    I have the same problem as well. I also notice the perforated back wall of the dryer is discolored a brownish color. I've had this discoloration on several white shirts recently. It bleaches out but I'm concerned because it looks like scorch burn. There is also brown discoloration on the perforated back wall of the dryer. It doesn't wipe off with a wet cloth. Any ideas?

Your problem is a bad rear drum seal-if these become worn, torn, or missing close can get caught torn or discolored in the space between the clothes drum and rear of the dryer. Replace the rear drum seal.

Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat


Hi,
Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
Best wishes,

Kenmore 417.80042990 (10 year old) dryer makes a squeak as it tumbles the clothes dry. Seems to be worse as the clothes get dryer. FYI-the felt was replaced about 4 years ago, not sure it's that. But...


this is a frigidaire made dryer with kenmores name on it. The drum bearing needs more grease. You really need to know what your doing before you take that job on yourself. Its easy for me...but I have been doing it for 20 years and thats the way I role

Dryer not drying sufficiently


Clean out the vent air lines. If partially blocked or bent/kinked will cause this.

Clothes smell like gas


STOP USING THE DRYER AND CALL A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON TO TEST ALL GAS LINE CONNECTIONS WITHIN THE UNIT!

A gas leak can cause a fire in your home. Although, we have always used a gas dryer, and the clothes do have a fresher smell to them than an electric dryer. Any gas which may be in the area would be consumed when the gas flame was burning as normally the pilot remains lit throughout the drying cycle.

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes


sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue

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:)

Electrolux washer/ dryer dryer not heating


Actually on most models there are thermal fuses (nonresetable) that do shut only the heater down but on yours it shuts the entire machine down so it sounds like either you dont have 230v to the unit (what i mean is it is common for one line to have burned out either on the terminal block where the cord is attached or in the home wiring the washer and dryer motor will work because all that only needs one line to work) or the heater )the element) is bad. Tear down is not very easy since its a stackable.
