Three issues going on and need to know what to buy. First- felt in front and rear is torn and hanging out. Second- Leaving black marks on all the clothes. Third- when dryer on making a thumping noise like a shoe is in there.
Answer Hello Bill,
To address the first two issues at the same time, if the seal 33001807 is worn, the clothes will get caught where the seal shouold be taking up the slack. This is where the black marks are coming from. The clunking is most likely a failed drum roller 12001541. A bad drum roller will also contribute to the gap where the drum seal is located and cause the unit to catch clothes more often.
My Maytag Gas dryer is now leaving black marks of the same exact size on any white colored clothes that are dried in it. What could this be???
Answer Hello Eli. It sounds like the rollers and the felt seals will need to be replaced on the unit. If bad, they will cause the issue you are having with the unit.
Dryer makes a rattling sound as the drum rotates. My gues is the rollers need replaced. What is the best way to get to and replace roller wheels for an electric dryer?
Answer Bill, Most if not all electric dryers will require removing the front of the dryer, the drum, and the front bulkhead to access the internal components of the dryer. If you can get us a model number and an e mail address, we'll be more than happy to supply any information you need to service your dryer.
20 yr old electric dryer makes a rhythmic thumping noise.
Answer Derek, Besides checking and/or replacing the drum rollers (there are two 2 ) 12001541 You will also want to check and make sure theres nothing stuck in or to the drum seals, check the drum and front drum glides for excessive wear.allowing the seam in the drum to make a noise on the drum glides.
