Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

I recently replaced the felt lining around the back side of the drum lip. It lasted about a month, and the lining has come off again. There's no sign of any residue from the adhesive that came with the lining, as the "flap" that received the adhesive has been ground into lint. The adhesive tube says not to use or store at temps above 100. I had assumed "do not use" meant only while only while it's wet, as the dryer surely gets hotter than that. There is no indication of how long to allow for curing, though it sets very quickly. Any advice?

ANSWER Hello Alex, If the dryer is ducted properly, the adhesive should not have an issue working at the temperatures produced inside the unit. As far as the seal being "ground to lint", this sounds like you have a sharp place rubbing against the seal. This will cause problems and you will need to identify where the drum is contacting. The front drum roller should be checked since it will allow the tub to lean forward if worn abnormally. The rear rollers should also be checked. If the drum acts like it has too much resistance with the belt off, you could have other parts of the cabinet or supports, (bulkhead or bracket), damaged. As far as the curing time for the adhesive, 24 hours is sufficient.
