Question about Dryers

Maytag Legacy Series Dryer will not start

After opening the dryer door while drying a load of laundry, I smelled a slight burning smell that dissipated quickly. Upon reclosing the door and pressing the Start button, the dryer would not start. I have tried reclosing the door several times and changing the cycle setting to no avail. When the Start button is pressed, the mode indicator light does light.

The washer for our Maytag LS7806 has quit, but the dryer still works. A few weeks after we stopped using the washer, it started to smell of rotten eggs. I can't find a filter to clean, any ideas?


The bacteria in the washer part are causing the smell.
Give the inside a good wipe round with a damp cloth to remove any visible residue.
Leave the door and soap drawer fully open so that the inside dries out after a couple of days; that should fix it.

Dryer won't start and has a burning smell.


there should be a fan in the unit that blows air over the element and through the clothes
there should also be a thermostat that sets the element temp to low mild or hot according to the switch on the front

Spin cycle not working. smells like motor may


Open the back door and check the motor body for the heat. If so check whether the drum is freely rotating.

Then check the motor.

Maytag Neptune Dryer with strong "burned electrical wiring" smell


Sounds like the motor went out. Before trying to start it it needs to be inspected. If you are not comfortable opening up the cabinet then I would would recommend calling a service tech. If you need further assistance please let me know.

Maytag Neptune Dryer smells like burning rubber or plastic...


The drum belt could be rubbing on something inside. Does the dryer make a squeeking noise? Se if there are small rubber particles on the bottom, this will indicate a deteriating belt.

Kenmore 80 series quit heating after burning smell..


Any kind of lint or cobwebs on the element would cause a hot spot and fry the element or pop the limit that is mounted on top of the chamber. What your hubby soulda done is take the machine down and vacuum it out after sitting up so long. The fuse is not blown because it still runs so it must be the small guy pictured. It mount up top of the heat element chamber.ff8b5e7.jpg
