Re: duet gas dryer drum has peeling paint
I'd say no to both but it is an inconvenience. Check your warranty. You didn't mention a brand or model but on some dryers the drum has a longer warranty than the rest of the machine. Even if not it's worth a call to the manufacturer. Good luck!

The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.
yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.
Hello there: If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:RollersYour
dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes
drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop
down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the
clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear
out, you need to replace the whole set.Rear sealYour
dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal
is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space
between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the
rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.Front glidesYour
dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes
drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes
drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top
of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides
wear out, you need to replace them as a set.Front sealMany
dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is
worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn
in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer
interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.
Hello, I too bought one of these washers(WSSH300G1WW). After about one year of operation i noticed that the low spin cycle was making noise so look at it and it was just making noise and not spinning. canceled the cycle restarted the machine but this time set the spin speed to high instead of low, it works on high. im guessing its the clutch in the machine that is faulty and really cant affoard to fix at this time. The thing is i liked to use low spin cause the thing would shake violently on high even with a small load. So now when it spins or i start the machine i make sure theres nothing close that its shaking will cause to fall and break. I also bought the matching dryer (dsxh47eg1ww) it too has problems, the bearings that hold the front of the drum up are going out, thing is i dont over load it and it seems that they went out or started to go out very early as my clothes were getting caught inbetween the drum and the dryer 2 months after i bought it. Im 42 years old so i remember when we had REAL washer and dryers. When quality was revered by companies and consumers. Those old machines ran for years (maybe even decades) without problems, replace a belt from time to time. Now days your lucky to get five years out of an appliance. I know these ones arent going to see 5 years. their about 2 years old and im ready to go find some 1970 model year washer and dryer, rebuild, give a custom paint job to call them retro.
The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.
more than likly it is coming from the dryer. get a paper towel or a towel and run it between the inside of the drum and the front where they come together. stick it through the slot and run around the drum. do the front then do the back see if you see the same streaks. and let me know thanks
