Drum in Amana dryer has dropped leaving a gap on back wall at bottom where it meets drum. clothes get torn & marked. How do I access & fix?


Tumble drier drum bearings are often nothing more than strips of felt stuck or clipped onto a pressed steel flange or a similar simple idea. They give good service but don't last forever and eventually metal-to-metal contact happens and if repairs are neglected the steel flanges are also worn away and the drum begins to tilt...

I have fitted several felt bearing kits and twice have needed to weld in some steel to restore a flange.

The job usually entails almost completely dismantling the casing.

The inside back & drum meets clothes getting stuck


sounds like one or more of the rollers the drum rides on has moved or is broken, using a putty knife slide it between the top and the front panels on each side to release the top of machine open it up like a car hood, the front of machine has clips holding it to the sides remove the front for access to the bottom of drum where rollers are, it should be obvious where the rollers are supposed to ride check for loose broken mounts, unit will snap back together

Everything gets caught in the front crack where the drum ends by


The glides on the inside of the front door are worn, possibly the felt too. You'll have to remove the front of the dryer to see the problem and fix it. Mine did the same thing. Because they are worn the drum is at an angle allowing a gap to form where the clothes get stuck.

Clothes get stuck between dryer and barrel


If your clothes get stuck, marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
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.

I have a Maytag Dryer MDE9806AYW Intelli Dry SQUEALS


Yes its worth repairing, it sounds like a simple fix, could be pulley, or seal replacement but for the price of some machine oil, or part, well worth it. The intelli dry pulls apart from front, with the door and top is hinged. A little time consumeing but I think still worth it.
