Default Drum Seal Replacement
Model Number: MDE2500AYW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Maytag dryer was making screeching sounds. After removing the front assembly I found the felt drum seal was torn at the top where the 2 ends come together. I also found one of the tabs used to hold the seal in place had broken off and may have been causing the drum noise. I reassembled the dryer, forcing the seal in place, and it is now running quietly.

But I may still need to replace the seal - so I have two questions:

First, can I simply replace the felt seal using the remaining tabs or do I need to replace the front bulk head as well?

If I replace the seal, do I bend the tabs slightly to get the seal under them and then bend them back? I don't want to fatigue the metal tabs.

Thanks, Ken
