Clothes burnt? Is there something I can do to keep my dryer from pinching my clothes and burning them in 4 or 5 places on each shirt before I have to buy a new dryer?

The Front Drum Glide is worn out.
An easy fix.
Trouble is they are expensive...
The cheapest I have found so far is about $60.00, and I can't find an off brand.
It is recommended to also change the lower felt band if the first one is changed, at about $45.00, tho I found an off brand for about $20.00.
I can get a reconditioned dryer for about $100.00, therefore I'm still considering my options.
Hope this helps.
Gary

Check your venting!! Try taking the vent off and let it vent into the room, if it drys properly you've got a venting issue that is causing the dryer to overheat. Also check down in the lint filter housing and make sure there is not a buildup there.

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:

We have had this dryer for 6 years and for the last year it has been leaving brown marks on our clothes. The brown streaks will not come out easily. We have cleaned the dryer on the inside but this has not...


This is usually from the clothes being pinched. Either in the front or rear. The front uses a glide type system on GE style dryers and felt and rollers on most others. Here is a link. Check the type of dryer you have or send me the model # and I will direct you, then follow the links in the troubleshooting to the video that fits your dryer. If you enter your model # you can also get diagrams and illustrations that will also show you what type of dryer. The repairs are easy to do and inexpensive.

Dryer only works when the door is open


Hi,
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Ignitor Burning Out


Good day,
I assume it heats and cycles properly when it works. If so,
The sensor on the left side of the heat tube may be holding the igniter on too long. Only true test is a new sensor.

Something to keep in mind. You cannot touch the silicon carbide section of the igniter at all. If you do, the oil from your skin will cause a hot spot on that area, and destroy the igniter.

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.

Burnt smell on dryer


Hello fyffeta,
3 or 4 prong power should have no bearing on the dryer performance..3 prong provides 2 power feed lines and a neutral versus a 4 prong system that provides the same two power feeds, a neutral and a ground.. so performance wise.. you should not expect any. The fact that it sounds louder is subjective and may be a function of the move. whereby something inside the dryer shifted a little when transporting it.. or the accoustics of the new room. If you smell something burning then I would check the exaust duct system for any material and/or restrictions.. It is possible that by moving your dryer..some lint, fibers from clothes or even human hair may have been dislodged and found there way into the blower/heater region and are burning off.. With the plug disconnected..Make sure your power cable terminations at the dryer are all snug. a loose connection there is dangerous and is resistive ( which means it will get hot) and in some cases.. could cause a fire so check that carefully..
In all probability..you may just have some lint or something that shifted during the move and is burning away...
Good Luck
Rick

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
