Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Good morning, Kenmore dryer, Model #417 After removing items from the dryer, there are occasional what look like orange/brown burn marks (1"-2" long X 1/2" wide, almost as if in a crease line) mostly on white bed linen or similar white items. These marks are not on the items before they go in the dryer as I have checked that sequence of possible origination. Help, please in identifying the cause and solution. Thank you. David Young

The source of the stain marks is a worn felt seal. These are the seals that separate the front and rear edges of the drum and the front panel and the rear of the cabinet. When the felt seals get worn, the edge of the drum makes metal-to-metal contact with the cabinet and clothing items can get caught between them resulting in the stains. Simply replace the felt seals to address the problem.

Clothes, fabrics are coming out of dryer with burn marks


If those marks are little brown marks/they do look like burn marks but your cloths are being pinched by the front and rear felts on the drum//to test that take a white rag reach in to dryer at the edge of the drum front and rear rub the rag// you may have to push it between the drum and the dryer housing you will get brown marks that is rust///If you replace front and rear drum glides (seals) that will cure the problem I would price parts first as sometimes replacement is a lot cheaper.......Hope this helped....If I did please vote If you need more help please ask...Good luck

Brown marks left on clothing.


You probably have significant lint buildup inside the machine. The lint gets burned by the heater and causes the dark marks on the clothes.

This could indicate a fire hazard!!

The solution is to disassemble the machine and remove all lint residue inside, especially in the heater area.

Dryer 65291, burn marks


The problem you describe is usually caused by a rear drum seal worn and pinching articles during part of the drum's rotation. Replacing the rear drum seal is covered in great detail at the link below. Be sure to follow all links in blue that pertain to your machine. Caution: The glue that comes with the seal is VERY sticky and messy and comes out faster than you'd like at times. Do not get it on areas and items you're not prepared to discard. It is VERY difficult to remove once dry and it dries very quickly.
