SOURCE: clothes get caught between frame and drum

Is this the dcvh515 GE? Mine began doing that and then started making a high pitched scraping noise that sounds like it's coming fron the door gasket/seal.

SOURCE: my dryer squeaks and keeps eating the clothes

Squeaking is the rear drum bearing. The rest is the front drum slide supports. After a number of years, these wear and need replacing. Without the model number I can't give you the part numbers that fit your machine.

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
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.

SOURCE: Dryer is eating clothes

suspect you have to buy a new part. I think they design them to go soft after only a year, so you have to replace them or buy a whole new machine.

SOURCE: my dryer eats my clothes by twisting them up

the front of the drum rides on a felt pad. as the pad wears down it creates a gap for the clothes to get caught in. you just need to replace this felt. sometimes called front bearing sometimes called felt seal.

Frigidaire Gallery dryer Model FSG447GHSO. Clothes and dryer sheets get caught between the drum and one of the three "bumps" inside the drum, causing burn marks on clothing. I can see the gap where it


There is a gasket that fits around the back side of the tumbler. Sounds like it needs replacing. It's job is to keep clothes inside the tumbler.

My dryer is eating my straps on my clothing


My guess, since I can't see it, is that the gasket between the drum and the back of the dryer (which keeps stuff from passing between them and into the innards of the dryer) is worn and creating a gap that your clothes are slipping into.

Clothes stuck in drum


You might have a drum glide, felt piece, that has come off or unaligned itself from the drum. Contact Frigidaire for one and replace it. You have too much of a gap in the front and that is why your clothing material gets caught.

My clothes are being ruined in the dryer..I have the DCVH515 frontload model...clothes getting caught inside..i think some kind of seal from the inside around the door opening is gone..clothes are getting...


I have had the same problem for about 6 months. I have been sticking duct tape on the inside over where my clothes were getting hung/caught. It works :) but the heat makes the duct tape peel off so you have to keep replacing it. We finally had to call a repairman when the drum started making a horrible noise. He came out this morning and said one of the "sliders" the drum rolls on had broken. He said when the sliders begin cracking it can make a very slight gap where the clothes were getting caught. I have run 3 loads this morning and had only one dishtowel get hung whereas before multiple items in each load were doing it. He said there are multiple sliders so it may happen again.

He also said the clothes getting hung was an indication of a breaking slider so you may want to call a repairman to head off your drum doing what mine did. It cost me a total of $105 and I live in SE Texas.

The dryer makes a squeaky noise and has begun "eating" clothes. They get stuck in the crack.


Both the faults are related to a poor alignment of the unit. You will have to remove and adjust the dyer to realign so as to reduce the gap as well as remove the squeaky noise.
remove the unit check the movement and set it to move with the slightest gap.

Moffat heavey Duty Dryer


Hi and thank you for your request.
Assuming the marks were not there before you put them in the dryer, then there are a couple of possibilities for the marks appearing.
Check that none of the clothes lifters or ribs as they are sometimes called in the drum are not loose, as the clothes could get caught in any gaps,make sure that there is no large gap between the drum front and the front of the dryer, as again clothes could get caught here,,check to see nothing is stuck on the drum itself that could transfer onto the clothes.
Make sure the drum is free to turn and that there is no unusual noise coming from it, if it does appear to be noisier than usual ,then it could be the drum rollers or bearings are starting to wear and this could transfer grease and the like onto your clothes.
Hope these suggestions help with your prob.
Plz feel free to leave any comments and rate my suggestions.
Thanks
