How do I replace the plastic trim around the dryer door


You have to first remove the door assembly. Then the screws that hold that whole panel in should be obvious. I do not think you can replace just the seal, the whole panel has to be replaced. I included a link so you can see that assembly.

My dryer squeaks upon starting to dry a load of clothes...everything else works fine except it squeaks the whole entire time. Any advice?


GE dryers have a straight rod in the back center of the drum that goes through the rear bulk head and that is what supports the drum in the rear, it is also what squeaks when it gets warn out , around that short rod that goes into rear bulk head from the drum is a black Teflon plastic sleeve called a barring replace it and that will fix the noise

How do I replace the felt seal on a DVL223 clothes dryer?


There are usually some torxes screws underneath the top of the dryer. They need to be removed. Then there are a couple of bolts at the bottom, they normally don't have to be taken all the way out, just loosened. and there should be a couple of bolts inside for the front assemble...unplug the door switch, lift up on the door and just move it aside. Don't move the drum around too much since it shouldn't have to be removed...the felt is normally attached to the door is should be replaced the same way you remove the old one. A good time to look at the wear on your slippers, which are really plastic glides for the dum to run smoothly on, but they are right there, and if they need replaced, the job would be simple at this point and cheap.

The dryer squeals (metallic sound) while drying clothes.


check wear pads around front of drum or rear depending on brand. Ge's are particularly prone to scraping sounds, but still one of my preferred brands. IF a ge, did it get any dents around the sides or back? The drum is close to the sides and a dent in right place will do it. Also the rear panel can push the drum forward rubbing in front.
Ge - wear strips in front, plastic bearing in rear center, replace both, inexpensive.
Whirlpool- felt pad and wear strip in front, felt seal in rear with roller support. check rear seal lube rollers
Maytag -roller in front and rear with front and rear felt seals. some designs have front drum support posts with wear pads. ck these.
Frigidaire (include some sold under GE name) rear bearing cup (plastic)-lube, front feltpad with wear plates if plates gone get new pad/wearplate asm.
Maytag and ge nomenclature tags are in rear .

Clothes getting stuck in door seal when drying.


the plastic that you see overlapping the metal on the sides of the opening is in two parts, top and bottom, you can see the seem. the top is the smaller part, this plastic is also the drum support on the front. There are some glides on the top section that wear with time, after a few years they may need replacement. Perhaps these are worn out dropping the drum creating an uneven gap and catching. there is also a felt strip in there between the front of the dryer and the drum, keeping it back.
To view this remove the top by removing the 2 screws inside upper door opening holding top down. then lift top and if plastic console slide to left then pull away, metal -just pull straight. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet sides. pull front forward. glides are visible on top. if not there or worn thru plastic replace upper plastic support

How do i put the belt back on


Unplug dryer, then pry the front left and right corners of the top up and try not to scratch the paint. Tilt the top back to the wall behind dryer. unplug door switch and remove sheet metal screws from inside of front. Then as pulling the front away from drum reach inside door with one hand and lift the drum up slightly as to relieve the weight of the front of drum up off of the plastic slides that serve as a resting place and friction guide for drum. Then again lift drum slightly and slide belt back around the drum, put front and top back on after deciding if you can feed the belt around motor pulley and spring loaded idler pulley from above or a square door in bacl of dryer. There are a lot of ways the idler pulley has the belt fed through. But I think you will make it ok, Let me know, Sea Breeze

NVLR333ETOWB HOTPOINT DRYER EATING CLOTHES


I have the same dryer doing the same thing. Open the door and take the two screws out and lift the top. Remove the two screws that hold the front on. Remove the front. On mine both the plastic parts that stay on the front when it is removed are cracked and needing replaced. I found over 20 buttons that the dryer had pulled off clothes stuck in the front door. I'm sure if it will be cost effective to buy both these parts or not.

Dryer overheating but not drying clothes!


Check the complete venting system, the lint collector may be clean, but what about the vent outside?
