Does this gasket/seal require an adhesive for installation, and if so, what is your part number for it? Also, is there a gasket for the heating element assembly where it mounts into the rear drum panel, or is this a metal-to-metal joint? If a gasket is available for this joint, please provide me with a part number for this as well. I gave you a lot to do! Thanks in advance for your help! Curt.

I wish to order a lint seal for my dryer (#73) But when I put that in it comes up 339956 AP32387. When I check compatible it says it doesn't match but doesn't give me the correct part either. Can you assist. Thank you.

Hello again. I tested my dryer out, not with wet pillowcases but with 4 wet hand towels. I did not dry them fully dry (maybe 80%) but the airflow out of the vent was relatively consistent except for one long period that lasted at least 10 seconds where no air was coming out (I ran back into the house at that point to check on the dryer and by the time I ran back out the air was coming out fine.) Today I did a load of 2 twin sheets, 3 twin pillowcases and some heavier cotton T-shirts and shorts. I first dried the heavier items with 2 pillowcases (I added the cases to make sure the load wouldn't be too small to tumble properly) and the airflow was relatively good; there were definitely some pauses, though, where no air was flowing out of the vent. Then I took out the cases and did the still damp shirts and shorts with the 2 sheets. It seemed like every other second the air was not flowing out of the vent. I noticed that this caused the outside of the door to get considerably hotter than usual. I opened the door many times (at least 10) and all of those times, nothing was stuck to the grill and everything was tumbling well. The foil vent was jerking constantly (which I have learned corresponded to the airflow being blocked.) I then took out the sheets to finish drying the shirts and shorts and the airflow was much better and the door was considerably cooler. I don't know if the material of the sheets is causing the problem or a fuller load causes a problem. But there definitely seems to be a problem. The question is, is it something I did while trying to get rid of lint from my vent and/or dryer or putting on the foam seals. Any help would be most appreciated because I am at a loss. I really don't want to operate the dryer if it is dangerous to do so. Thank you.

Latest Questions

I do appreciate your trying to diagnose my problem. Looking at the drum in my dryer, I think it would be rare for a garment to stick to the holes of the exhaust grille because that is set back from the area with the baffles that tumbles the clothes. It seems that the dryer is designed to prevent any sticking from happening on a consistent basis. I don't see how 1 of the 4 dry pillowcases would consistently stick to it. Do you have any other ideas as to what could be causing this interrupted air flow? Anything that I may have done while cleaning the vent, lint housing or replacing the seals? Thank you. In other words, if the airflow was interrupted every few seconds for the whole dryer time, what would be the likelihood that a garment was sticking to it all of those times?

Thank you for responding. When I put the new seal around the blower wheel, I removed all the lint/dust from between the blades. Nothing seemed amiss with the wheel. If there had been something wrong with the wheel, wouldn't there be a problem with the airflow when the dryer is empty? Why would putting a few dry pillowcases in the drum make a difference in the airflow? Thanks

A few weeks ago, I cleaned out my dryer vent for the first time in over ten years. (I know, it was overdue.) A week later, I removed the lint housing to clean the lint from that area. I noticed that the seal around the exhaust grille was messed up but just put the housing back. In the interim I purchased a new seal for the lint housing and also for the blower wheel because I wasn't sure what kind of condition that was in. We put the new ones on yesterday; a lot of disintegrated seal had accumulated in the back of the dryer which I vacuumed. My question is as follows: I would assume at this point that my dryer is reasonably lint free inside. However, I noticed that when the dryer is empty, there is a nice, consistent airflow that I feel outside my house coming out of my vent, but when there are clothes in the dryer (wet or dry- I tested it out with a just a few pillowcases) the airflow is intermittent. It will be strong for a few seconds, then weak for a second or so before becoming strong again. My metal foil venting also moves around a lot more (in kind of a jerking fashion) when there are clothes inside the dryer than when the dryer is empty. I’m not sure, but it may be that the outside of the door gets hotter – maybe too hot with items inside. I cannot compare this to how it was before I did this work because I had never felt the airflow outside before hand and the dryer was a lot closer to the wall so the vent would not have had the freedom to move so much even if it had wanted to. In fact the jerking motion of the vent may have started after we just cleaned the duct – I had thought that it was a good thing because it meant more airflow! Is the fact that the airflow is not consistently strong a problem? I went to my sister’s house- she has a different dryer and venting, but her airflow was consistently strong.) Is there anything that I did that could have caused it? Why is the airflow okay when the dryer is empty? Thanks
