Default me too

I also have a Frigidaire,however a different model. This same thing is happening to me. Very loud grinding noises from time to time. It is also starting to create "snag" holes in some of the clothing. Often there will be clothes stuck between the drum and the internal frame. Getting ready to tear apart, thought I'd check here first. Thanks, Brian

jake--go check out the "frigidaire electric dryer" post on jan. 19 on page 8. I'm guessing this is our problem. Gene???? How hard is this repair---enjoy doing things myself, but haven't ever venture down this path before. Thanks

Hmmm, sounds like the same problem I have.. I think it's the felt glide assembly. I have a Fridgidaire FDG855RH. I came on here for verification, because I am not sure if I need the bottom felt. There are 2 parts listed that go around the drum in the front, parts 20 and 21 I think for this model. But yes, when you buy new clothes and wash them and they come out with brown shit marks on them, it's frustrating.

Can someone verify for me that I need the felt and if so should I get the bottom piece also?

Try this link, shows pictures of the repair
http://********.com/2005/03/field-no...ryer-front.htm

There usually is a top felt piece and a bottom glide.. Fridgidaire should stick to refrigerators.. oh no, they stink too.

Well the link didn't come out.
Go to ******** dot com
In the search type in 'Leaves marks on clothes'
scroll to like the third result where it mentions in the description about burn marks in the clothes

Default Maytag DG312, same problem. Repair estimate?

Similar to the complaints in this thread, our Maytag DG312 has this problem.

I read somewhere else (heh, lost URL...) that special riveting tools were needed to repair a grinding sound while drying, leaving marks on clothes...

We've had this thing for 20 years. Did its job until this.

Should we "upgrade" and fork over for a new unit rather than face a repair estimate and further delay?

When I first got this problem I took the dryer a part, thoroughly cleaned it. It drys faster now, but still G-R-I-N-D-S and today my wife pointed to marks on clothes attributable to the dryer.

What's it going to cost? Buying special riveting tools sounds expensive for a one time job.

Looking forward to advice.

Default Dryer Drum Growls

I have placed a very complete repair that I did to my MayTag DG312 gas dryer to cure the growling on my home website. Use a search engine for "Maytag Dryer DG312 Repair on 2008-05-11". I saved about $100 by anyone's measure. The website is io.com / ~cjwyche / current.html
