Question about Washing Machines
Clothes get stuck between rotating dyer and front moldeing inside dryer
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.

I have done some searching and the results come up the same: Replace the felt guides along the top (and bottom)

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.

Tips for a great answer:
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
