Holes in Clothes from Dryer

Our 7 year old Dryer seems to be making small 1/4" holes in some our clothes. In addition the small heating vent in the back (inside) of the dryer is running extemely hot and has darkened. It also seems rougher like the enamel or coating has worn off . However, the holes in the clothes are not showing actual burn marks that you would expect. Any ideas?

Holes in clothes


I'd bet the holes are the same size as the holes in the dryer tumbler. the only thing I can think of is that your dryer isn't tumbling and the heat that is pushed through the holes is burning your clothes.

Holes in Clothes


You'll need a drill with a wire brush attachment and take that to the front of the heating element. The heating element gets a lot of crud built up on it and yes it'll put holes on clothes.

Dryer heats with smaller loads


1. unplug your machine and rach as far in the exhaust part of the dryer to see if there is an obstrucxtion
2.Take out the lint filter and make sure there are no gaping holes in the screen
3. Check the exhaust house leaving the machine or blockage, this hose should not run more than ten feet for optimal drying time.
4. its your heating element

Hello: I have a Maytag, do not know model # as I inherited the 5 year old model when I purchased a condo and it is now 7 years old. The front of it states Maytag - Dependable Use, Heavy Dtuty - Large...


I ALWAYS START WITH VENTING WHEN CALLED WITH LONG DRYING TIMES BUT I HAVE SEEN WHERE ONLY HALF OF THE HEATING ELEMENT IS WORKING, WHICH IS PRETTY RARE. A NORMAL LOAD WOULD BE WHATEVER THE WASHER HAD IN IT WHICH WOULD BE LOOSLY FILLED TO THE TOP ROW OF HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB. THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS IF THE WASHER SEEMS TO BE SPINNING OUT PROPERLY AND IF THE CLOTHES ARE GOING INTO THE DRYER TOO WET.

Inside of the dryer is cracking- huge holes!


the drum can be replaced but dont know if you want to pay for one they are probably expensive and 2nd if it is taking 2 to 3 times to dry clothes you have a vent problem which has caused the cracking of the drum probably cause so much heat build up in the machine your vent is stopped up and it isnt keeping the heat and moisture in the dryer which is a fire hazard please call a technician and please rate this
