Is this a gas dryer. If so, check the burners. It could not be combusting properly. The valves may be dirty. Get them cleaned by a professional or someone who is familiar with cleaning gas orifices.

Tumble dryer black soot


IF you checked the belt and there is no apparent ware; then only bearings will give off a soot when they are going bad. If the idler bearing is misaligned, it too can cause this to happen.

I just loaded my new Fujifilm instax 210 for the first time with the correct film, loaded properly, and the prints are coming out black!


Well, black prints on an instant, or any camera, mean that they're unexposed. So, there are a few things to check - but in your case all will probably mean losing your remaining photos.

First, when you loaded the film, did you remove, or did the camera spit out, the initial black cardboard leader? If not, this is the source of your problem. This piece must come off the film pack first otherwise nothing else is going to work.

If that came out and you're still not getting photos, you're going to need to verify that you're both using the camera properly, and that the camera is functioning properly.

You'll need to be sure that you're getting enough light to get a good photo - darkness isn't going to give a good picture, but in some situations with some high speed films, neither is too bright of a condition. I've had this problem with my polaroid camera. The camera can't compensate for an extreme high-speed film and bright sunlight so it's not even giving an exposure. Don't ask me why, but it happens. If there's an option to change settings for outdoors/indoors, try that.

If that's also not your situation, you'll need to find a way to verify that the camera's shutter is actually opening and working properly. That's easier said than done, but if the other two situations don't help, feel free to contact for further assistance.

Hi there my home is about 3 years old. i have noteced black dust on the doors window frames basically everywhere. i don't know why.


Does this unit have an blower? If so there is no filter and this can happen.
Direct vent means no open flame in the house but you might still have a combustion problem. Open the front cover and check for black soot. Also check outside at the flue for soot. If so then you need to get this thing checked. Also make sure the little door for the pilot is closed. May have a improper install here if only 3-years.

Black soot causing whites to be gray


I too have the same problem with my Admiral dryer. Have come to the conclusion that the soot is making all my clothes greyer, but just noticed it with my whites. Took apart my dryer today and first of all found that the outlet below the lint vent was plugged. There is no soot on the outside of the drum or the dryer housing...however there is soot within the metal tube that surrounds the gas burner. Seems the gas is not being burned properly or the plugged lint trap was not letting the burned gases escape??? Laura

Gas dryer leaves black grease spots on clothes


the soot is coming from the flame at the gas heater box the drier needs to be converted to propane the flame is too large without the conversion kit installed and thus creates soot at the vent. contact a local repair place for this one it can be tricky.

Black carbon/soot on the door and lint filter of my dryer


Soot would mean lint is circulating around in your machine, and getting to the combustion area. Take the machine all apart and clean it thoroughly, including taking the cover off the fan and cleaning it too. A dirty fan will slow down the whole works. Check with your hardware store for a chimney-sweep's brush. I once bought one that could be tied to ropes and pulled up and down a flue. If they have a brush the right size, you could do that and really clean your dryer vent.

Black soot in dryer


There are several possible causes: a)  exhaust vent is restricted forcing the lint to enter the dryer shell and overheat and/or be picked up by the blower -- you seem to have inspected this b)  check the hot gas inlet to the drum.. on some dryers, lint buildup can occur in tight spots and it will overheat and char c)  ducting is not intact or leaks allowing lint to leak into the dryer shell -- this will occur over time, and all dryers should be taken apart and cleaned out on a regular basis... also, all ducting should be inspected and sealed as needed d)  verify that the inlet vents to the dryer shell are not blocked and allow adequate air flow to the burner assembly -- natural gas normally won't smoke due to incomplete combustion, but..  likewise, verify the room has adequate ventilation particularly if the utility room or closet is very small,  e)  check the drum drive belt, as it gets old, it will release dust and minute pieces which will be picked up by the blower -- replace if needed... f)  verify that the seals on the drum are still good -- replace as needed g)  as 'washer-tech' advised, do a thorough cleaning and inspection... put it back together with all ducting tight and free flowing
