Sounds like there might be some carbon or charred material within the unit or built up on the elements making its way into the drying chamber. Consider removing the back and give it a good cleaning with an air-hose or vaccuum.

Frigidare dryer is leaving Waffle pattern left on clothes after coming out of dryer. Only waffle pattern is back wall of dryer what is going on? Frigidard infinity dryer 3 yrs old


Does it look like a scorch mark? The hot air inlet is usually near the top of the dryer and it would seem that the only time that something like that could happen is if the dryer stopped with clothes in contact with the hot air inlet. Dryer overloaded? Is the dryer vent plugged with lint.
The thermal fuse should blow if the inlet air exceeds 309 Degrees fahrenheit. Is the dryer cycle working properly. There should be a cool down .period before the dryer stops. If you have not cleaned the dryer vent pipes it would be a good thing to at least check.

I'm getting burn marks on clothes. Think it's the seal on the back of dryer? Must hang to dry all white clothes, so what's the point o fhaving a dryer?


The gasket between the drum and the back panel may be worn or missing.  I had a similar problem with a 34 year old dryer when the felt gasket wore out and allowed metal-to-metal contact between the drum and the back panel.  The clothes would get pinched between them and make a black "kiss" mark.

Clothing gets caught in the front of the dryer as it spins. This is leaving black marks and wholes in our clothing.
