The screws for the paddle can be accessed by removing the small back panel. If they are stripped out you will need a new paddle.

Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

MY Estate TGDX640JQ Gas Dryer PROBLEM IS AS FOLLOWS ALL THE CLOTHING GOT BLACK SPOTS ALL OVER (DOESNT COME OUT ) SOMEONE SAID ITS FROM THE DRUM! ANY ADVICE?


It could be your washer leaking oil into the tub
Check paddles inside dryer drum for looseness if something oily got under
the paddles it will leak onto the clothes
Check felt strip at the back (and front) of the tub if it came off it could transmit junk into your dryer
if this was helpful please rate me.

Paddle inside dryer came loose how do we tighten


You have to open up the dryer to expose the clothes drum. Most paddles are fastened by two or three 1/4" sheet metal screws. Look for your lost screw in the dryer or replace it with the same. Use a drop or two of lock-tite to keep screws in place. Good time also to clean out all lint which can become a fire hazard, replace the drum belt and redo all of the screws.

Dryer Paddle Loose


Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.
