Clothes stuck in drum


You might have a drum glide, felt piece, that has come off or unaligned itself from the drum. Contact Frigidaire for one and replace it. You have too much of a gap in the front and that is why your clothing material gets caught.

Clothes get stuck between dryer and barrel


If your clothes get stuck, marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Frigidaire crown series dryer


The back of the drum has a hub (a flat steel piece with a shaft and ball) which allows the drum to turn. That ball rides in a plastic "cradle". Unfortunately on the crown series...if the ball and cradle are not greased regularly, the plastic wears. This allows the drum to "sag". The front end of the drum is lower than the back. You can confirm this by running your finger around the front of the drum. You'll notice that the top of the drum is almost flush with the body of the dryer and the bottom of the drum is 3/4 of an inch lower that the the body. This allows clothes to slip into the gap at the bottom and then they are spen to the top pof the drum were the lodge between the body and the top of the drum. The turning drum burns the clothing. Replace the plastic piece that the hub rides in.

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
