The black stuff on my dryer drum all melted off and was flung around the inside of the dryer. I got it all off with alot of time and elbow grease. I know I need a new drum, but my question is, why did this happen?
Answer Hello Mike. Check and see if the vent got kinked or clogged. If so, it can cause the unit to get to hot and it will release the sounds strips and cause this problem. You will need to replace the tub assembly W10296563. Hope this helps.
If I replace drum rollers which I believe are bad, my felt rings have been torn up will it hurt anything not to replacement the entire drum. I think it is riduculous to replace whole drum just because felt rings have gone bad due to roller failure
Answer Hi Joe. The drum supports have the roller shafts with it. This way they are riding true and square. Drum supports part # W10177428 = 1/ea. You will need 4 of them. The drum part # W10296563, needs to be checked to see if it was welded smoothly where the rollers ran across it ? This may be why there was premature damage or if it was continuously overloaded. The felt is all one piece built into the drum. Thank You.
I just had the drum replaced not to long a go but the felt is coming off. Its been about three months I think.
Answer Hello Diana. You will need to check the rollers W10177428 and the edges where the drum rides. If they are bad, it will cause the felt to come off. You will need to replace the drum W10296563 again. Hope this helps.

Can I buy just the felt ring that is on the edges of the drum?
Answer Hello Chad. No, the manufacture does not offer just the felt ring, you will need to replace the drum assembly W10296563. Hope this helps.
