Nortron smoke detector


bro there is a possibility that the sensor is going off due to power surges while using the dryer, turning it on and off will cause power fluctuations, you need an electrician to measure the current\voltage while you which on the dryer, if this is the cause he will advise you on how to avoid future false alarms.

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer, 4 years old. i


It sounds like the heating filament below the drum has either fried one of the fuses down there, or has some lint or something fallen on to it.
Did you notice if the drum still heated up? If it did, then its a bit trickier to completely ID what went wrong. If it no longer heats up now, then the thermal cut-off fuse has been blown and will need to be replaced (most common problem with a dryer)
Typically, once it is unplugged, you can open up the panel below the door (there are normally a couple of latches along the top gap that you need to push in with a couple of screwdrivers to open). Once open, you should see a heating coil that provides the hot air to the drum, look to see if there is anything in contact with the coil. If there is something there, remove it. If not, then continue below.
Now, if your dryer has stopped heating up, you need to pull the coil and replace the thermal cut-off fuse (or get someone in to do it for you). If it was still heating up, you can start the dryer with the panel open (make sure everyone and everything is well clear of the opening) and see where it is smoking from.

Dishwasher smoking


I would shut down the circuit and open the door. Remove the lower basket and inspect/feel the heating element for breaks/"bumps"

I bet you will find that it is damaged and needs to be replaced. Not a real hard task with tools and patience.

Please report back what you find/do, OK?
