Your gas dryer uses a lot of air, not just the air that blows out the vent but the air used to burn the gas ( natural or propane ) as well, This is sometimes caused by the filter not being completely clean. By this I am referring to the clogging of the screen from the use of fabric softener sheets. The chemicals in these sheets will, over a period of time, impair the air flow through the screen and cause the gas odor to become prominent not to mention the temperature to rise within the dryer. you can clean the filter with soapy water and a tooth brush about every other month and it keeps this from occurring. but if after that the smell gas continues ...turn off the gas valve to the dryer and call for service!

Reach inside the drum and feel the drum inserts to see if one of those has come loose. Sometimes you can have one of those screws back out and hit something on the inside. Could also be a bent drum (doubtful unless its been overloaded or abused real bad) a front slide is bad (would probably cause squeeking or grinding noise) or rear bering (also should squeek or grind). Good Luck!!! Jim

Remove the front panel to get to it. Once you get the front panel off it is easy to remove the drum and replace the element. First remove the top then the front then you have it.

Clothes smell like gas


STOP USING THE DRYER AND CALL A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON TO TEST ALL GAS LINE CONNECTIONS WITHIN THE UNIT!

A gas leak can cause a fire in your home. Although, we have always used a gas dryer, and the clothes do have a fresher smell to them than an electric dryer. Any gas which may be in the area would be consumed when the gas flame was burning as normally the pilot remains lit throughout the drying cycle.

Mildew smell on clothes


I have the same machines. Try using an old towel and detergent solution( use rubber gloves) and thouroughly clean the door seal. It can be just full of old lint, dirt, etc. in the grooves. Also try some oxyclean in your next load. That will help get rid of the odor also. These washers stay warm quite a long time and clothing will mildew fast in warm weather, but you probably already know that.
