Samsung gas dryer


Nothing to worry about . The problem you had was there was air in the line. Here's how it works. The igniter heats up then the gas valve opens. You had air coming out so it did not light initially . The air was followed by the gas supply but at that point the igniter was already cooling down. When you tried a second time the gas line was purged of all air hence normal operation.
happy drying.

Why does my kenmore 700 dryer smell gas


check the gas valve for leaking seals in the body of the valve,if o.k , then check the manifold tube at the opening just above the gas valve for correct air throttle opening,if not enough air mixture the gas wont burn completely and you will have a smell of gas too

Getting smell of gas & H7 alarm on 2-week old asko dryer...any thoughts on why? Thanks.....Eric


DISSCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL POWER from unit before doing ANYTHING ELSE!!!!! Check all Gas connections IMMEDIATELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be certain non have come loose due to vibration during operation (check and retighten all fittings associated with this device). Should all gas connections be found properly connected & tight, refer to owners manual regarding pilot light. If pilot light has gone out, gas smell will be sensed in the area of appliance, even when NOT turned on! Should pilot be found to be lit..... all connection determined to be connected properly & tight..... IMMEDIATE action should be taken to shut gas supplying appliance OFF !!!!!!!!!!! Contact Professional Service Representative at earliest convenience !!!!!!! DO NOT APPLY GAS PRESSURE TO UNIT TILL ISSUE IS RESOLVED!!!!!!!! GAS CAN BE EXTREMELLY DANGEROUS and EVERY CAUTION SHOULD BE OBSERVED WHEN WORKING IN THE AREA to PROPERLY VENTILATE to open air source. DO NOT ALLOW VAPORS TO ACCUMULATE & AVOID ALL SPARKES & OPEN FLAMES !!!!!!

I have a kenmore 70 series gas dryer. the dryer works pretty normal except the clothes take a little while longer to dry and they all smell badly of natural gas. i opened it up and and i can see the...


Check the vent hose for kinks . Also check the exhaust at the outside to make sure it has good air flow to the outside . A dryer either heats or not . Due to it heats , the only possible problem is vent hose blockage .

Smell gas when dryer running. no smell when dryer stopps.


your not getting enough air to gas mixture to burn the gas completely,you will see an orangish/yellowish flame if the air mix is too low,access the burner tube and adjust the air throttle on the tube entry end till its a clean blue flame

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.

Neptune dryer smells like kerosene!


The smell you are referring to is being caused by aldehydes. The gas burner has incomplete combustion is smothering. Make sure the moisture vent and pipe are not restricted. Try running the dryer with the moisture vent disconnected and see if the problem continues and make sure air flow thru hose is good. Also check outside where the dryer vent exits and make sure there is plenty of air flow. This particular dryer has an inducer fan that pushes the air to the burner and a blocked/plug vent will cause this. You may have to dis-assemble the dryer and inspect the burner compartment for lint build up and restrictions to burner compartment.

Gas dryer/will not heat


If when you run it you smell gas please stop running it!
You should shut the gas valve off immediately anyway!
If the gas heater isn't working when your running it it's probably the Valve that activates the gas (Selenoid) or the Ingnitor that lights it!
It could be the burner which distributes the gas in which case you would smell gas.
My best guess......the ignitor!

My clothes smell burnt


If you have done any recent painting or drywall work, oftentimes the dryer will breathe these fumes and it will affect the smell of your clothes. (Just had the same problem) Maybe let the area air out and see if that corrects your problem
