I am looking for the Felt Seal for this model. I need both ends. I was looking at the 37001132 dryer drum felt seal. Will this work or do you have another suggestion? Thanks, Ron
Answer Hello Ron! No, the dryer drum felt seal 37001132 is not listed for your model MDE9700AYW. According to the model number supplied the drum felt seals are not available separately from the drum assembly itself, part number W10296563. Thanks!
My dryer always squeaked a lot since we got it from my mother-in-law, but it has gotten significantly worse. What can it be and how can I fix it? Thanks!
Answer Hello Gabriel,
This will be the drum rollers (AP4046756) and/or the idler pulley (AP4291235). If the roller brackets (AP4048635) are worn, the will need to be replaced also. They can be flipped once to put the worn flat places on the bottom If they do not have flat places worn on them, you can wipe them off with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol to make sure they are not "sticky" from the fabric softener sheet residue. Do the same on the Idler pulley shaft.
I'm getting rusty looking streaks on our clothing from the dryer. It appears to be coming from around the felt drum seals. Is this a common problem? Will it come back over time if we replace the seals?
Answer Hello Ann,
I would change both drum seals Y055980, the drum glides 37001298 and the drum rollers 37001042. These are the items responsible for holding the drum straight and will keep the clothes from getting caught as long as nothing else is bent or malformed. The adhesive used for the seals is part number Y055980. If the glides are worn away, the felts 500092 under the glides may need to be replaced. If any of these parts need to be lubricated, be sure to use either baby powder or corn starch. Never use a wet lubricant, as this will make lint stick and be pulled into bushings and parts will fail faster than they would if they weren't lubricated at all.
