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.
indicates a long drain. Here are some tips that should help you
resolve this problem:
Check your washer drain to make sure
that it is draining properly.
Check the drain hose for kinks and
clogs. Make sure that it is installed properly per the instructions in
your owner's manual. An improperly installed drain hose can prevent
from draining properly.
Check for excessive suds in the washer
tub. Excessive suds can prevent the washer from draining properly
and will result in the F21 code. Make sure that you are using the proper
amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to prevent excessive suds.
Remove any clothes and then use a
wet/dry shop vac to drain any water out of the washer.
shallow pans and/or towel in front of the large item filter shown in the
second image below to catch residual water when you remove this filter.Remove
the large item filter as shown below. It is likely that you will find a
clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining.
you do not find any clog or restriction in the large item filter and
none of the other issues discussed above apply to your situation, then
you could have a failed drain pump. If the pump is damaged and will not
pump out water then it will need to be replaced.
No there isn`t a lot you can do about this unfortunately. A simple shaking of your clothes may eliminate any surface hair. And if desired, for certain hair attracted items I would even runs a vacuum or a lint brush over the hairiest items. If you didn`t get the hair back on your clothes after the wash it would most deffinelty restrict or stop your pump.hope this helps.
I have the same problem with a Maytag Performa gas dryer. My husband took our dryer apart and found that the burner tube which leads from the burner to the back of the dryer was full of soot (which was getting blown back into the dryer drum with the hot air.) We are cleaning it out now but would like to know how to prevent this from recurring in the future.
there is a spring style clamp holding it to the front panel simply peel back slightly and "pop" it off, then holding it to the inner tub is a screw style clamp, depending on yr of production, either a 5/32 scrwe or a phillips, holding it in the 2 oclock position, release clamp andreinstall boot, it might take some time to get to fit backaround hte tub but itll bo, you gotta walk it on in spots ( like changing a tireon the bikes as a kid) itlll strectch over the rim and fit, just have to work it
Your problem is a bad rear drum seal-if these become worn, torn, or missing close can get caught torn or discolored in the space between the clothes drum and rear of the dryer. Replace the rear drum seal.
It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it.
In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed.
Good luck !!
