dryer help

9 posts in this topic

Our clothes dryer is having issues...the drum seems to be loose, and every time we dry something, some article of clothing gets stuck and gets stained a rust color where it was stuck. is there something I can take apart and fix/replace, or just easier buying a new one??

You will need to order the felt replacement around the door.I just ordered the upper and lower felt for my dryer.Same symptoms as yours.I replaced my lower felt in 2002.Turn your clothes inside out while drying until you get your new felt. $48 with shipping for the parts.

I have a white westinghouse gas dryer.The top pops up and then theres 2 screws for the front side panel.Those 2 screws are on the inside edge.You have to unhook a couple of wires from the front door.Thens its just a matter of removing and reglueing on the felt.
