Question about Frigidaire FGQ332ES Gas Dryer
I had the same problem with zippers and socks. Solution was as simple as replacing the felt seal at the top of the dryer door.The drum rides on the felt seal that has plastic guides imbedded in it. It's function is to seal and more importantly act as a guide for the drum.
Check the drum at the front edge if the gap around it is not the same or if the drum is wobbley when you lift it by hand that is probably the problem.
You will need to open the dryer cabinet. Mine had 2 catch springs at the front top edges that were released by pressing with a thin flat object that will fit between the top and bottom cabinet(butter knife). Once the top can be lifted you may find a couple of screws that secure the front panel and door. Once removed the front panel can be popped off and lifted out (careful of door switch wires).At this point you csn see the felt at the top of the door . It is glued in place and is easily removed. your local appliance part supplier can supply you with a replacement that comes with the glue and installation instructions.
Put the dryer back together and no more burnt socks and ruined zippers.
