Question about Electrolux Kenmore 5.8 cu. ft. Super Capacity Electric Dryer
I have a Kenmore front loading super capacity dryer. I bought it about a year ago. This problem has been ongoing off and on depending on what clothes I have in the dryer. It seems there is a little opening around the rim of the barrel that drawstrings, zippers or similar small parts of the clothes can get stuck in. it twists the clothes around where it finally starts making a thump-thump sound which alerts us to the problem. We then have to carefully remove whatever is stuck and then everything is back to normal. Is this a design flaw or is it only my dryer doing this? Thanks for any help you can give me!
If your clothes get stuck, marked or torn in your dryer, check these:
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.
Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.
Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.
Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.
