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.

Maytag Neptune Dryer Not Drying Well, Leaves Brown Marks on Clothing. Seems like there may be multiple problems. Suggestions?


Sounds to me like an air-flow problem. Poor air-flow means dryer gets hot and scorches clothes but there is nowhere for the wet air to go, so it doesn't dry well. Check for lint-clogged ducting from the back of the dryer to the outside (or at least check both ends of the duct). Also check for a collapsed or clogged flexible tube that goes from the dryer to the duct work.
An over-heated dryer could also have warped the (usually) plastic lint filter.

Usually, if you are getting brown streaks or marks on clothing, one or both of the drum seals are going bad. Clothing will drag between the bulkhead and the drum, leaving brown marks. If you want to do the repair yourself, I can provide instructions, otherwise call for service.

Clothes burnt?


Try turning down the heat setting on your dryer. This should help immensely. Dry these types of clothing on say "medium" setting and the heavier things on normal heat.

bad rollers could be making black dust but the real problem is the tumblers seals letting the roller dust get into the tumblers and on to you clothes.

Black or brown makers are from the faulty or damaged tumblers seals you have one in the frount and one back...

I can help you strp by step if you want to do it yourself.
