Dryer smells like fire has wiring


Replace the high limit thermostat.The high limit safety thermostat is a back-up thermostat that will shut off the heating element if it detects a temperature above 200 degrees. The thermistor (temperature sensor) that is on the blower housing detects the temperature in the dryer. It is the component that helps the control regulate the operating temperature at around 150 degrees.
Here is a link to the part you need.
Here is a video to show you how to replace the thermostat.

When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell gas upon opening the door. If the dryer is not running, you do not smell a gas odor. Sometimes our clothes also have a gas smell.This just started a week...


Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of luck.

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
