My frigidaire dryer snags clothing on the lint screen. How can I stop this?

Hello Vincent Jones, thank you for your inquiry!

From what you have described your clothing is getting snagged on the lint screen inside of your Frigidaire dryer. You may need to replace your lint screen and filter. I would make sure to check for any cracks or damages that could cause your clothes to get snagged. If you do not see any damage you may want to check the inside of the tub using an old towel or pair of hose to assure there is no internal damage. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux gas dryer snagging clothes

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux gas dryer, model# EIGD55HIW, is snagging and tearing your clothes. There is a possibility that the temperature is too high and you are overdrying your clothes. Make sure to dry your clothes on the correct temperatures and correct times. The other possibility is, the finish inside of your dryer has been scratched or chipped. This can cause a snagging or tearing of clothes. To prevent further scratching and chipping of the drum finish, make sure to always remove any foreign objects from pockets before laundering, as well as make sure zippers and fasteners are not hitting the inside of the drum. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Clothes getting stuck

check the top drum slides and tub bearing slide support. it is made of plastic and when it or the slides wear out the drum will drop down enough for clothes to start snagging

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.

Clothes get caught between the drum and the front of the inside nonmovable part of the dryer and we are getting snags of the clothing inside and ruining the clothes

there is suppose to be a felt type piece that goes on the drum to full that gap it may have fell off . its a struggle to put on unless the drum is accessible. you can pop the top of the machine off to get better access.

My kenmore washer#26922503 will not drain during the spin cycle and the cloths come out of the washer with a lot of water still in them. can you help me?

Sounds like there's been an obstruction on the hose to the pump. Sometimes a sock or other small article of clothing can be swept over the top of the inner perforated drum into the outer drum. The outer drum has about a 5/8" hose to deliver the waste water to the pump. Socks, etc can get stuck in the drum, blocking the drain hole to the hose, OR they sometimes can be sucked down into the pump...Check both . If it is in the outer drum you can fish a straightened coat hanger with a small hook bent on the end and try to snag the article of clothing. or if it is in the pump, you'll need to block the hose so the water won't dump out of the drum and remove the lower end of the hose and then use the coat hanger hook to pull the clothing out of the pump...messy and leaky job, but possible to do.. Also check the pump belt, you may have burned it and when it heats up it will stretch and won't drain when it's stretched..

Snaged clothes

Check the lint trap on the dryer. We had the same problem and it was because we put the lent trap in backwards.
