Question about Frigidaire FEQ332E Electric Dryer
When drying clothes they seem to get stuck somewhere in the drum and get scorched with a brown spot about a 1/4" wide and 1.5"s long. The dryer is 6 years old.
What is happening here, is that the front bering (the area between the front and the drum) has become worn. Its not a very expensive or time consuming job really. Remove the top, then remove the front. You will tilt down the front and door assembly. Dont worry about the drum falling out, Frigidaire uses a ball and hitch rear bering that will hold it in place. On the very top of the door opening indise the front cover (where the drum rides on that felt) you should see a felt like covering with like 4 or 5 plastic type drum glides. Replace the top half of this felt with those plastic glides attached (should be attached). Just re-glue the felt to the drum (glue should come with part, and watch it, this glue is for real if you get it on you). If you wanted to be a real explorer, its always a good idea the lube or grease the rear bering of these Frigidaire's while your this far into it. If you want to, just remove the belt (remembering how it went back on the idler pully), then, with two towels around your hands, grasp the drum at around the 10 o'clock position and tug upwards to remove the drum from the rear bering. Also be sure to remove the drum upper support (yellow looking clip thing front center that will hold the drum until you remove it). Use a good quality-high temp grease inside the bering and the ball on the back of the drum. This will ensure you wont have to go back in there again normally for the rest of your dryers lifetime. Enclosed a picture of the front bering glides and felt:
And a small break down of the front section. Your part will be #20 that you will be replacing.
Let me know if you need any further assistance or have any other concerns or needs. Good Luck!!!! Jim
