Unplug the dryer.
Remove the lint filter.
Remove the screws at the lint filter opening.
Pop the lid clips on the left and right front corners of the cabinet.
Rotate the drum counterclockwise until a tumble vane(paddle) is at the 12 o'clock position.
Tighten the screws going through the drum.
Repeat this for the other 2 vanes.
Re-assemble the dryer.

I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer that is configured a little differently so I thought I would share the solution (only slightly different from the above. My dryer does not have the lint filter on top, it is at the bottom of the opening in the front (When the door is open)

1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Remove the 4 screws behind the control panel. Removing these will allow you to pop up the top.
3. Pull the lid forward and lift up to open. The controls are connected via wiring harness in the left rear so you cannot totally remove it, just tilt it up. I braced mine open with a small wooden stick so I could access the drum.
4. Rotate the drum until a tumble vane (paddle) is at the top.
5. There are 3 screws for each vane. Tighten the screws going through the drum.
You might want to remove them and clean them out before tightening them. I found lint and some lose change that was banging around inside the vane.
6. Repeat this for the other 2 vanes.
7. Re-assemble the dryer.

Got a Kenmore Elite dryer. Some form of fabric/felt gasket has come off from the gap between the spinning basket and the dryer body. Gasket seems usuable.

That is called a drum seal and it has worn out. you can buy a new 1 at a reasonable cost and it comes with the glue to hold it in place. Not a bad job to replace but you will have to stretch it a little bit to make it fit. I suggest get it ready so it will fit on before using the glue being the glue sets up quick.

Brown marks are appearing on clothes after drying. These are not burn marks but rather something that is coming from inside the dryer.

I have the same problem. I have wiped the dryer several time with soap and water. I only found that it might be the glue on the felt gasket??? Dunno...

Error code F44 on sears kenmore elite oasis electric dryer.Doesn't seem to be cycling completely.

The F44 error code on this type of dryer indicates a blower motor control board failure. Since it happens only occasionally, then you could have a loose wiring connection or a partial obstruction in the blower housing. Complete details of the troubleshooting for this error code are included in this link of a previous answer: What does the fault code F44 indicate on my Kenmore Elite Oasis dryer?

I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the wire harness connections if you are confident that you can safely access the internal dryer components. If you find a loose connection, then tightening it or plugging the harness securely into the connection will likely correct this problem.

What does the code f70 on a kenmore elite dryer mean?

F70 is a "communications error" message and the first thing to check is loose wire connections.

If a loose connection is not found, the controller board will probably need to be replaced.

Please report back here what you find, OK?

Hi! juysu
Please check the power cord, by checking if there is 240V on the power terminals inside the back of the machine where the power cord is connected.

Kenmore elite

It should just mean "Power Failure". Restart your dryer. Does your house loose power a lot? Or just the dryer. Check your power to the dryer.
