My Frigidaire stack unit dryer is leaving marks on my

Customer Question
My Frigidaire stack unit...

My Frigidaire stack unit dryer is leaving marks on my clothes. Is this a felt belt issue? If so how do I replace that? Is there a video that will show me specifically for a stack unit?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The model number is ***** I'm not sure how old it is.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I've gone on line and all of the info/videos are for regular dryer units. I need specific instructions for the stack unit.

F​rom your post it sounds more like the problem is something that is creating the marks is mixed in with the clothes (a pen or crayon etc) and every time the dryer tumbles the clothes they are receiving a mark. The felt gasket usually does not cause any damage, it is just an air and heat seal. Sometimes if clothes get stuck between the door and front opening you can get some damage but that would be isolated to that piece of clothing. I would inspect the inside of the dryer very well for a loose item or something that was deposited on the dryer metal that may have melted and is causing the marks.
