My dryer had extended problems with a roller years ago and we replaced the broken one, the back felt and the belt. We noticed that the bulkhead was gouged at the time but moved ahead with the repair. Fast forward 8 years. It had been working fantastic. No noise or problems with clothes being pinched causing holes. Now however the dreaded holes in the clothes are back. No noise other than a slight squeek. We checked the rollers and the felt appears fine however the front felt and plastic bearing is looking worn and a clip is broke. What could be the new cause in clothing being pinched creating small holes in lighter weight fabric and some midweight fabric?

ANSWER Hello Marcey. It sounds like the front seal is the problem. If the rollers and rear seals looks good, then it has to be the front.
