Customer Question
Replaced felt seals and...

Replaced felt seals and gliders; top strip came unglued and dryer shut down. Re-glued, drum turns but dryer won't start.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Kenmore stack 417 91702000, at least 14 years old.

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

I don't know; I replaced the seals myself but it wasn't easy. There's no rear access because of the way it's positioned.

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

I don't know.
