How old is this dryer? If it is older that 15 years get a new one. You don't want to deal with the headaches. The motor may be going bad on it and the wiring could be melting. I assume it is not working now. Have him check the breakers. Make sure the connections are o.k. in the back. Clean out the lint piping and look for lint underneath it as well.

Asko t701 dryer burning smell


Loud noise is not a good description. What does it sound like? The dryer has a belt that turns the drum, the belt can wear and slip, there is a also a tensioner pulley on the belt system and then there is the motor that turns the drum. The smell could be from the belt, however you should know that dryers are not maintenance free and you have to clean them at least annually because they can build up lint in the cabinet and that lint can get into the heating element and it can start a fire.

Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

My maytag dryer is making a very loud noise near the area where the belts are, the belts seem to be working and the drum is turing, however after a while there is a burning smell.


Is the burning smell like plastic? If so read on. The belt runs on a spring steel plat tensioner with platic wheels of course. Plastic is on everything these days, huh? Well anyways the wheels the belt rides against has bushings inside them to make them last a long time which they do. It seems the plastic wheel will melt down in some spots and when rotating it makes the drum of the clothes dryer make a rumbling sound. I know you did not mention that problem although if the wheels keep on melting down the smell will subside but the noise will get loader as time goes on.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer


Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

Crosley CDE8000W Dryer has electric burning smell and shut down


it is most likely the belt. the squealing noise is because the motor is turning, but the belt is not. a replacement belt is not too expensive and it is fairly easy to replace. if you need directions how to replace it, let me know
