Lower Felt we9m10. Does this actually support the drum? If it is vital for bearing of the drum, I'd like to consider replacing, but I do not know exactly what it is for except to help guide the rotation. Is that right?
Answer Hello Rick,
The lower seal is important for air flow. If it is worn, the heat, lint, and moisture will go back into the cabinet of the unit, causing electrical and mechanical parts to fail prematurely. It also keeps the drum from catching clothing.
