I am having problems with my dryer. It is a frigidaire dryer model fde336res2. I noticed that the clothes are getting pinched in between the seal. There is a big gap by the front of the drum, and I can move the drum so that gap closes (where the clothes get caught.) Any help would be greatly appriciated!

Not an unusual occurence. Take a look at item 20 above - it's a felt pad with three nylon "glides", and these have worn down, allowing the drum to sit lower than normal (the gap's at 4o'clock, right?).

Replace this part (I think its been redesigned), you may also want to replace the lower seal (21) at the same time.

Can I buy this felt stuff and high temp adhesive at like a Lowes store or something? Seems very expensive for what it is.

No, you have to buy it here or else your dryer will explode and create a rip in the fabric of the time-space continuum, sucking this entire universe into the alternate, parallel reality. 

Please, save humanity and buy the correct part.

Ah, my dear friend, welcome to the wonderful world of what Wile. E. Coyote would call "Aftermarketpartius Screwoverum", an ancient art of which GE are the undisputed masters. You got off a little more lightly with your Friggin' Friggidaire.
