Question about Dryers
I suppose you are right.
Seems like every year they put more and more shut-offs on them to stop lawsuits from dryer fires.
If I had this problem, I'd try 3 things.
1) I'd see if I could take a Dremel tool and sand down the edges of the piece of plastic to keep it from catching the clothes.
Is it plastic?
2) I'd go to a hardware store to see if they have some epoxy that can handle extreme heat and try to "feather" the edges with epoxy.
3) Call the manufacturer and ask them for their fix, you gotta know other people are having this problem.
I think that is a Whirlpool or a Kenmore/Sears machine, by your picture.

Make sure that the vents are cleaned to include outside. Where it hook on to the dryer make sure that the housing is cleaned also. That should take care of the problem. Thankyou and if you need more help let us know.

I would supect a faulty high limit thermostat. This small round device is mounted to a metal plate and attached to the internal ductwork. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. It should have none. Hope this helped and best wishes.

It is most likely the heating element will need to be replaced. You can test it first to make sure it is getting power that is constant

Thank you for your post, friend!
From what you are describing it sounds like the felt may have come off your Frigidaire dryer. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to come out and properly repair your appliance. This would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Broken wires at the ice maker or the temperature sensor falling out can cause that problem. Check your digital temperature readout at the top of the refrigerator with the doors open. If it reads 88 88 and has a flashing digit, check the ice maker temperature sensor for a cut or broken wire. The temperature sensor and rubbery gadget holding it in place often fall out of place when the drooping wires snag on the ice scoop or whatever. The sensor assembly is held in place by a wimpy plastic clip that breaks easily. Sometimes the wires get cut or broken when this happens.
After fixing this problem several times, I finally made a metal bracket from aluminum angle, drilled and tapped 4-40 holes in it, and drilled the plastic icemaker to mount it more permanently. I added a wire tie to hold the temperature sensor wire up and away from possible snag sources. The sensor wire and wire tie are not shown in the photo below, but if you have the tools to solder the wires and fabricate a bracket it helps a lot. It is easy to get the ice maker out, once you discover how to remove the drawer from the slides (two plastic clips at the rear of the slides).
Pull the front cover off, take out the two screws, and unplug the wire connector and it drops right out.

Bracket installed. The sensor is not shown in this photo, but the wire comes out the right side and crosses in front of the metal bracket. The wire tie holds it to the bracket near the top center (hole not shown).

If your washer has
developed a bad habit of snagging and/or tearing your clothes; before scrapping
your washer, try these few tips:
1) Check, by hand, the
smoothness of your washer. Look for any broken fins or roughness on the basket
surface. Replace, if necessary.
2) Reduce the size of your
loads. Heavy, cramped loads can cause a lot of friction which leads to tears.
3) Reduce the amount of
bleach used. Bleach can eat holes in clothing.
4) Verify water level is
not too low, especially during rinse cycle, where snags are more apt to occur.
5) Consider placing
delicates in a garment wash bag
6) Front load washers have
no center agitator, so they are less likely to tear clothes.
Please get back to us if
you have further query or else please accept the solution.
