Clothes take a long time to dry. How can I tell if my drum seal is bad?
Answer Hello William. You will have to remove the drum to inspect the seals. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.

Can I use this Felt seal on my Whirlpool Thin Twin? if so how do I go about taking the drum out of the dryer? Thank you!
Answer Hello Ameen,
For the model number you listed, you will need to order part number 3359587 for the lower seal and the upper seal uses the front bearing and seal kit 279264.
Is the rear drum seal the same as the one on the front of the dryer?
Answer Hello Shaunna. Yes, the front and rear felt seal is the same felt seal 280114.
The rear seal came off. I've ordered the replacement but will it damage the dryer if I run it without the rear seal?
Answer Hello Mary,
Do not run the dryer without the seal on it! This will damage the drum and the rear bulkhead. This would be a very costly repair!
How do I replace the rear drum felt seal? Do I need to take anything apart? Thx.
Answer Mary, Yes, you will have to take the dryer apart and remove the tumbler. The seal needs to be glued to the outer surface of the tumbler with "hi temp" adhesive, which comes with the seal. If you can supply us with a model number, we can supply some nmore information. It's not that hard a repair to perform. Thanks
