Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

Black lint on white clothes after wash. have cleaned filter. is a front loader.


Check both the apron, located in front of the drum for lint residue, as well as the drum itself for sharp points (gouges) which may have snagged clothes and collected the lint to the inner side of the drum. Also try running a full cycle with no load to clear any lint which may remain in the outer (non visible) drum.

I am having a problem with my Ge dryer catching my clothes somewhere in the front by the top of the door it rips the clothes when trying to get them free can you help


it may be snagging clothes on a sharp edge or flashing on the plastic light assembly overhead of the door. you might just need to take a small piece of fine sandpaper and remove the burr or sharp edge thats snagging stuff..

also one or both of the rollers in the front may be worn, allowing the drum to bear down on the seal more, opening a gap at the bottom to grab your clothes then pulling them around with it, you just happen to catch it when its stopped and sitting still just hanging there.. while u have it apart u might as well check the rest of the rotating parts out for wear, etc and replace while you have it opened up..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Holes in Shirts from LG Front Load Washer


This may sound weird but try using a slower spin speed.  The reason is because the faster the spin speed is, the more the clothes can get sucked through the holes in the drum.  On the other side of the drum that you don't see could be some metal points that can snag the material.  When you pull the clothes out, you will pull the thread that comes entangled with those metal points.
