dryer and seals between the drum and the body. If your clothes are catching then replace this seal.
I hope this helps,

GE dryer, black grease stain on cloth


I have the same problem, I haven't resolved it but it seems to be due to the drum of the dryer being able to move more than it's supposed to and things getting caught in between the drum and whatever it sits in, at the front of the dryer. I have found things caught in there before and when I've pulled them out they had a brown/yellow grease stain on them. Other times something in the dryer will have this same stain - although no longer caught it seems it must have been caught at some point then became free again, with the stain. I'm thinking something is loose or if the drum is supported at the back by a bearing of some sort, this bearing may be worn down and the drum isn't sitting right.
