I recommend removing the rust with some emory cloth, priming the area with a metal primer such as rustoleum, and then painting the area with appliance paint to match.

O.k. If it does not have a lent trap where does the lent go ?


The lint will build up in your ventilation tube very rapidly and become a fire hazard. It will also get all over the wiring inside of your dryer and cause shorts. This will happen anyway but over a length of time. Bottom line...keep your lint trap in, clean it regularly, an stay on top of cleaning your vent line as well.

My dryer is heating fine but there is no air blowing out of the vent. Therefore, clothes are not drying properly. I have cleaned the lent filter, checked the outside and and inside vent for clogs or...


run the dryer with the vent hose off, if it drys correctly then it is in the vent tube. The best way to clean the vent hose is with a leaf blower, now if it is not drying with the vent hose off then you will need to disassemble the dryer, and clean from the bottom of the lint trap back to the back of the dryer with a brush(paint) and a vacuum:

Turned dryer on and 5 min later it stopped and will not turn back on


could be overheating, check lent trap first or it could be an internal clogg near exhaust vent located in back cover that need to be cleaned out. or it could be your thermal fuse located in back cover.

My maytag 3000 series dryer is not even a year old untill 2 more days, it does not dry my clothes no matter what setting I have it on the lent trap gets cleaned about 2 or 3 times during each cycle,yet it...


oooow,,,temper temper,,,,take a deep breath,,,
i think the temp censor has stoped working thats why its not getting very hot its that or the heating coil/s are broken,,also check the air vents at the back are not blocked up if so its not getting any air to it,,,
then go out and find a big stick,,,and batter it with the stick,,,
this realy wont help fix it,,but it will make you feel soooo much better?

My dryer is working, but it's not heating


pull the vent line off the back of dryer and see if it helps,also the duct that the lint filter slides into could be loaded with lint,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?sounds like from what you said when you had the top off it worked better because you had better air movement with the top off.go out side and check the vent,if it's a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,you also need to vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if you have a shop vac blow off the motor and blow through the inside vent to clean out the heating duct and vac out the back of the drum,you should take it apart and clean it out once a year so the dryer will run correctly

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.
