Collar points go into dryer clean and come out stained

The fiber gasket at edge of drum is dirty. The collar points on shirts which go into the dryer clean, come out stained dark orangy brown. I have tried to clean the gasket with various cleaning products and have removed some orange stain but it is still there.

How do I solve this problem?

The rollers, guides, or wheels that are used to support the clothes drum may be worn out. When this happens, it may cause the drum to drop down slightly in the front or rear. Clothes can get caught between the front or rear of the drum and the dryer interior. This can cause clothing to have marks and/or tears. Check out the rollers, guides, and wheels for excessive wear or damage. Sure hope this helped ya!

What is turning


Could be a couple of things.

If you are sewing a new collar, turning is done after you've sewn three edges together and then you turn the item so the right sides are out and the raw seams are enclosed inside the collar. Then the collar is attached to the garment using the fourth (unsewn) edge.

How to Sew Collar Points Melly Sews

Or turning on an old, worn garment is when the collar or cuff is unstitched from the shirt and then flipping it over so the worn part is on the underside and the fresh, clean part is facing up (as against the neck edge or, in the case of a cuff, against the arm). This is an idea from the depression era when people wanted to get more use out of an item that was showing wear.

How to change mazzer luigi srl "major" blades


Start by closing the hopper and grinding all the beans through the unit. Remove the hopper and look for any lock screws on the top of the adjustment collar (or ring). Remove the screws if present and turn the adjustment collar clock-wise (coarser) until it comes off. Pull out the upper burr holder. You then need to take out the three screws that hold on each burr (blades) and remove them. Then you want to use a shop vac to clean out all of the grounds. Make sure there is no coffee on the burr holders that could cause the new burrs to not be level. Assemble the new burrs on to the holders. Take a dry towel and clean the threads of the collar and the threads inside the mill. You don't want any coffee grounds on the threads, that could cause the adjustment collar to lock up and may damage the threads which can be extremely expensive. Use a small amount of lithium grease on the threads and reassemble. Screw the adjustment collar all the way down to where the burrs are touching. Then back it up 1.5 numbers (12-14 little bumps on the outer edge of the collar). This is a good "starting point". Pull some shots and adjust as needed.

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.

Drum starts but does not continue


You have one of two possible problems. 1. The run winding in the motor, or wiring to it in the motor switch is bad. = get a new motor. Or, more likely: 2. The internal centrifical switch in the motor is not moving back into the non-running position. (this results in only the start winding being energized when start switch is used.) Usually = get a new motor, but you can try to lube it up and get it moving again. You will have to open dryer top to be able to take dryer front off, then remove belt so you can remove the drum to get to the motor. Look inside the motor near the belt end. There is a collar on the motor shaft with springs on two sides of it. That collar needs to be free to move back and forth. (only about a 1/2 inch or less) Sometimes a bit of spray lube and a little manual moving of the collar is enough to free it up and save you the cost of a motor.
NOTE: Do NOT try to run dryer with using only the start switch held. You will burn out the start winding.

Stains on clothes


Check the fit of the agitator to the bottom of the drum. After this many years, it may have warped up to make a gap. Run a rag around the joint to see if it marks.

I want to know how to remove the lint trap (not just the screen but the entire assembly) from a Maytag Performa PYET344AZW front loading electric dryer. The lint screen will not even properly slide back...


Besides drying clothes, dryers also remove lint. This fine, fuzzy material can cause trouble because it blocks dryer lint traps, clogs vents, and fills blowers. Lint can also gather around and in the tracks of the drum rollers, or in and under the pulleys and the drive belt. The result is poor clothes drying or -- sometimes -- no drying. To avoid lint problems, clean out the dryer's lint trap system every time you use the dryer.
To clean the lint screen, remove it from the unit. The screen may be located near or under the door sill, or in the top of the dryer near the control panel. It can usually be removed by pulling it up and out of its housing. Remove the accumulated lint to clear the screen; then replace the screen.
The exhaust vent also collects lint. Vent maintenance involves cleaning the lint from a screen in the dryer's vent exhaust collar and/or at the end of the exhaust vent where it sticks out through a basement window or through an exterior wall. To clean the screen, remove the clamp that holds the vent to the collar, or back out the screws that hold the vent to the collar, or pull the vent straight off an extended collar. Clean the screen thoroughly and replace it in the vent assembly.
To clean the vent itself, use a vent-cleaning brush (available at hardware stores) to pull out any lint deposits. Also check the vent run to make sure that the vent piping or tubing isn't loose at the joints, or -- in the case of flexible plastic venting -- isn't sagging between hanging brackets. Breaks or sags cause undue strain on the dryer's blower system, and can cause drying problems. If the vent pipe or tubing has become clogged with lint, remove the lint by pushing a garden hose or a drain-and-trap auger through the vent to a convenient joint. Disassemble the joint to remove the debris. With this procedure, it isn't necessary to disassemble the entire vent to find the blockage.You can head off problems before they become too serious by providing routine maintenance for your dryer's door gasket, thermostat, timer, and other frequently used parts. Let's discuss how to service these important components in the next section.

Maytag electric dryer makes noise from heating compartment--sounds like fan blades maybe hitting something?


I don't know that I can help you in any way other than to say that you are probably right. But some times the blower wheels do come loose and spin somewhat freely on the shaft and make a similar noise. But when that happens, you will usually notice a vibrating sound right after the drum stops spinning. Because the blower wheel continues to spin for a second or two. But I have seen, popsicle sticks, jewelry, bobby pins,those plastic white things that are under the collar in shirts and all sorts of other things in those blower wheels making noise.

Good luck
