Frigidaire affinity front load dryer


You need an upper felt and a rear drum bearing. If you buy the felt make sure you get the special adhesive to install it. The squeal maybe part of this or it could be the rear drum bearing. You can learn how to replace the rear drum bearing here in the article I wrote. http://gomestic.com/do-it-yourself/how-to-replace-a-frigidaire-dryer-rear-drum-bearing/

Clothes getting stuck in front of dryer the model wasn't listed below mode is LDE8404ACE


If your clothes are getting stuck in the front of the dryer, it could mean more than one thing.
Your front felt seal is faulty, broken, or out of position.
After years of use, the front felt seal on the dryers break down,come loose, or become faulty. It is also sometimes caused by wear in the drum rollers, and this causes the felt seal to become worn.
You will need to replace the front felt seal and possibly the drum rollers.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console 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 dryer. This will expose the drum, felt seal and belt. It is a good time to check and replace the felt seal. You could stop there but I recommend that you do the following:
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they are worn or have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them and is not worn, then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

My dryer makes a scraping noise when the bowl


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

You may have two problems:
1...The felt seal around the door is faulty,broken, or out of place.This will cause the problem of zippers,buttons, etc. to get caught between the door and the drum
2...Drum rollers, this causes squeaks,and thump type of noises.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication and the felt seal between the door and drum maybe faulty.
If you have a front loading machine,
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 dryer. This will expose the drum and belt,and felt seal.
Check your felt seal at this time to see if you can reinstall it or you may have to replace it.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise and the problem of getting clothes caught in between the door and drum.

Replaced felt seal.now dryer drum rolls with a bump


Check the placement of your new felt seal to make sure nothing has shifted or has gotten out of place, if it is ok then your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.

We purchased part 280114 (rear drum seal) and we


Hi, If this a whirlpool make, The felt side gets the glue. The edge that is sown tight on the edge gets glued to the tub. Make sure that you do not push the seal to far unto the drum so the flap on the seal hangs against the edge of the drum.
I tried looking up your part # and it doesn't come up.5eff87c.jpg
If you look at the back side of this seal you will notice a threading closer to one side and not the other. The thread (felt side) closest to the edge is the one that gets glued to the drum.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.
