whirlpool Dryer rollers and drum liner
« on: December 05, 2015, 10:46:56 AM »

My bottom left roller started making a nasty noise so I replaced both rollers in april 2015. A month ago or so my dryer started making some more noise and I noticed that the felt drum liner was coming apart. I ordered the liner and I was going to install it today but when I pulled my dryer apart I see the right roller has seized and the left roller has basically disintegrated. Did I get bad rollers and they caused the drum liner to wear? The rollers were 3rd party and were working fine for several months.

  Thats your problem the rollers were 3rd party. Use FSP parts only and they last for years.
