Question about Hotpoint NBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer
This dryer is leaving brown 1 to 2 inch streaks on my clothes and the clothes are often getting stuck at the top front part of the dryer. When I yank the clothes out, they have brown streaks and sometimes holes. I have read issues regarding drum guides, if this is the problem-how can I repair or replace? Help!
My dryer was doing the same thing (brown streaks and holes). I opened up the front by lifting the top first then remove the two screws on either side near the top, unhook the wires to the door sensor. Pull the front panel up and off of the metal clips on the bottom and set it on top of the dryer for easy cleaning. I had to replace both upper and lower felts, the upper has three what look
to be hard plastic tabs on it, both upper and lower together will cost anywhere from $50 to $60. Pull the old felts off and then clean the metal surface (I used a wire brush on a drill and it worked great). Carefully glue the new pieces into place with the adhesive that will come with the upper felt guide. Once in place let sit for an hour. Put the dryer back together. I did this to my Frigidaire that is ten yrs old and now it runs like new. Hope this is helpful.

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
