Frigidaire Gallery Heavy Duty Front Load Dryer problem

We have a Frigidaire Gallery front load dryer which has a couple of issues- it squeals loudly sometimes continually and sometimes randomly. Also, clothes get what look like burn marks even when running on low heat or just air cycles. Any ideas as to what is wrong?

Thanks

    I have the same problem. It seems like clothes get stuck in the dryer (on the side with the door) and then get the "burn" marks.

    I have the same problem with the burn marks and items getting trapped in the gap between the drum and the door. It's really starting to eat our clothes too. Someone mentioned it might be the nylon bushings, but how can I fix the problem myself? I'm very handy. Any advice? Thanks

    Our dryer begins squealing loudly after a minute or two from being turned on.

It's probably the nylon bushings that the drum rides on. they wear out and the drum rides directly on the pad that the bushings attach to.

Our fridgidaire gallery dryer squeals very loud for about the first 5 minutes of being on then quietly finishes it's job. It does this with each new load.


You could have a belt that is slipping on the heavy load of clothes when you first start the dryer, if so you may need to replace your belt.
Your problem sounds like drum rollers is in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

How remove wash machine top


On these machines there are no screws holding the top down, get under it and pop it up using a tool that won't scratch the finish.
First I would try removing the front panel to see if it could be done through the front. Its only held by two screws in the bottom.
Good Luck

Burn marks on clothing


The front felt drum seal may be bad. It is attached to the front panel, around the door.
Check and or replace the rear drum support it has worn down the ball and cup support. It will soon begin making a grinding/squealing noise.
When it wears and drops down the gap is greater at the front around the felt seal. Laundry gets caught in the gap and scorches.
