Product Description

This is a duct felt seal for a dryer. The duct felt seal allows the front-load dryer drum to glide smoothly on the front panel. Your dryer will not function properly if the drum felt seal is compromised. Disconnect power to the dryer before completing this repair. You will need to remove the front of the dryer to gain access to the felt seal. This felt seal may differ in appearance from your original but will function the same as your original. This is an OEM replacement part that is sourced directly from the authentic manufacturer.

Dark marks on clothing; clothing sticking between drum and front panel
Others with the same problem of dark marks on clothing suggested replacing the white and the grey drum slides that slip into the front drum bearing unit. When I open up the dryer, I did find that both the white and grey drum slides on one side of the front drum bearing piece had completely worn away, and some of the drum bearing piece was also worn away. I had decided in advance to order both white slides, both grey slides, a new felt seal, and the front drum bearing piece. Possibly I could have reused the old front drum bearing, but the replacement was cheap enough. Three bits of advice: 1) if you replace the felt seal, make sure you get it tucked behind the clips on the door panel; 2) if you replace the front drum bearing piece, once you have the dryer put back together, reach up and pull the plastic drum bearing toward you to be sure it is fully snapped into place; 3) after you replace the slides or felt, the drum will make mild rubbing noises as it turns, so run the dryer with no heat for about 30 minutes to seat the parts.

Noisy Dryer
Repair was easy for this housewife! I had no problems, took off top panel, then removed face panel. Slides and felts were easy to find and replace. Seriously took less than 25 minutes total. Videos helped also! Dryer fixed, even better!!!

When recently cleaning my dryer I noticed felt seal was worn.
Opened front door removed screws holding top of dryer on. Removed the top which exposed screws holding front panel on. Removed those screws and carefully pivoted the door to the left being mindful of the wires that are attached. Propped that up against nearby wall removed old gasket put in new one. Screwed front then top back on and gave it a test run. Works perfectly.

Squeaking and clothes getting caught between drum and dryer causing clothes to be damaged.
Removed screws from top and front leaving bottom screws in just loose.Front will lift off lower bottom screws to make reinstall much easier and quicker repair.
