Dryer putting black smears on clothes

I have a GE Profile Dryer that isonly a few years old. My clothes are coming out of it with black smudges on them. There is a plastic piece inside the drum on the front that looks like it has become brittle and is cracking. Do I need to order just the plastic piece for the inside of the drum or is there something else causing the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The white plastic pieces just inside the font of the drum are the front bearings there are aboutfour of these, you will need to take the front of the machine to put them in, your clothes are probably picking up black smeres from where the plastis bearings have worn.

Maytag gas dryer about 10 years old leaving black smudge marks on clothing. The wheel was hanging up on the dryer drum. Could there be other causes for the smudge marks?


your clothes are getting caught between the drum and the rim due to bearings out of the wheel guides. These guides are what the drum rests on when it is turning. Most dryers you can access these guides by taking the front off the dryer. Not a big expense just a little difficult to get to .

Hello Friend, This problem is real common in GE dryers. Your solution is simple. You need to replace the front drum bearing and glider pads. It's actually pretty simple to do. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. After removal just look at backside of dryer front around the inner door. You will see where the dryer drum has turned and wore a hole in the plastic piece above the dryer door. This piece is called the front drum bearing. Just unsnap this piece and snap in a new one. Be sure to replace the little plastic glide pads onto the top of the drum bearing before re-installing the dryer cabinet front. The front drum bearing and glider pads are sold seperately so make sure you have everything you need before you begin. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim. Thanks.
