Question about Frigidaire FEQ332E Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Same Problem You stated that "Replace the top half of this felt with those plastic glides attached (should be attached). " The image is not attached, the 4 to 5 plastic drum guides and the glue that you are talking about. Is that the part number 20? On the sears web site part 20 only shows 2 so I am just trying to find out all the parts needed to perform the repair. Thank you so much for you help so far.

I have a frigidare fse44ghso clothes keep getting caught and stained up into the edge of the drum. Can i fix this?


You will need to replace the "glides" and the "felt" on your dryer.Here are the glides to order.Here is the lower felt to order.Here is the upper felt to order.
You have to remove the top panel first and then the front panel. Remove the old felts and clean the metal surfaces from the old particles. Install both new felts using the glue included in the felt/glide assembly. Let it dry before reassembly.

Here is a video to show you how to do the upper felt.



Here is a video to show you how to do the lower felt.


Here is a video for the glide replacement.


The videos may be a little different in the model they show but the process is the same. Your dryer will be as good as new after this repair.
The parts comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return.

We have a problem with our frigidaire dryer FEQB4000FS0 snaps, zippers and buttons are getting caught in the gap between ther inside of the dryer and the drum, as a result all the clothes are getting...


Sounds like the felt seal is missing,shifted, or broken.
The felt seal is what keeps the zippers,buttons,etc from catching in the door and causing problems.
If you plan to do the repairs yourself, then make sure you unplug the dryer before starting any repairs.
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum and felt seal.
You can now inspect the seal to see if it is faulty. Replace it if it is needed.
If you remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good luck,
I hope this helps

How do I replace the felt seal on a DVL223 clothes dryer?


There are usually some torxes screws underneath the top of the dryer. They need to be removed. Then there are a couple of bolts at the bottom, they normally don't have to be taken all the way out, just loosened. and there should be a couple of bolts inside for the front assemble...unplug the door switch, lift up on the door and just move it aside. Don't move the drum around too much since it shouldn't have to be removed...the felt is normally attached to the door is should be replaced the same way you remove the old one. A good time to look at the wear on your slippers, which are really plastic glides for the dum to run smoothly on, but they are right there, and if they need replaced, the job would be simple at this point and cheap.

My dryer of the same model number had the same issue. The teflon/plastic wear points are worn out or have fallen off. They are about $22.00 plus shipping at the site below. Disconnect the power, lift (with force) the top off at the front of the dryer and you will have access to remove and replace.

That is an accurate description
the drum of all dryers is suspended from a combination of
felt pads at the drum ends
nylon glides under the drum
rubber tired thrust rollers.
the rubber tires wear, and the drum shifts, this pinches and wears the felts, then there is enough space to pinch the clothes in the gap
It is a simple enough fix, and well worthwhile, felts glides and rollers are cheap in comparison to new dryers.
Generically all dryers are pretty much the same, so when you go to the parts store, the felts rollers and glides may be labelled whirlpool or kenmore
they will fit exactly, there are very few that fit very many models.

To do the job
  • UNPLUG DRYER
  • If a top mounted lint screen, remove lint screen and 2 screws under lint screen from top of case
  • with a putty knife or other blunt blade release spring clips at front corners of lid, retaining lid to front panel
  • tilt lid up
  • remove 1screw each side 1/3 way down front
  • disconnect door switch wires
  • remove front panel and door
  • pull tensioner to end of its travel against tensioner spring, and unhook belt
    (Note:: position of belt around tensinoer and motor pulleys for reinstall)
  • pull drum out forwards
  • motor, pulleys, support rollers, felts, and glides can now be inspected
good roller
3d57115.jpg bad roller
7133e59.jpg rollers are in pairs, if one is worn replace both

Inspect felts and nylon glides where fitted, any wear - replace

to replace felts
requirements 2 or more pairs locking pliers(visegrips) hitemp silicone adhesive
  • pull old felt off
  • scrape off old adhesive
  • spread gllue on drum edge
  • secure felt on drum with visegrip
  • pull felt into place, clip with visegrip, pull again clip with visegrips, work around until felt is attached to drum and clipped in place
  • allow glue to set
nylon glides, if fitted replace easily, a central screw, or glue

reassemble in reverse order

What is happening here, is that the front bering (the area between the front and the drum) has become worn. Its not a very expensive or time consuming job really. Remove the top, then remove the front. You will tilt down the front and door assembly. Dont worry about the drum falling out, Frigidaire uses a ball and hitch rear bering that will hold it in place. On the very top of the door opening indise the front cover (where the drum rides on that felt) you should see a felt like covering with like 4 or 5 plastic type drum glides. Replace the top half of this felt with those plastic glides attached (should be attached). Just re-glue the felt to the drum (glue should come with part, and watch it, this glue is for real if you get it on you). If you wanted to be a real explorer, its always a good idea the lube or grease the rear bering of these Frigidaire's while your this far into it. If you want to, just remove the belt (remembering how it went back on the idler pully), then, with two towels around your hands, grasp the drum at around the 10 o'clock position and tug upwards to remove the drum from the rear bering. Also be sure to remove the drum upper support (yellow looking clip thing front center that will hold the drum until you remove it). Use a good quality-high temp grease inside the bering and the ball on the back of the drum. This will ensure you wont have to go back in there again normally for the rest of your dryers lifetime. Enclosed a picture of the front bering glides and felt:

And a small break down of the front section. Your part will be #20 that you will be replacing.
