Replace felt front drum seal on Samsung DV42H5200GW dryer

Recommended Posts

Everything I've read indicates that Samsung ONLY sells these felt seals attached to new drums - so what could be a $30 repair is a $200+ repair. Does anyone have experience with an alternative method of solving this? The dryer is 2.5 years old and has already needed a drum motor replacement and now this. Lowes won't stand behind it, nor will Samsung.

Not a whole lot cheaper and you’ll need adhesive.

Insane! We're opening it up today - my hope is that it is intact and just came loose.... but man, highway robbery!

I didn't know the seals were available separately until now. I saved a bunch of them from bad drums when Samsung was having the split seam issues. I just sold my last one a few days ago, it looks I should have been charging a lot more for them.
