Q:

What is causing brown streaks on light clothing? 11066924501 Kenmore Elite Residential dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is leaking brown streaks on your clothes. I did look into the model number you have provided, and I have found information to assist you. 

Usually, when you are seeing brown streaks, it means that the felt seals around the dryer are dirty. You can attempt to clean the seals, but it is recommended to replace the seals so you do not run into another issue down the road.

Q:

Brown streaks on light clothing 110-66924501

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your clothes are getting brown streaks from your dryer. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you. 

When you start getting brown streaks on your clothes you will need to either replace the felt seals or clean then. It is recommended to replace the seals so you start over new and fresh. 

3390732 is the door seal with adhesive 279368- this one can be cleaned
280114 seal- this is the felt seal that can cause the brown streak

It is recommended to replace both seals to prevent the brown stains. 


HOW TO REPPLACE DRUM SEALS:

1.  Please be safe and first disconnect the power cord and pull the dryer at least 6 inches or so foreward.

2.  Remove the screws holding the back of the top panel in place.  Pull the top panel back and up to remove it.  May have to use something like a putty knife under the seam along the front of the cabinet for the panel.  Pull up on the handle of the knife to release the top panel away from the cabinet piece.

3. Lift the top of the dryer off the cabinet.  Place the top, control panel piece, and lean the top against the wall behind the dryer.

4.  Take out the screws from the top front corners.  Pull the wire harness that connects the door switch to the rest of the dryer and set it apart someplace safe.  

5.   Look inside the dryer and underneath the right side of the drum to find the pulley holding the tension on the dryers drum.  Think about taking a digital photo showing the way the drum belt threads around the pulley so you will remember when you have to reinstall it.

6.   Push the idler pulley away from the drum and will release the tension.  Pull the belt away from the idler pulley then from the motor pulley.

7.   Grab the belt at the top of the drum with one hand.  Grab the drum with the other hand.  Pull the drum straight out of the dryer cabinet.

8.   Pull off the rear seal.  The seal probably wont come off easy in one piece, might leave bits and pieces along the edge of the drum.   Use some fine grit sandpaper to remove any of the seal particles left.  Wipe the edge of the drum clean with a liquid adhesive remover.   Wipe the drum dry with some paper towels.

9.   Position the seal where the edge with the stitchin faces the front of the drum.   Apply a vhin coat of high-heat adhesive to the drum along the exterior edge.

10.  Press the new drum seal into the adhesive.   There is a small lip on the underside of the seal that sits against the outer edgeof the drum and helps you install the seal evenly on the rear of the drum.  Allow the high-heat adhesive to dry for about 2 hours.

11.  Do both seals then put belt back on and reverse the project to put everything back together.

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.
