The dryer leaves brown marks/stains on some clothes.  I could not tell where it is coming from until a piece of clothing was left stuck to the front part of the drum after the drying cycle.  I pulled out the clothing and sure enough it had a brown stain on it.  I also ran a small piece of cloth around the drum and got the same stain.

1. How do I fix this problem?  Does it require a new part?

2. Where can I find instructions on how to disassemble the front part of the dryer?  I cannot locate a forum entry on the same exact dryer.

Thank you.

How do I remove the front panel and how do I replace the errant parts?

I assume I need to purchase both items.

Thanks.

Quick question:

I have not had the chance to replace the felt and glide components but only have used the dryer sparingly.

Now the dryer does not get warm at all. Is this problem related to the felt and glide issue?

Thanks in advance.

Probably not. Confirm that you have 220 VAC at the terminal block where the power cord attaches. If so then you probably have a bad heating element.

Not good with electronics but it the dryer turns but does not get hot, does that mean it is connected to 220?

Your dryer is connected to a 220VAC outlet (unless this is a gas dryer). The dryer will run with only 110V but has to have 220V to heat. Check your circuit breaker (should be a double 30 ) cut if of and back on then try the dryer again.

I have a gas dryer.

I just also cleaned out the vent but the dryer still does not have heat.

And just to confirm again, the fact that the felt seal may be shot is a separate problem?

I only ask because the following diagram states that that the felt seal must be in good condition for the dryer to heat properly.

It won't stop your dryer from heating, but it will allow air to escape under certain conditions causing the air flow to be misdirected maybe blowing a fuse or limiter. At this point you have 2 seperate issues. The no heat could be caused by the seal yes, but repairing the seal alone will not correct the. No heat problem.

Now are you sure the dryer isn't heating or is it just taking along time to dry?

I just tested it again.

Heat does not kick in. Here's something which may help diagnose the problem - maybe. Before the dryer stopped heating, heat would sometimes kick in and sometimes not. At first, the regular heat stopped working. Then perm press would work around 50% of the time. By this I meant, I would run it only to find clothes to still be wet. I would then try it a second time and the heat would kick in this time. Ultimately (now), no heat kicks in.

Just out of curiosity, I watched my gas utility meter before testing the dryer just now. Before starting the dryer, meter was not running (made sure no one was cooking!). I then ran the dryer and the meter was not moving.

Your going to have to tear into the unit and do some voltage and continuity checks. You could have a bad fuse, ignitor, or coils. No way to know without doing some checks

Are there any existing posts that illustrate in detail what I should be testing for?

Thanks for all the detective work so far by the way.

I look forward to your post.

By the way, I just tried the dryer again. This time it worked BUT just once. The heat kicked in and I let the dryer do its job with the clothes.

It will not do it again. Perhaps something is loose.

In any case, I'd appreciate your help.
