SOURCE: kenmore dryer- remove fan to change motor on

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.

SOURCE: Dryer leaves brown spots on clothing articles.

With the combination of seal gaps and brown spots (streaks) on your clothes, chances are the front (part # 3406129 ~ $26) and rear (part # 279857 ~ $17) drum seals need to be replaced. Run a rag around the seals and check the marks to confirm this is the problem.
Depending how big the gap is, you may need to replace the drum support rollers if they are worn (part # 349241T ~ $24).
The parts are available at Sears. Labor costs will vary depending on where you live and if you're not replacing them yourself.
Let me know if you need more help or information.
Good luck!

Before assuming you have a bad heating element, read through the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poor ventilation which, in turn, causes the dryer to overheat to the point of failure. More commonly the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) fails. The component acts as a fuse and must be replaced if bad. In addition, if the TCO is determined to be defective, it is recommended that you replace the Hi-Limit Thermostat at the same time. Both these components work in conjunction with the heating element and are mounted on the heater box. The TCO is located on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat is located adjacent to the heating element leads. These two components are often sold as a kit. If you fail to replace both of them you can experience premature failure of the component you do replace.

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. If you haven't checked or cleaned the exhaust ducting any time recently, now might be a good time to do so . A dryer left in a clogged or poorly ventilated condition will cause repeated failures in the heating circuit. Not to mention this creates a fire hazard.

If you read through the link and determine that you have a bad heating element, follow these steps to remove:

1. Unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door.
2. Remove the lint screen from the dryer door.
3. Remove the blower fan housing vent cover.
4. Disconnect and label the component wiring on the heater box.
5. Loosen the mounting screw on the heater box front support.
6. The entire heater box, with element inside, should slide out of the dryer.
7. There should be a couple of mounting screws on the component side of the heater box that you need to remove and the entire element slides out.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

We have a Maytag Electric Dryer, Model LDE512 , which leaves black marks on clothes while drying them. The dryer is about 18 yrs. old and has been working great except for this one problem. We have...


HI The drum is mostly stainless steel; The end that contacts the drum guide is just painted steel. After years of rubbing, some rust can form after the paint wears away,thus, causing the stain. Painting the bare metal (after removing all rust) and replacing the tumbler bearings,roller and roller shafts, will correct this issue and prevent it form happening in the future. You should also replace the tumbler seal while the unit is disassembled. Part numbers are below:

Tumbler bearings/Glides(You need two)- 306508
Roller - 12001541
Roller shaft - 6-3129480
Tumbler seal - 314820
Roller Shaft washer - 312535
Retaining Ring(shaft)- 410233

My dryer leaves burn marks on the clothes. What


Hi. Thanks for using fixya. I can help you. When clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: Rollers Your 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 seal Your 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 glides Your 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 seal Many 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. small_8_13.jpg

Fabric looking belt came out of dryer. when i try to dry clothes it makes a loud noise and smells like something is burning and my clothes get twisted. how do i fix it? I have a kenmore 70 series dryer


Stop using your dryer in its current condition. That fabric looking felt is probably your drum seal. They commonly wear out. I will need your dryer model number in order to confirm how your dryer is configured and give you accurate advice on part numbers and directions on how to replace. The model number should be listed on a name plate around the door opening.

Parts of clothes get stuck in edge of dryer...seems to burn them.


I have had this same problem with my stack-able dryer. It was leaving small burns on my kids clothes and my good sheets. My dryer has a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer can get caught and scorched or torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. My seal was worn out, so I needed to replace it. I had someone come in and do the work the first time but when it wore out again I just order the part and replaced it myself. It is fixable:)

bad rollers could be making black dust but the real problem is the tumblers seals letting the roller dust get into the tumblers and on to you clothes.

Black or brown makers are from the faulty or damaged tumblers seals you have one in the frount and one back...

I can help you strp by step if you want to do it yourself.

My kenmore 417.94812301 staked washer / dryer problem


Your dryer was made by Frigidaire and needs what is called a rear bearing kit (#5303281153 costs about $30) from frigidaire.
there is also a good chance that your bearing failed because the dryer overheated (overheating is mostly caused by the venting being restricted)
