I have a Kenmore dryer 417.83142201. I just replaced felt pads, upper and lower along with the glides, dryer still squealls.
Last year I replaced the rocker arm which stopped the squeaking at that time. What else can make this squeak? It squeaks all the time now!
Thanks,

Kenmore 80 series dryer is making a loud screaching grinding noise what could be the problem


Kenmore (Sears) dryers are usually manufactured by Whirlpool. The rear of the drum rides on 2 lower rubber rollers that go bad with age. Those rollers may need replaced. There is also a felt seal strip attached to the rear of the drum that rides the back wall of the dryer that may need replaced. Can only tell for sure by disassembling the dryer and checking.

I have a frigidare fse44ghso clothes keep getting caught and stained up into the edge of the drum. Can i fix this?


You will need to replace the "glides" and the "felt" on your dryer.Here are the glides to order.Here is the lower felt to order.Here is the upper felt to order.
You have to remove the top panel first and then the front panel. Remove the old felts and clean the metal surfaces from the old particles. Install both new felts using the glue included in the felt/glide assembly. Let it dry before reassembly.

Here is a video to show you how to do the upper felt.



Here is a video to show you how to do the lower felt.


Here is a video for the glide replacement.


The videos may be a little different in the model they show but the process is the same. Your dryer will be as good as new after this repair.
The parts comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.

How to repair stainless steel on a dryer drum


For my Frigidaire manufactured Kenmore dryer, the stainless steel drum is part ordinary painted steel (front flange). That flange is part of the suspension for the drum. The flange rides on a nylon wear pad above the door. On both sides of the pad, there is a felt that is glued to the dryer front panel to act as a seal. What happens is that the paint on the ordinary steel flange rubs through and rusts, staining clothes during the drying cycle. I have to replace the nylon pad and felts every few years to combat the rusting issue. The felt and nylong pad assembly is glued to the cabinet flange using heat resistant adhesive.

Dryer drum is scraping something and black deposits are turning up on our clothes


Well there are two parts to the drum, there is the bearing in the back and the felt pads in the front which the drum rides on. There is also a belt, but if something is scraping it would not be that. Is sounds as though the cover on the felts has worn off and your getting felt material on your clothes, so those need to be replaced. You need to get the proper felts for your dryer than you need to look for any screws on your dryer casing that will allow you to remove the casing and get to the drum, as the pads are underneath the drum. (Note: Inside the door there may be screws on the underside of the upper deck, and the deck should tilt backward on hinges)

Replace the felt on a ge dryer part #we9m30?


You need to buy new felt. There is an upper and a lower piece. The upper piece has 3 glides to support the drum. When you buy the parts, make sure you have the dryer part number and there are some pictures that will help.

Make sure you uplug the dryer. Flip up the top lid of the dryer by sliding a large flat nose screw driver under the front corners of the top. Remove the front panel by taking out two phillips screws. Also remove the power cable to the front controls so you can completely remove the front panel. Strip off the old felt and clean the surface as good as you can. Glue on the felt (you should get a tube of glue with the new felt). Let is dry a bit before you put everything back together. It is a pretty easy job.

Brown streaks on clothes


mich, The brown streaks are probably caused by worn drum guides and lower basket seal. I've seen this quite often on Frigidaire dryers. Part numbers 5303937139 upper felt guide and 5303283286 lower basket seal. This can be a task for an inexperienced person but can be done. It requires removing the top panel and front panel/door assy. The old guides have to be scraped off. The upper felt guides and lower seal glue on. Catriver...post back.
