Which shell are you using?
Have you sourced your profile in case you have changed it?

it should work with "stty erase ^H", but you will have to type the <ctrl>h keyboard combination...

# stty erase \^h #for backspace
# stty erase \^? #for delete

The issue isn't with the keys but with your terminal emulator.

I believe you are using gnome-terminal which has by default a broken behavior.

Go to "Current Profile/Compatibility" and set backspace and delete to send what god intended them to do.
