First, take off the top of your dryer. Use a screwdriver to pry the top up in front, then it's usually held on by some swing metal hinges on the back that simply come off by themselves as you rotate the top of the unit up and back. Then, you should be able to see all the screws and metal brackets holding the front of the unit on, remove all of these and you should be able to pull the front off. It may be necessary to unplug some of the wires when doing this. Then you should have full access to the front lint filter section on the door, and the fan section underneath the drum. The fan and the drum spin together, so if the sock is stuck in the fan that will also stop the drum. Good luck

I smell a burning smell. when i open the dryer, there is smoke

Firt make sure the lint filter is clear and the air exhaust pipe is clear. Then check the drum gasket. Behind the drum, there is a heater.The drum rotates and the heated air is passed from the stationary heater to the drum via a gasket, usually stuck to the back of the drum andthis rubs against the stationary heater wall. This gasket can become frayed or broken and bits can be ignited by the heater. The gasket will need to be replaced if this is the problem.

What is the rack for

The rack is to dry things like sweaters or shoes that you would not want tumbling around. When used the items are stationary and the drum rotates around them. Low or no heat can be used to facilitate drying without shrinkage or damage.

Our gas LG dryer suddenly stopped working. The display works fine, however when turned on, the drum doesn't rotate, and makes a loud humming noise.

check for a motor start capacitor on the side of the drum motor,some use a start cap,if not then either the start relay on the end of the motor where the wires are is bad or the motor bearings are dried out and the motor is locked-up,usually this will trip the circuit breaker though,remove the drum belt and see how easily and how long the motor shaft rotates when spun by hand it should coast to a stop

I have a Zanussi ZWF1241W and something is stuck in the drum. The drum does not spin freely and prior but does not have any play. What is the best way of checking this and getting the obstruction out....

It was a sock wedged between the lip of the spinning drum and the outer (stationary) drum casing. I managed to ease it out with some pliers - rotating the drum and pulling. Be careful though not to nick the door seal (as I did). It may be a better strategy to get the door seal off and then remove the obstruction. I'm about to find out how easy/hard/fiddly it is to get a new door seal onto this machine!

My WD440 has trown its drive belt and something

it sounds like there is a sock or something simular stuck between the drum and tank,the paddle is removable which may help you hook out the item,if you grab the drum paddle from the rear and pull it towards you it will then lift up,once you have removed the offending item,you just line up the slots on the drum with the pegs on the paddle and push towards the rear of the machine and you will here a click,this means the paddle is secure.

How do I use the dryer rack in the Frigidaire Infinity gas dryer. I can insert it but what do I do to keep the drum from rotating and tossing the rack aroung?

Do you have a lint filter slot inside of your dryer or on the top? Our rack in ours mounts into the lint filter slot and the drum turns around it and does not turn the rack. If you have a lift filter that is on top of the unit the rack may mount into the back panel allowing the drum to turn around it.

I took lint filter out to clean it and forgot to put it back in, I started gas dryer and it stopped, I believe there is a sock stuck in there somewhere. Does the front come off and what do I need to take...

Hello Kims987K,
You may want to check circuit breakers in your Breaker Panel to see if the one for your Dryer is tripped, and reset it if it is. Even though you have a Gas Dryer the Drum still operates on electricity, so without it the Dryer wouldn't function at all.
I don't think that the sock is stopping your Dryer, as the lint filter just filters lint from your Dryer's exhaust. So, even with the lint filter out a sock couldn't fit through the small holes in the drum that ventilate it (that's how the lint gets to the filter). I guess there could be a switch that detects whether the filter is in the machine and cut it off though, so you may try to re seat the lint filter (replace the lint screen/filter making sure it's in all the way), and try to start it again. If you look inside the Drum and see any way that a sock or anything else could get out other than through the door opening? That would be a problem.
If the filter was missing for several loads of laundry? Then you could have a restriction in the exhaust causing a thermal overload circuit to cut it off too (prevents the Dryer from catching fire). Does the light come on in the Dryer when you open the door?
From the information you posted, all I got is that it's a Gas Dryer that won't run and you appear to be missing a sock, so more detailed information will probably help in finding your solution.
I'll check back, and Good Luck finding that sock.
