Frigidaire electric dryer; model # FDEB34RGS1

Clothes are getting stuck in the drum groove in front bottom section of front load dryer. There is a gap where the drum rotates under lint catcher. Dryer is level. Any help would be appreciated! [If this thing ruins another piece of wife or daughters clothing, I could be in trouble.]

The front drum seal does not need replacing on a new product, it is a manufacturer defect, and I hope they recall this model soon!

My Maytag Performa electric dryer heats and tumbles, but the clothes take multiple cycles to dry, and water is pooling next to the left front foot. We cleaned the vent, replaced the vent hose, and opened...


two things come to mind; 1. although drum is rotating perhaps it is slipping under load. Change drum belt, and, 2. perhaps the problem isn't in the dryer, it could be that your washer is not spinning out properly leaving an inordinate amount of water in your clothes which would tax the performance of the dryer. Just a thought. good luck!

Clothes stuck in drum


You might have a drum glide, felt piece, that has come off or unaligned itself from the drum. Contact Frigidaire for one and replace it. You have too much of a gap in the front and that is why your clothing material gets caught.

The drum on my frigidaire Gallery dryer is tipped down , so there is a gap at the bottom and clothes get stuck in it. Can this be adjusted?


Suspect one or more failures of the drum front support bearings. Remove the cabinet top by removing several screws at the rear of the top, then pushing it to the rear somewhat which should allow the top front to lift up to allow removal of the front cabinet panel by taking out several screws on each side, then lifting the panel up to release it from the bottom. Once the panel is off, the support bearings should be mounted around the drum opening in the panel. Hope this helps!

My dryer eats my clothes by twisting them up between the drum and door. is there an update to fix this?


the front of the drum rides on a felt pad. as the pad wears down it creates a gap for the clothes to get caught in. you just need to replace this felt. sometimes called front bearing sometimes called felt seal.

Getting some sort of rust stain on my clothes from this dryer?


if you look inside b/w the drum to the front wall you see on the bottom a gap.
this gap come from ware and taire of the seal felt. and the clothes get stuck there. you need a new upper felt (its like special sponge or fabric)
as a technitian i change thus every 4-5 years b/c they just ware down .
the felt is the sponge that the drum ride on ,in the front wall of your dryer

I have a kenmore 27 inch electric dryer that when you push the start button it sounds like it starts but the drum doesn't turn. What could this be?


A clear indication that your dryer belt is broken is when the dryer drive motor runs but the drum does not rotate. A new belt is relatively inexpensive from several online or a local parts vendor, but installing it can be a bit frustrating since the dryer drum usually needs to be remove to install a replacement belt. Access to the interior of the dryer is usually necessary. For Maytag (and some Kenmore) models, the front of the dryer can be easily removed (two screws below front contour) by pulling out on the bottom of the panel and rotating up to release the top clips. Once off, place to the side, then remove four machine screws from the front drum/lint filter assembly, then remove by pullling out. Once off, place aside. Remove drum by lifting up and pulling out on drum (since the belt is broken it will not provide any resistance). Once removed, inspect the motor pulley arrangement noting the belt routing path around the motor pulley, belt tensioner, and the drum. Inspect the drum for belt wear marks, noting approximate location on drum where belt rides. Install replacement belt by routing through pulley arrangement (ridged side of belt rides againt motor pulley), then "hang" the belt on the interior backside to enable reaching the belt after reinstalling the drum. After placing the drum edge on the rear rollers, lift the front of the drum up into position, working the belt around the drum into the drum groove. Once the belt is in the groove, the drum should stay in position without lifting from the front. Check for proper pulley routing, taking care to avoid routing the belt OVER the tensioner belt keeper, i.e., route the the belt under the belt keeper to avoid belt riding on the keeper and failing prematurely. Install the front/lint filter assembly. As you manually rotate the drum, reach along the top and side of the drum and gently pull the belt out of the groove and into its normal ride position. Install the front panel, plug the unit in, start and check for proper rotation of the drum.

Frigidaire Dryer. Clothes are damaged by either being ripped when caught on dryer drum. Clothes also are marked with hard to remove rub marks.


Open the dryer door. Reach in just inside and feel for the felt seal that goes all of the way around the drum. The culprit is usually the top portion of the seal which supports the end of the drum near the door is worn out. This allows the drum to tip down and leaves a gap at the bottom. Clothes get caught in this gap and get rubbed and marked or rubbed clear through. Remove the front of the dryer and replace the seal. On some models the top 1/3 is replaceable. This portion carries the weight of the drum and is what wears out.
