Should the lint filter have either a felt or rubber gasket? Our lint filter lacked a gasket when the machine was new, and excessive lint is coming out the exhaust. Sears, where we bought the dryer, has suggested that our filter was missing this part. Please advise.
There is not a felt seal around the dryer lint filter. The lint filter will only be able to collect a certain amount of lint and the exhaust would need to be cleaned out periodically.
