Question about Maytag MDE508DA Dryer
The clothes are getting stuck in the dryer and leaving "scorched" marks. Sometimes they aren't even't stuck but come out with "scorched" marks. Any suggestions on how I can fix the issue? The dryer is only 2 years old.

SOURCE: Brown marks on clothes
This is a pretty common problem with these Frigidaire dryers. Crice hit it right on the head when he said the clothing is getting stuck between the guides and drum. The upper and lower felt guides need to be changed. This is not one of the easiest jobs. The top and front panel have to come off and the guides are glued on with high temp. adhiesive. The old guides have to be scraped off. Part numbers for the upper and lower guides are 5303937139 -(upper) 5303283286 -(lower). Catriver...post back

the brown streaks and holes will be when they get stuck the dryer is still turning and it will be friction marks if it is getting stuck between the inner and outer drums than check to see if there is any wobble in the inner drum by opening the door and placing your hand at the top of the outer rim of the panel and place your fingers to the top of the inner drum pull your fingers towards your hand if there is any movement than the bearings are gone which will need replacing once done then this will eliminate the problem if there is no movement check to see if there is a seal missing from between the inner and outer drum u can find this out by checking with your fingers than calling the manufacturer to see if there is supposed to be one there

The 417 dryers have two seals on the front panel, the top seal has drum glides which wear down over time. Because the drum rests on those glides, when it wears down it leaves a gap between the drum and the seal, clothes will drag in that gap and come out with rust and/or seal adhesive stains. Try replacing the top and lower seals, this works most of the time...sometimes though, if left unattended long enough, the lack of support from the front glides causes too much strain on the rear drum bearing, and even after replacing the seals clothes may still catch, although the brown spotting will stop for awhile. You can feel the gap if you run your hand along the inside of the drum at the seal point.

nothing in the dryer i.e.crayon left in pocket?? there is no black grease used in the unit only White lithium style.. I dont think it came from the inside of the mach ...Best bet is to clean the tub out mild soap and a damp cloth it should go away. if not the peice maybe stuck in the baffles manually spin the drum do you hear anything rattling around?? Let me know

there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
