Button stuck in kenmore 110

Hi! There is a button stuck in my dryer. I can feel it at the edge of the drum but I can't get it out. I've been working on it with a needlenose plier, but no luck. It's a little round metal button. Can I increase the gap of the drum and the dryer at all?

Stopped working. Circuit breakers are not tripped, electrical plug in all the way

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. After this post I will need your dryers' complete model number For now check the door switch. As you just open or just close the dryer door, listen for an audible "Click" as in a micro-switch clicking sound. No click = door switch problem

Also open the door and turn the dryer drum by hand. It should also be turning the motor as you rotte the drum in both directions. I you can not feel the motor rotating or... it rotates in one direction but not the other there is a belt problem. The drum should not easily turn 360 degrees.

Check the door switch and check the belt. If after this is is still dead... there is more that can be done but, I need a complete model number for further comment. The model number will be 3 digits followed by 8 digits 110.++++++++
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Clothes get tuck on the front edge and discolors

it most probably needs to have the felt cushion on the front of the drum replaced.

Dryer does not heat up

I would remove and clean the vent pipe on the back of the machine. There could be blockage inside causing your dryer to have little or no airflow(Check with vent not hooked of for a few min and see. Also make sure that your washer is spinning your clothes damp dry before you put them in the dryer. The rattling could be from any number of things. Check inside make sure there aren't any items stuck inside the drum or along the edge of the drum.
I hope this helps if i can help with anything else please let me know.

Drum not turning properly

Check the belt and see that it is not worn down, kind of like a fan belt on a car. You may want to replace it anyway. next, the motor be be loose from the frame it is fastened to. Feel the surface of the drum for any grooves or worn places. There may be build up of debris. You can take off top of dryer to gain easier access to the drum.

Parts of clothes get stuck in edge of dryer...seems to burn them.

I have had this same problem with my stack-able dryer. It was leaving small burns on my kids clothes and my good sheets. My dryer has a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer can get caught and scorched or torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. My seal was worn out, so I needed to replace it. I had someone come in and do the work the first time but when it wore out again I just order the part and replaced it myself. It is fixable:)
