Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Smells like somethings burning, more a kerosine smell, and dryer is extremly hot When the dryer is heating, I begin to smell a burning smell, not a gas or kerosene smell. Right before the dryer stopped, it made a popping sound and then I began to smell burning.

Disconnect the dryer from your vent completely,. pull dryer out 3 ft. from wall and test to see if the smell continues, You have to test for a few minutes to clear out any burning lint from vent restrictions. If the smell hoes away then you know you have venting problems. Also check on the grate that covers the element( the part you look through when you see the orange glow from the element) sometimes plastic or clothing burns onto this grate and needs to be cleaned off. I the smell remains, you will have to tear down the dryer to see if you can find the cause of the smell.

HI,

i stronlgy suggest you that dont use it if you are smelling a un usual scent like burning wires.
to prevent any accidental that may occur.
bring your dryer or call a service technician to check parts by parts maybe some are only short circuited.

If this is a Kenmore Elite front loader, taking the back off isn't going to tell you much. The heating element is inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side. More than likely you have an accumulation of lint on the heating element housing and its beginning to smolder. Running the dryer on low will not change the fact that you have lint in close proximity to a glowing element. It will still burn. Here is a link you can look at that gives you some advice on dryers:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

You will need to unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door to gain access to the heating circuits. If you have lint backing up into the dryer, you need to investigate why. If its been a while since you've inspected your dryer ventilation ducting, it would probably be a good idea to do so. Everything is in the link I provided for you. I hope this helps.

PS Conitued running of a dryer in this condition can cause the heating circuits to overheat and fail and/or cause a fire.

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while
