Whirlpool LEQ9858LW0 Dryer lint chute seal replacement?

23 September 2011 - 09:18 AM

I apologize but I do not have my model number with me right, my question is more a generic one. I was cleaning my dryer the other day, had it taken apart and had removed the lint chute to clean it out. I noticed a lot of lint and hair build up around the chute foam seal and was carefully pulling debris off of the foam seal when a portion of the seal tore away. This is the large opening at the top of the chute, not the fan end. I'm concerned that the seal may now be compromised and not be forming as tight of a seal as it was before. I'd like to find a local parts dealer to get a replacement or order online (will take longer) but a thought occurred to me, is it possible to use a simple weather stripping of similar size and thickness from the hardware store as a possible quick alternative that would work just as well? Thanks!
