Two of three plastic glides on the upper drum glide had broken off and the lower seal had discolored and was leaving short skinny brown stains on clothes.
The upper drum guide and lower drum seal were replaced using instructions from your videos. I recommend replacing both the drum glide and drum seal together; doesn't make sense to replace one and not the other, particularly on older models. I used a Universal Adhesive Cleaner (for removing automotive & RV decal glues; I had some left over from removing decals/glue off our RV) obtained at my local NAPA Auto Parts (Part #4070) which made removing the old parts and glue cleanup much easier. Simple apply sufficient solvent to saturate the felts, allow to stand 15-20 minutes then easily peel off the old felts. I used a 3" diameter wire wheel in my drill to quickly remove any remaining glue residue. There are probably other solvents that could be used in lieu of the Universal Adhesive Cleaner; the key is to use a solvent that will soften the old glue which which makes removing the felts and glue cleanup much easier. Be sure to wear solvent resistant gloves during this phase of the replacement process.

Clothes kept getting ugly town spots and some got caught in the edge of the drum
Looked up on the web and found a parts list and a video showing the process of replacement of the drum seals. I ordered on line, received the parts within three days and spent a morning opening up the dryer, removing the old seals and gluing the new ones on, then reassembling the dryer. It works perfectly. What I found in addition was a huge buildup of lint in the blower channel. Removed all that, vacuumed the inside and it's as good as new. NOTE: you don't have to order an extra tube of glue. One comes with the parts. Bruce

Clothes were getting burn marks and sometimes getting caught between drum and frame
I'm one of those guys who doesn't unplug an appliance before working on it. In this case, I should have. My wrist touched the back of the timer control when replacing the sheet metal screw on that side of the front panel, and I felt a sharp tingle that let me know I was part of a live circuit. My quick reaction caused my wrist to graze a sharp edge on the dryer frame. Just a bit of blood lost; only a flesh wound. Anyway, the enclosed instructions were very good, though I did go on line to see the exact location of the metal clips that secure the top of the machine.

Dryer was making a lot of noise and putting marks or holes in everything.
I watched your how to videos and it was that easy. The whole job took less than 15 minutes. After the glue dried I ran a load of clothes and it was like my dryer was brand new again. Follow the videos and you won't go wrong.

Load squeaking coming from rear of drum area.
I watched the video on the page where I ordered the parts from and it was straight forward on what needed to be done. Only addition was to grease the pylley wheel shaft by sliding it off, cleaning it and reinstall with fresh grease. It all went well and no more noise!!

The dryer was leaving brown marks on clothing
The repair was easy; it took longer for the glue to dry than it did to make the repair. I disconnected the electricity and opened up the top lid of the dryer. I then removed the front panel by removing two screws and two retainer clips. I pulled the old felt off by hand. A putty knife, wire brush and sandpaper cleaned the surface. After vacuuming up the residue, I applied the glue and used adjustable clamps to hold the upper drum glide in place. Once that was dry, I glued down the lower drum seal. I allowed it to dry fully over night and then assembled the dryer. It works like new.

Dryer was making brown marks.
Step 1- Removed all screws holding front and slanted panel above the washer. Step 2- removed two screws holding control panel. Step 3- removed screws holding 2nd galvanized panel under slanted panel. Step 4- unplug door switch wire. Step 5- removed door panel for scraping off old glide & seal. Step 6- make sure you do upper drum glide scraping & replacing of glide before scraping off lower seal. Reason for doing that is to make sure glide & seal wind up in the same place. Step 7- replaced all parts. To make it easy I found by screwing the 4 top screws first I was able to align the drum in the door panel. Everything works great no more brown spots. Ken- FL

Small tears,permanent brown stains left on clothing, and severe squealing.
I watched the videos on this repair from this site. I shut off the power to the dryer first. Using a putty knife I slipped it under the top of the dryer between the top and front panel and raised the top. Next I removed the two Phillip screws that secured the front cover, then leaned the cover forward a little and used a pair of pliers to disconnect the door switch, after which I slid the front panel off of the cabinet. I matched the new upper drum glide to the old one and removed the old upper drum glide,I cleaned off the old glue and left over material with a putty knife and a paint/rust remover tool that I had picked up from the auto parts store. I applied the high temperature adhesive to the arch and replaced the upper drum glide. Next I performed the same procedure to replace the front lower drum seal. I used clothe pins to hold the seals in place while the glue dried. I let the seals dry over night. The next thing was to inspect the drum support bearing, I found that the bearing had severely worn the ball and melted the nylon bearing, so I replaced the complete drum support kit because of the excessive wear that I found upon inspection. I t was a little difficult replacing the ball shaft because I had no help,I had a hard time reaching around the drum to get the screws started, Once I finished with that I replaced the grounding ball, I used the high temperature grease to hold the grounding ball in place while I replaced the screws that fastened the drum support bearing, then replaced the drum and belt assembly. When that was finished I vacuumed all of the lint out of the cabinet replaced the front cover, connected the door switch, lowered and secured the top. My dryer works like new again, and it doesn't take as long to dry the laundry as it has before I replaced the front lower seal and upper drum glide, Thanks !!!

Clothes were getting caught on edge of drum also holes in bath towels
Followed video provided by site. After turning off power and disconnecting wires to front panel I removed the front panel. Used pliers to pull off old guide leave old seal on for now to help position top guide. I found a wood chisel worked best for removing old glue. After applying the glue provided with parts I installed top guide and added clamps to both ends and center so it didn't lift off glue. let dry for 5 hours. Removed lower drum seal scraped old glue off put new glue on and installed new seal bring both ends up to meet felt on top guide. Added clamps to both ends and two additional spots to get a good seal with glue. Leave clamps on for 5 hours. Reinstalled front panel reconnected plug for wires.

Slight grinding noise and cloths snagging between drum and glide
Make sure the dryer is unplugged or power supply is turned off if hardwired. Open dryer top first... use a thin flathead screwdriver to release 2 front clips between front panel and dryer top one on each side. Remove front panel next... unplug two electric plugs located at top right of dryer frame. Remove two screws with Phillips head screwdriver one on each side of dryer inside dryer frame at the top of front panel. Pull front panel away from the dryer frame at the top and lift panel off the two clips at the bottom of dryer frame. Use wire brush/scraper to remove old drum glide and glue. Mine was 14 years old and cooked on pretty good so I used "goof off" adhesive remover and it came off easily. Wipe surface down with damp cloth then dry before applying new glue. The supplied adhesive bonds quickly but I let it dry for an hour before reassembly. Take the time to clean the inside of dryer and drum while you have the thing apart and waiting for the glue to dry. Reassemble and you are good to go.
