You need to replace your drum seal on the drum or on the door of the dryer.
I will inlcude instructions on how to change the belt. Just be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement to hold the felt drum seal in place when you replace it with a new one.
The same directions can be used to repair/replace the door seal except once you get the drum out of the dryer that is as far as you must go. I will also recommend that you oil your drum rollers while you have the drum out to keep from having a problem in the future with them squeeling.

If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that the
drum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped.
Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that
can be handled with a few simple tools.
First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen
If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step.
Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,
insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel,
about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking
clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the top
up and lean it against the wall.
Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel
and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip
Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs.
To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap wood
under the front of the drum.
Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.
Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the
cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides.
Slide the old belt off the drum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing the belt
Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood
support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and
loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front
panel back into position.
Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel
screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure that
the rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead.
Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the belt
facing down.
Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new belt
around the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up,
under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip the
belt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley.

Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to make
sure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each
corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screws
and reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turn
on the dryer for a test.

My clothes are being ruined in the dryer..I have the DCVH515 frontload model...clothes getting caught inside..i think some kind of seal from the inside around the door opening is gone..clothes are getting...


I have had the same problem for about 6 months. I have been sticking duct tape on the inside over where my clothes were getting hung/caught. It works :) but the heat makes the duct tape peel off so you have to keep replacing it. We finally had to call a repairman when the drum started making a horrible noise. He came out this morning and said one of the "sliders" the drum rolls on had broken. He said when the sliders begin cracking it can make a very slight gap where the clothes were getting caught. I have run 3 loads this morning and had only one dishtowel get hung whereas before multiple items in each load were doing it. He said there are multiple sliders so it may happen again.

He also said the clothes getting hung was an indication of a breaking slider so you may want to call a repairman to head off your drum doing what mine did. It cost me a total of $105 and I live in SE Texas.

Our cloths are snaging between the dryer door and the front wall on the handle side of the door (left side). There so stuck that they rip a hole in them when we free them.


Sounds like you front drum support / bearing is wearing out. When the support wears out, a gap occurs between the drum and drum support, That is where the clothes are getting caught, Does your dryer squeak when running? If so, then replace the front drum support / bearing. Cost about $35 - $40.

Everything gets caught in the front crack where the drum ends by


The glides on the inside of the front door are worn, possibly the felt too. You'll have to remove the front of the dryer to see the problem and fix it. Mine did the same thing. Because they are worn the drum is at an angle allowing a gap to form where the clothes get stuck.

My dryer leaves burn marks on the clothes. What


Hi. Thanks for using fixya. I can help you. When clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these: 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. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Front seal Many 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. small_8_13.jpg

My dryer squeaks and keeps eating the clothes and leaving burn marks on spots on them because it gets caught in the turn part of the dryer, it is a hotpoint electric dryer, what can cause that?


Squeaking is the rear drum bearing. The rest is the front drum slide supports. After a number of years, these wear and need replacing. Without the model number I can't give you the part numbers that fit your machine.

NVLR333ETOWB HOTPOINT DRYER EATING CLOTHES


Very likely the front support bearing is worn through and cracked there are also three drum slides that are positioned on the bearing which very likely worn to nothing and will need to be replaced as well. For model # NVLR333ET0WB replacement part numbers are:
FRONT BEARING: WE3X77
BEARING SLIDES: WE3X87

Good Luck to you.

GE dryer, black grease stain on cloth


I have the same problem, I haven't resolved it but it seems to be due to the drum of the dryer being able to move more than it's supposed to and things getting caught in between the drum and whatever it sits in, at the front of the dryer. I have found things caught in there before and when I've pulled them out they had a brown/yellow grease stain on them. Other times something in the dryer will have this same stain - although no longer caught it seems it must have been caught at some point then became free again, with the stain. I'm thinking something is loose or if the drum is supported at the back by a bearing of some sort, this bearing may be worn down and the drum isn't sitting right.
