I have a Kenmore 110.97284100 dryer that is about 15+ years old. The front seal started to tear and I have opened up the dryer to replace the seal. (By the way, to the best of my knowledge the repairclinic does not sell the front seal) Anyway, the bulk of the seal has been removed but a remnant has been left behind stuck w/ the old glue to the drum. Is there a trick to getting the remaining glue and felt off to provide a good surface on which to mount the new seal? Or does one just carefully scrape it off or just ignore it? Thanks, Stan

Just scrape off as much as you can. I use a stiff putty knife with the edge sharpened.
