Kenmore 94802 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer Logo
david piazza Posted on May 01, 2007

Snaged clothes I've been getting snagged clothes. Not sure if it's the washer of dryer. I have run my hand throughout and see nothing sharp. My knit running tops are having multiple pulls. I notice my white towels have snags, although hard to see, and also one of my hanky's has a few pulls. Help!

Check the lint trap on the dryer. We had the same problem and it was because we put the lent trap in backwards.

We have a Kenmore Elite washing machine (about 14 years old) and just recently I noticed that clothing that's been washed has multiple snags throughout the garment (all types of fabrics).

Look for something like a screw either stuck in the little holes or one of the screws next to the lint filter in the front. Most likely you’ve got something stuck in one little holes in it snag saying says it tumbles would be my thought. A way to check is take a rag put a glove on your hands so you won’t get cut and rub around inside to see if you feel the rag snag. Hope this helps

My frigidaire dryer snags clothing on the lint screen. How can I stop this?

Hello Vincent Jones, thank you for your inquiry!

From what you have described your clothing is getting snagged on the lint screen inside of your Frigidaire dryer. You may need to replace your lint screen and filter. I would make sure to check for any cracks or damages that could cause your clothes to get snagged. If you do not see any damage you may want to check the inside of the tub using an old towel or pair of hose to assure there is no internal damage. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt


Electrolux gas dryer snagging clothes

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux gas dryer, model# EIGD55HIW, is snagging and tearing your clothes. There is a possibility that the temperature is too high and you are overdrying your clothes. Make sure to dry your clothes on the correct temperatures and correct times. The other possibility is, the finish inside of your dryer has been scratched or chipped. This can cause a snagging or tearing of clothes. To prevent further scratching and chipping of the drum finish, make sure to always remove any foreign objects from pockets before laundering, as well as make sure zippers and fasteners are not hitting the inside of the drum. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

First thing to check is the drum alignment to be sure that it has not shifted from wear. Open the door and reach in and see if you can move the drum up and down or side to side (not spinning) but pressing on it. IF you can then it needs to have some guides replaced. However if it is tight then you need to get a drier sheet or something similar and run it along every inch of that tub and the paddles and the back to see if it snags on something.

Hi there, I'm hoping somebody can help me out? I have a washer/dryer and the dryer is not working. The drum rotates but does not heat up and the clothes are still very damp/wet Whilst the washer...

There are several reasons why a dryer would not heat up the clothes.
  1. The vent is plugged with lint or the blower set-screw is loose (blower slips on the motor shaft instead of spinning full speed). If you do not have good airflow at the outside exhaust when the dryer is running, you'll need to check the ductwork all the way back to the lint trap. If the lint trap is torn, repair or replace it.
  2. The heaters are not working due to a bad contact in the timer or one of the two thermostats. Check for continuity in the heater circuit with the dryer unplugged.
  3. The heaters are burned out. Note the plural - most dryers have two heaters, one for low heat, the other for medium, and both for high. Try a different heat setting and see if you get warm air. If you do, the heater you normally use is the problem.
