Straps, some satin night garments get caught inbetween drum

I have had to pull things out of the opening between the drum and the front of the dryer. It takes such a hold that it has actually torn the item. I has happened with one of my grandauhters little tee shirts, no straps on it. Also to one my night garments that is satin and it tore a hole in it as well. This dryer has ruined several items of clothing.

    LEQ2152ES0 - The dryer is just a little over a year old. It has done this from the beginning. I saw other post that have had the same thing happen with their dryers.

The back of dryer drum rubs on the gas diffuser lip


You did get the right replacement bearing assembly; did you also replace the bearing retainer and ground strap to the gas diffuser?
I'm sure you followed the repair procedures as described in this video http://youtu.be/MPXu-Ya8CBY
And if you did double check everything I suggested- then the next thing I would have to ask, is the noise you are hearing only happening when the dryer is full of clothes or does it also occur when the drum is empty?
If the noise occurs only when the dryer has clothes in it, you may be overloading the dryer.
If the dryer is making the noise whether the drum is loaded or unloaded, then the next logical step is to check for level.
Place a carpenter's level on top of the dryer; check it side to side; and front to back; adjust the leveling legs if necessary.
From my experience, a scraping sound could be caused by metal or hard plastic objects getting caught between the cabinet and front seal of the drum. And you already had it apart to replace the front bearing and slides; and I'm sure you inspected the diffuser for any damage or being out of round when you installed the rear bearing...at this point, predicated you did replace the bearing retainer and ground strap- the only 3 things you didn't replace is the gas diffuser, the drum, and diffuser- not to suggest that you do :) Please keep me posted. Best regards.

I have a frigidaire gallery series dryer, model number GLEQ2152ES1. It is approximately 2.5-3 years old. It is a front loader. During the normal cycle (the only one I ever really use), things always get...


Party *****. Sorry, I couldn't resist. It sounds as though your machine has been moved and something has become loose inside or is not properly aligned causing the drum to separate from the seal. If you open the door and feel with your fingers just inside and behind the door area around the complete circumference of the drum you will feel a rubber of fiber gasket or seal. If that seal has become damaged or pulled away from the frame that is what is causing your problem. Does the dryer make any unusual noises that you may have recently noticed? If so it could be that the support bearings that the drum ride on are damaged and may need to be replaced. If that is the case there is no need to buy a new dryer. If you feel confident in doing the repair yourself it's a little complicated but can be done with simple tools. If not then you may want to consult your local yellow pages for a reputable appliance repair person to complete the repair for you. Please be careful as there are a lot of fly by nights out there who will cause you more harm than good.

Squeaky when used and the edges or strings on garments get caught on the front part of dryer and either ruin the garment or break the string Do i need a new dryer?


There are several drum slides mounted on the front tub bearing (shroud). When these slides wear out the tub can drop down just enough to cause garments to get hung. If you catch it early enough you can just replace the slides. If not you may have to replace the front bearing as well.

You can tell by removing the top of the machine. There are normally 2 to 4 screws holding the top on. open the door and look up to the top and you will see the screws to remove and then take the top off and look at the front of the dryer where the tub rests on the top of the slides and bearings. you can look at it and tell if it is wore out. slides are 316 and front tub bearing is 313 on the illustration.

there should have been a plastic gaurd on the lint catcher inside to keep this from happening, at anytime when taking your clothes out did you find something you might have though how did that get in there> could have been it, or look under the dryer and see if it made it's way out past the drum to the floor

My clothes are getting caught in my dryer.


I am having this same problem with my GE dryer. I found a post on fixitnow.com from a guy that has repaired these for years. He says it is the rear drum bearing. Looks like a pretty easy fix, I am going to try to do it myself. If you try this, I have also read that you should spend the extra $10 to go ahead and replace the drums front felt glide kit.

Torn clothes


If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
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.

GE dryer, black grease stain on cloth


I have the same problem, I haven't resolved it but it seems to be due to the drum of the dryer being able to move more than it's supposed to and things getting caught in between the drum and whatever it sits in, at the front of the dryer. I have found things caught in there before and when I've pulled them out they had a brown/yellow grease stain on them. Other times something in the dryer will have this same stain - although no longer caught it seems it must have been caught at some point then became free again, with the stain. I'm thinking something is loose or if the drum is supported at the back by a bearing of some sort, this bearing may be worn down and the drum isn't sitting right.
