is this like soot? or is it more like a grease?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
it is like soot but hard on the surface
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
is this all over the back of the drum or just one area?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It is all over the door and some of the back of the drum.
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
thats strange because there is nothing black in this dryer (no black felts, or seals ) that could cause this, this is a gas dryer its seems like it may be burning to rich and you getting the soot from that. the dryer will bake this hard. I'm not really sure, never heard of your problem before and this is all i can think of, i think you should call a service tech to check this. if its not burning correctly it could be dangerous. thats all i can do, thanks Bryan
