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.
I just purchased a felt seal for my RCA/GE dryer, but it keeps sliding out. How do I get it to stay in place? Thanks.
Answer Hello Dave. If the tabs are not holding the felt seal WE9M10 in place, you can use a little high temperature adhesive Y055980 to glue it to the front. Hope this helps.
