Question about Kenmore 82822 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Duet dryer drum is loose, felt seal on back of drum does not sit tight. Can see light which it should be tight. Problem was created when someone helped me to raise it on top of the washer and they let it slip. It did not fall down but it was trouble raising it on top of the duet washer. My washroom is small so I have to have it stacked. I have taken it apart and put it back together. It is loose,.

You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

Hello there:
If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: 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.

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.

Whirlpool duet dryer mod gew922507pw1 lleaving brown streak on cothes


The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Clothes getting stuck in front of dryer the model wasn't listed below mode is LDE8404ACE


If your clothes are getting stuck in the front of the dryer, it could mean more than one thing.
Your front felt seal is faulty, broken, or out of position.
After years of use, the front felt seal on the dryers break down,come loose, or become faulty. It is also sometimes caused by wear in the drum rollers, and this causes the felt seal to become worn.
You will need to replace the front felt seal and possibly the drum rollers.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum, felt seal and belt. It is a good time to check and replace the felt seal. You could stop there but I recommend that you do the following:
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they are worn or have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them and is not worn, then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in.

You need to replace the 2 rear drum roller wheels and probably the rear drum felt seal. While you have it torn down inspect the front drum glides for wear.
This dryer is worth repairing.

Whirlpool duet dryer felt seal replacement


The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.
