Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer
For the past couple of days, gas dryer wasn't drying clothes thoroughly in one cycle. I had to run the dryer in two to three cycles to dry clothes. As of this weekend, there was a strange burning smell coming from dryer as if some plastic or rubber burned. There was no smoke, only a strong odor of burning. I didn't run dryer again for fear that something may be very wrong. Checked lint trappers in back of dryer and in front, and both are clean. Drum does turn, so belt is okay. What could be the cause of the burning smell and dryer not drying clothes properly?
Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.
