Question about Dryers
The felt seal replacement kit should come with some high temp. epoxy to glue the seal back on. The epoxy is quick drying and can be very messy. The easiest method to install the seal is to remove the drum from the cabinet and place it on its end with the felt seal UP. Remove the old seal and clean the old surface. Apply a thin film of epoxy all the way around the perimeter of drum and spread using an old paint brush or cotton swab (something you will want to throw away when done. Only apply enough to the surface area where to seal is applied. While the glue is still tacky, begin applying the seal to the drum, slowly working your way all the way around the drum. The glue is fast drying, so you will only have a few minutes before it begins to harden. Once the seal is in place, allow the glue to set up for a few minutes and reinstall drum.
The instructions come with the repair kit. If you post back with your MODEL NUMBER, I see if I can provide you with a part number.

Hi, If this a whirlpool make, The felt side gets the glue. The edge that is sown tight on the edge gets glued to the tub. Make sure that you do not push the seal to far unto the drum so the flap on the seal hangs against the edge of the drum.
I tried looking up your part # and it doesn't come up.
If you look at the back side of this seal you will notice a threading closer to one side and not the other. The thread (felt side) closest to the edge is the one that gets glued to the drum.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.
