That dryer is obviously a vented dryer. the problem you are having is that the drum itself is falling back off the front bearing plate(i have actualy got a call in the morning for the same fault) the solution is to remove the back panel from the machine and place a washer about 4mm thick between the drum and rear panel on the shaft. this will solve your problem.

How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

Getting some sort of rust stain on my clothes from this dryer?


if you look inside b/w the drum to the front wall you see on the bottom a gap.
this gap come from ware and taire of the seal felt. and the clothes get stuck there. you need a new upper felt (its like special sponge or fabric)
as a technitian i change thus every 4-5 years b/c they just ware down .
the felt is the sponge that the drum ride on ,in the front wall of your dryer

Frigidaire Dryer. Clothes are damaged by either being ripped when caught on dryer drum. Clothes also are marked with hard to remove rub marks.


Open the dryer door. Reach in just inside and feel for the felt seal that goes all of the way around the drum. The culprit is usually the top portion of the seal which supports the end of the drum near the door is worn out. This allows the drum to tip down and leaves a gap at the bottom. Clothes get caught in this gap and get rubbed and marked or rubbed clear through. Remove the front of the dryer and replace the seal. On some models the top 1/3 is replaceable. This portion carries the weight of the drum and is what wears out.

Clothes getting stuck in door seal when drying.


the plastic that you see overlapping the metal on the sides of the opening is in two parts, top and bottom, you can see the seem. the top is the smaller part, this plastic is also the drum support on the front. There are some glides on the top section that wear with time, after a few years they may need replacement. Perhaps these are worn out dropping the drum creating an uneven gap and catching. there is also a felt strip in there between the front of the dryer and the drum, keeping it back.
To view this remove the top by removing the 2 screws inside upper door opening holding top down. then lift top and if plastic console slide to left then pull away, metal -just pull straight. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet sides. pull front forward. glides are visible on top. if not there or worn thru plastic replace upper plastic support

Frigidaire crown series 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.
