Whirlpool Dryer damaging clothes

Common solutions for: Whirlpool Dryer damaging clothes

01 - Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad
The drum glides (also called slides) might be worn out. The drum glides are small plastic pieces that support the front of the dryer drum. As the drum rotates, it slides on these plastic pieces. Over time, the drum glides wear out. If the drum glides are worn out, the dryer will usually make noise and the drum will drop down and have a wider gap at the bottom allowing clothes to get caught in the gap. To determine if the drum glides are worn out, inspect them for wear. If one or more glides are ...worn out, replace all of the glides as a set.

03 - Drum Roller
One or more of the drum rollers might be worn out. Many dryers have two drum support rollers on the rear of the drum, and some dryers have two more rollers supporting the front of the drum. When the drum rollers are worn out, they can cause the dryer to make a loud rumbling noise and if worn badly the drum will drop down and have a wider gap at the bottom allowing clothes to get caught in the gap. To determine if the rollers are worn out, inspect the rollers. If one or more of the rollers are se...verely worn, we recommend replacing all of the rollers at the same time as a preventative measure (The roller shaft can often be reused if it is in good condition. Clean the shaft thoroughly before installing the new rollers).

04 - Drum Roller Axle
One or more of the drum roller axles might be worn out. Most dryers have two drum support rollers on the rear of the drum, and some dryers have two more rollers, supporting the front of the drum. Over time, the drum rollers and axles wear out, causing a loud rumbling noise and the drum to drop down and have a wider gap at the bottom allowing clothes to get caught in the gap. To determine if the drum roller axles are worn out, remove the belt from the dryer and try turning the drum by hand. If th...e drum does not rotate freely, check the support rollers for wear. If the rollers spin freely without wobbling, the axles do not need to be replaced. If a roller wobbles and/or does not spin freely, we recommend replacing all of the axles and rollers as a preventative measure.

06 - Felt Seal
Felt seals are used to keep the hot air from escaping from around the drum. Depending on the model you may only see one around the front or one around the front and one at the rear of the drum. If the felt seal gets torn or is missing, clothes can get caught inbetween the drum and the outer housing often called a "shroud". Open the door and inspect the felt seals for damage and replace them if necessary.
