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.5eff87c.jpg
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.

How do I replace the felt seal


Most felt seals are glued in with a hi temp glue. Without seeing it I can't be sure but I think the drum has to come out to fix it properly. The glue can be purchased from most parts suppliers and sometimes comes with the new seal.

LG DRYER part # LG4036EL3001A felt seal. Verified by LG to be correct part for Model DLE5977W. Felt drum seal seems to measure 36.5


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter the model. You will be presented with a list of common repair parts/assemblies and may be able to view a generic LG video showing disassembly. There are a variety of reasons why you may have the wrong part. Also, if adhesive is listed, try to confirm its purpose.

Hi momcd5...
Yes, if you replace the felt seal the noise should stop.
Be sure to use a good grade of adhesive to glue the felt sealing strip to the drum, or follow the instructions with the new felt seal

Maytag dryer is leaving black marks or rings on clothes


If your clothes get 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.

A piece of felt like material is hanging from the inside (top) front of the dryer. What is this? Can I fix it myself?


The felt is the seal that keeps the clothes from falling inside the dryer. The front of the dryer needs to be removed and the seal replaced (you can glue it back, but this usually means the seal is worn out)
