The drum flange has sheared off. Do I need to replace the drum completely or is it a seperate part?
Answer Hello Charles,
If the front edge of the drum 134138400 is worn away, since this supports the front of the drum, the complete drum will have to be replaced as it will wear out the front drum support. A couple of other parts that will require attention are the front felt glide assembly 5303937139 and the drum bearing and shaft 5303281153. Also while your in there, look at the back of the drum for burned spots in a circular pattern. If there are any, you should check the heating element 131475320 for any damage because when the front of the drum sags too low, the rear of the drum will sometimes contact the heating element and damage it.
My dryer is scorching my clothes. It leaves straight brown lines randomly, especially on sheets and towels, but on clothes too. We can no longer use it, so would really appreciate your advice as soon as possible!
Answer Hello Maryann. Based on the information you provided, you will need to replace the front felt seal 5303937139 and the rear bearing 5303281153 in the unit. They are bad, and the clothes are getting caught between the drum and causing the marks on them.
Does the drum assembly come with felt allready installed on drum?
Answer Hello Jack. No, the felt has to be installed on the front panel for the drum 134138400. Hope this helps.
