HI. Due to the extreme heat levels that can occur in this type of unit: There isn't much that can be done to prevent this , overtime. The best actions are to remove the entire drum and strip the existing paint that is chipping and re apply a new and more resilient spray paint product. There are many heat resistant spray paint products on the market. With that said, i would use a clear coat finish on top of a flat gray or white. This will protect the underlay and prevent chipping for some time.

Check the conditions inside the drum.

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

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.

Help getting crayon out of dryer.


If they are globs you can freeze them by rubbing with an ice cube and scrape them off. If the residue is thin like a coat of paint use denatured alcohol or paint thinner to rub them off. Make sure you leave the dryer door open several hours after using solvent inside to air it out. Do not use the dryer immediately after using solvent or there could be a fire hazard.
If the crayon residue is on the clothes, you can put piece of absorbent paper (like a paper grocery bag) over the stain and iron it. The heat will melt the crayon wax and the paper will absorb it. You may have to do it several times to get it all out. Denatured alcohol or paint thinner might be needed to get the final stain out.

When the dryer is running it smells like charcol ligher fluid


Sometime recently there has been a petroleum product used in the house. Possibly an oil based paint, stain, varnish, adhesive or some form of cleaning product.

Anyone of these products or many others like them, contain a distillate of liquid. Check around the house.

Until that oil based product dries or cures, the odor and vapors will remain and so will the dryer smell.

At the end of the drying cycle, use the air fluff cycle to purge out the smell. Besure to return the selector on the dryer back to it's prior postition.

Dryer gives off a strong odor which make my clothes smell.


if you have been painting or staining recentley the chemicals in these products are mixing with the mercaptin in the gas to cause the odour. The problem will correct itself when the fumes are gone.

Rust stains and bleach spots.


I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.
