If you are using LP gas make sure the dryer is set to LP on the regulator. If a natural gas dryer is run on LP you will get way to much flame.

it's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.

SOURCE: Burn marks on clothing

The front felt drum seal may be bad. It is attached to the front panel, around the door.
Check and or replace the rear drum support it has worn down the ball and cup support. It will soon begin making a grinding/squealing noise.
When it wears and drops down the gap is greater at the front around the felt seal. Laundry gets caught in the gap and scorches.

UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

You may have two problems:
1...The felt seal around the door is faulty,broken, or out of place.This will cause the problem of zippers,buttons, etc. to get caught between the door and the drum
2...Drum rollers, this causes squeaks,and thump type of noises.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication and the felt seal between the door and drum maybe faulty.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box 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 and belt,and felt seal.
Check your felt seal at this time to see if you can reinstall it or you may have to replace it.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't 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. This should solve your noise and the problem of getting clothes caught in between the door and drum.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

I have a stackable kenmore washer dryer heavy duty extra large capacity 2 speed motor. The dryer has been making squeeling noise and has stopped toumbling around what can the problem be.


Could be the belt which connects motor and dryer drum. Could be the drum support rollers. Replace both either way -- common problem.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Stackable that has a screechy dryer


Sounds like it is worn out. Get a parts diagram and take it apart and see what parts are missing or worn out. The belt is probably coming apart and that is the black stuff. There are several plastic wear plates and a bearing/bushing for the drum, plus the belt idler and all these can wear out. The motor could also have a bad bushing in it but more than likely that will require a new motor as they don't usually sell just the bushing or end caps.

Frigidaire combo washer/dryer screws inside come off


The drum shaft came loose from drum. You can YouTube it for procedure of disassembly of dryer. Remount shaft, if screws are bad may need new shaft with screws, make sure it is tight to drum. While you have it apart you can clean out lint.

GE DSXH436V1WW heavy duty large cloths get caught


This dryer doesn't have rollers at the front of the drum, it uses a felt rub strip between the drum and the front cover. You'll need to replace the rub strip. It's easy to do but you'll need to get the special high-temp adhesive.
