Electric Dryer Tearing Clothes Up

If your Electric Dryer is tearing up your clothes Check the Following

Not all dryers use all of the parts listed below we try to cover most models


Rollers

Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear and front of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.


Rear seal

Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace the seal.


Front glides

Your dryer may use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set. Check the bearing housing. If the glides have worn through it may have damaged the bearing retainer.


Front seal

Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.
