From what you are describing you will need to pull the front panel off & replace the front drum support bearing. The front drum bearing is what the weight of the drum rides on.

The Teflon pads have worn down causing a gap between the drum & the front support; this is where the clothes get caught and are causing the symptoms you described.

The only way to know for sure is to access the drum & inside cabinet area of the dryer so you can inspect the suspected components.

First, disconnect power to the dryer.

The four images below will assist with accessing and identifying the parts.

Slide the dryer out about 12 inches so when you lift the top panel it will rest against the wall. Use a putty knife to release the spring clips #7 holding down the top to the front. Lift the top up & rest it against the wall. reach in & disconnect the door switch wires making note of the terminal locations. Remove the 2 screws holding the front to the sides. Lift the drum slightly while pulling the complete front panel forward & upwards lifting the lower section off the clips #64 on the frame. You will now have complete access to the front drum support #20, part number; 5303937139.

The part you received appears to be incorrect and can be returned for credit.

The cost of doing these repairs yourself is minimal. The part with the felt glides,# 5303937139 is priced at $31.86. You can order here; Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel comfortable doing these repairs, you can schedule a Sears technician here: Sears Home Services . You would add the cost of a trip charge and labor. They can provide the trip charge based on zip code.

I hope this information helps clear the situation up and helps with the dryer repair. If further help is needed, please reply back for more information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question.

• I am sorry that you are having problems with your dryer. I know how inconvenient it can be to not be able to dry clothes when you need to.

• First REMOVE POWER from the dryer.

• To access the thermal limiter you will need the lift the top of the dryer.

• Locate the gap in the front of the dryer between the top panel and the front panel.

• Use a flat tool like a putty knife to slide in the crack about 2 ½ inches in from each side of the cabinet. Push in and lift up on the top, like the hood on a car and lay back against the wall.

• To locate the thermal limiter, look on the right hand back corner, on the inside back wall just to the left of where the power cord attaches to the terminal block. It is only about a nickel size, and has two wires attached.

• If you have a Volt/Ohm meter set it to the Ohm scale to check across the two terminals for continuity. Remove one of the wires before you do the check. If the meter shows no continuity it is bad. If you get a reading across the terminals the limiter is good and you have another problem.

• I have sent a picture of the heater panel and hi-limit switch and the thermal limiter above the heater panel.

If you discover the thermal limiter is bad the part number is: 134120900 and you can order this from Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
