You need to check the drum where it fits into the front door/front housing. If the housing is worn close will get caught and tear.

Making thumping noise and burning clothes


You list no brand or model so an answer must be somewhat vague. A loose drum causes the noise described while it also allows air to leak from outside the normal air flow path causing erratic high/low temperatures contributing to burning. Sometimes clothes can also get caught in the gaps caused by the tub moving excessively which causes tears, pinches and rips in clothing. Most dryers will have rollers and/or glides to carry the weight at the front of the drum. Check to determine if these are worn, loose or broken. A few models carry all the weight at the rear of the drum (Frigidaire and some GE) so check the rear bearing for excess wear and replace as needed. It's always a good idea to also clean debris and lint from inside the cabinet while the dryer is disassembled for repairs.

MY FRIGIDAIRE ELECTRIC DRYER IS LEAVING BURN MARKS ON CLOTHES,WHAT IS CAUSING PROBLEM


Assuming that you have the correct temperature selected for your clothes, there are two likely causes:

If the clothes are showing randomly shaped burn marks, the dryer is overheating. This would be accompanied by a burnt smell on the clothes. The high limit thermostat is the culprit.

If the burn marks are dark streaks, the clothes are getting pinched between the drum and the inside of the dryer that does not move. This is caused by worn bearings, slides or rollers. Should you choose to repair this yourself, there is a great deal on a kit with all of the parts you need plus a new belt for only $32 here:

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

I'm getting burn marks on clothes. Think it's the seal on the back of dryer? Must hang to dry all white clothes, so what's the point o fhaving a dryer?


The gasket between the drum and the back panel may be worn or missing.  I had a similar problem with a 34 year old dryer when the felt gasket wore out and allowed metal-to-metal contact between the drum and the back panel.  The clothes would get pinched between them and make a black "kiss" mark.

Clothes burnt?


Try turning down the heat setting on your dryer. This should help immensely. Dry these types of clothing on say "medium" setting and the heavier things on normal heat.
