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.
I would suggest replacing the front drum bearing. Sounds like the gap is now excessive, obviously allowing clothes to get caught up in there. Drum must be removed from the dryer to do this. Good luck, hope this helps.
If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:RollersRear sealFront glidesFront sealRollersYour
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 sealYour
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 glidesYour
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. When the glides
wear out, you need to replace them as a set.Front sealMany
dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is
worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn
in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer
interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.
you may need to replace the upper and lower drum felts, if they are worn, some of the clothing may be getting caught agains the drum and getting a mark on them. if the mark is like a pencil line mark it will be from the dryer, if it is more like an oil spot it will be from your washer. take a look at #20 & 21 in this picture.you may also need to replace the rear bearing which is #12 in this other picture. hope these help you.
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.
I am having this same problem with my GE dryer. I found a post on fixitnow.com from a guy that has repaired these for years. He says it is the rear drum bearing. Looks like a pretty easy fix, I am going to try to do it myself. If you try this, I have also read that you should spend the extra $10 to go ahead and replace the drums front felt glide kit.
HI thanks for your question. the problem with your dryer, is that the front felt bearing is worn. and dropped the drum a bit and clothes getting caught. replace the front bearing and the back bearing. not too expensive. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my question. thanks.
