Default Drum lip on dryer has become so sharp, it's cutting the drum glide and bracket
Model Number: sgd4606aww   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years

Someone put some very wet, very heavy clothes into our dryer. Almost immediately it started to make a grinding noise. After taking the dryer apart, I could see metal dust at the bottom of the machine, just below one of the cylinder glide brackets. I could see that both the dryer glide and felt pad was broken/missing on that same cylinder glide bracket. I could also feel that our dryer drum had an extremely sharp edge around the outside, presumably the thing that was causing the grinding noise and the metal dust (the dryer drum against the metal cylinder glide bracket).

I replaced both the dryer glide and felt pad, reassembled, and ran the dryer. It ran quietly and somewhat successfully, until we put clothes in. Almost immediately it began making the grinding noise. So, I took it apart again, and now, I see that one of the cylinder glide brackets is almost completely cut in two, a result of the very sharp edge of the dryer drum, cutting through the bracket.

So, my question is, do I need a whole new drum or did I replace the glides wrong or is there something else at play here all together?

Help!

denman is a name known to all
Default

I cannot find any info on this unit.
Are you sure it is not a sdg4606aww and not sgd.

Below are parts for a sdg.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/pa...del_id=5172909

So, my question is, do I need a whole new drum or did I replace the glides wrong or is there something else at play here all together?
Without being there I cannot say.
If you click on the part's picture a new page will open often with more views perhaps seeing the actual part will help you decide.
