Black marks clothes


black marks on cloths usually occurs on older dryer when the felt liner that supports the drum, wears out or is torn, leaving a gap for cloths to get pulled into and between the drum-and drum support.
The replacement part (is not felt anylonger) but made of teflon and has self-sticking backing that goes on the front support after removing the old felt and glue. While you at it, order a new belt, that is most likely been slipping when the closes get jamed between the drum and support. Look up your model number on selectapart.com They aslo have tutorials so you can see how to install these items

Brown streaks and stains on white towels


check the drum on both ends to see if the felt wore down or ripped,when this happens your clothes can get into the space and causes the marks on your clothes,also check to see if anything is on the drum,door or back wall,anywhere that the clothes can touch as they spin in the dryer but most likely there's a worn out felt on the drum and clothes are slipping though the space

Felt seal on back part of drum whirlpool


Felt seal and glue

What I would do is take the dryer apart and remove the old drum seal. Get as much of the old glue off there and install new felt. I tuned upa dryer built like yours not long ago and took some photos.

Leather strip came off dryer. Now seeing shiny fibers on clothes. I'm wondering what the fibers are and if they are dangerous. Dryer is a kenmore from the 80s or90s


Hello,

The fibers are felt and theirself are not dangerous...however they were secured to that leather strap that came off and that leather strap and the felt fibers comprise the rear drum seal and now their is a gap in the drum because that felt seal has come off...with that felt seal off their is a great possibility of clothing falling through the gap and damaging the components of the dryer (and ruining your clothing)...it is highly reccomended that the felt seal is replaced on the dryer drum.

Leaves brown marks on clothes marks will wash out but when dried they are back on the clothes otherwise dryer works great


you have to replace the felt piece in the back where the drum rides on,the clothes are going through the gap where the felt has worn out and could be rubbing on the rollers or whatever the clothes are touching as they spin,if there's a felt piece on the front change that out too.

My dryer eats my clothes by twisting them up between the drum and door. is there an update to fix this?


the front of the drum rides on a felt pad. as the pad wears down it creates a gap for the clothes to get caught in. you just need to replace this felt. sometimes called front bearing sometimes called felt seal.

I get black streaks like the rest of you.. I


it's not the drum,it's the felt pieces that the drum rides on, there is felt on the back of drum and theres a felt piece on the front bulkhead, they could be worn leaving a space letting the clothing slip through hitting the black rollers or something is falling through the space hitting the clothes next time send the model number so i can look up your dryer,the model number is around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer,open the door and look around the opening and you'll see a tag with model and serial number

Frigidaire dryer gets clothes caught in between the drum, and body of dryer


Just did this today! The brown marks are the felt that is around the part that suspends the drum. It has probably been making a rubbing noise for awhile? The mechanism that supports the drum and allows it is spin is called a bushing This is no longer balancing the drum properly so it is rubbing against the felt and wearing the felt down. The brown marks are burnt felt rubbing off onto the clothes. Get a new bushing assembly and either a top and or bottom felt replacement kit. Replace all worn felt! The top felt has either two or three plastic gliders on it as well. It has been an all afternoon job for me. A second pair of hands is also helpful so long as you are not married to them! Good luck...(I paid $90.00 for a top felt, bottom felt, and a whole brand new bushing unit.)
