    Clothes get stuck in the dryer in the three things inside the dryer drum that tumble the clothes, leaving rust stains on clothing - ruining the clothes. This set was purchased the summer of 1999. This has been happening at least a year now.

    I have the same "eating" issue where clothes get stuck and leave almost a burn on the clothes.  Does anyone have an idea about how to fix this?  Is it some type of tension issue that can be fixed?  Help....!

    Same problem of stained clothes caused by felt along drum. Is it difficult to replace the felt?

  • Anonymous Nov 13, 2008

    I purchased washer and dryer 2 yrs ago. The clothes have been getting stuck in dryer since then. I've had at least 6 service calls, all they can do is remove the jammed item that is stuck in the inner rim.

    I've had about 50 pieces of clothing damage especially baby onesis and any spaghetti straps. Terrible dryer save your money it's a piece of junk

    I have the same problem with clothing getting stuck and nasty burn-like or rust looking streaks - ruined a lot of clothing over the past year... now the heat setting and timer have died and the buzzer only turns off when I flip the breaker off.... yes, time for a new dryer - but the burn like - rust looking type stains didn't start until after 2 years of pretty heavy use... I'm glad it's finally dead!

The back of the drum has a hub (a flat steel piece with a shaft and ball) which allows the drum to turn. That ball rides in a plastic "cradle". Unfortunately on the crown series...if the ball and cradle are not greased regularly, the plastic wears. This allows the drum to "sag". The front end of the drum is lower than the back. You can confirm this by running your finger around the front of the drum. You'll notice that the top of the drum is almost flush with the body of the dryer and the bottom of the drum is 3/4 of an inch lower that the the body. This allows clothes to slip into the gap at the bottom and then they are spen to the top pof the drum were the lodge between the body and the top of the drum. The turning drum burns the clothing. Replace the plastic piece that the hub rides in.

Take the front of the dryer off (door and front panel). Replace the felt piece that has burned off. Too big a load causes the problem. The felt pieces cost about $14 each. There are 2 of them but usually only one is damaged. Get the model number off the dryer and look up the part. Then glue and clamp the felt on after removing any glue from the old felt. This happened on my Frigidaire and a friend's Westinghouse.

There is a gasket that goes around the molding and the drum fits inside this gasket. You can purchase at most appliance retailers, I replaced mine after about 3 years and now it has been another 3 years and needs replaced again. Not expensive, I believe less than 20 bucks,and will solve the problem. If you feel around the inside of the dryer your the clothes get stuck you should find one spot in the dreyer where this gap gets larger that is where the clothes enter this trap and then get spun aroud to where it tightens up and in effect burns them.

It isn't the gasket and it isn't rust stains. Clothing gets caught in the frame around the lint filter, inside the dryer, and damaged; I've had silks ruined by winding around and stretching, and I'm just realizing that the 5-8 torn sweaters I've found in the last year were all air dried in that dryer, in smallish loads. I will never buy another dryer with an interior frame for the lint filter like that one again. I never had this problem with my old Maytag dryer.

My frigidare heavy duty crown series gas dryer is n0t heating and barely able to dry my clothes--what could be the problem and how can i fix it


Hello Chuck, thanks for your inquiry
Based off the information you have provided I have identified a few possibilities as to why your dryer is not heating could be the element, thermostat, or control panel. Each component controls the heat within your dryer and if one goes out it is possible that can cause the rest to not function properly. To accurately find out the reason to why your dryer is not heating I would recommend having a professional come out. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Gas dyer not staying on, all the light are flashing


Does your model have sensor strips inside? Wash them with windex to remove any moisture barrier on them. They sense wetness and if they don't feel any wetness they make the control think them clothes is dry and it shuts down the dryer thinkin them clothes is dry.

Affinity dryer less than 2 yrs. old will not turn. It hums, but the drum will not turn.


Please check if there's something stuck outside the rotating drum. Sometimes small cloth escapes out of the drum during drying and gets stuck in the rotating shaft. Just try to reach the back side fo the rotating drum inside and make sure that there's no cloth that's stucked inside. Please make sure that you unplug the cord first.
If in case that you did not find anything, you may have a busted capacitor or worse, the motor is defective. It could be that the motor windings are shorted or a bad bushing.
Hope this helps.

The dryer makes a squeaky noise and has begun "eating" clothes. They get stuck in the crack.


Both the faults are related to a poor alignment of the unit. You will have to remove and adjust the dyer to realign so as to reduce the gap as well as remove the squeaky noise.
remove the unit check the movement and set it to move with the slightest gap.

I have the GLEQ212ES1 dryer. When it is running. it sounds like something is rubbing against the drum. When you turn it by hand manually, the drum is harder to turn.Could a piece clothing gotten stuck...


Although this is possible, usually one of the wheel bearings may have gotten dry or even is stuck. Inside there are wheels that the drum is steadied by and that rotate with the drum. If it's a year old it should be under warranty and a tech can fix it. If that is a problem, remove the back (after unplugging it) find the wheels and rotate the drum by hand. If a wheel is stuck or dry you will find it. I hope this helps.
