Sorry but the only answer to this is a new drum, possibly from the metal pile at the dump, or ask your local appliance guy if he keeps a parts pile out back, many do! Lastly is the terrible "New" drum. They are very easy to exchange. Take the front panel off the machine after unplugging it of course, and remove the two wire connectors from the door switch. It doesn't matter how you put them back on, it's just a loop switch.With the machine lying on it's back take a good look at the belt routing in particular at the bottom right hand corner and remember how it is wound around the drive wheel and the tensioner. then just remove the belt and slide the drum straight up and out.Also keep in mind which side of the belt goes against the drum(one side is ribbed). Take a few pix if you need, that always helped me. Thanks, Dana

Dryer is "eating" clothes; how do we fix it?


I suggest you find someone to "get inside" the machine drum and find out what is damaging the clothes. I could not find the machine in "Sears Parts" to look at the drum. (They have pictures for most all US machines). I am not sure the drum might not need to be removed to repair it. There should be something there that is "snagging" the clothes and could be sanded down or smoothed somehow. If it has removable "paddles" to tumble the clothes, sometimes one could come loose and need tightening. I have seen heavy objects like large tennis shoes loosen a paddle.
Be blessed.

Keep getting snags on sheer fabric clothes, what is it? Anyone with this problem?


If you are certain that the dryer is causing snags in delicates, check the drum for a foreign object (paper clips, safety pins, etc.,) that might be lodged in the drum. A loose screw or loose drum agitator (paddle) might cause this problem.

Sometimes a bad bearing or drum slide will cause a misalignment between the drum and the stationary part of the dryer's interior. This misalignment will pinch clothes and cause tears or black streaks.
