    I have the same problem of the dryer leaving burn marks on clothes. I think the burn marks are coming from the edge of the tumbler near the door. Anyone know what is causing this and how to fix?

    I have the same problem but my dryer is only about 8 yrs old. Small clothing tags, dress shirt collars and even in the middle of a garment gets brown marks. I have a Kenmore Heavy duty, gas, stainless steel model. I use the dryer balls (2) to help lift the clothing during the drying process but something gets marked anyway. I use Zout spot cleaner to remove the stain and wash with another load at a later time.

    I started buying non iron shirts for a few more dollars to save money from sending to the cleaners but now the corners of collars sometimes have this brown mark which doesnt come out! Why is this happening and how do I solve the problem?

SOURCE: 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

Front bearing assembly or just the slides. Easy check is open the door reach in and push up in the front if the drum has play replace bearing assembly or maybe just get away with the slides if it hasn't eaten in to far. To replace watch the video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

SOURCE: The dryer is leaving what looks like brown burn marks on clothes

The marks are coming from your dryer seal. I had the brown mark problem on my Whirlpool LER4634EQ1 Dryer. It turns out that the inner drum seal wore the paint off the pilot diameter on the inner wall. The pilot diameter rusted and the rust transfered onto the seal. The marks on the clothes are rust marks. I replaced the seal on my dryer, but don't know how long it will last. You may need to try and paint the pilot diameter. The seal with glue was $34 delivered from pcappliancerepair.com. Here's pictures of the rust: http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/ZeeVert/Whirlpool%20Dryer/

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:

Usually, if you are getting brown streaks or marks on clothing, one or both of the drum seals are going bad. Clothing will drag between the bulkhead and the drum, leaving brown marks. If you want to do the repair yourself, I can provide instructions, otherwise call for service.
