Have you cleaned the dryer? You should clean out the heating coil area at least once a year. Lint can build up and burn and the odor is drawn into the dryer when it runs.

My dryer leaves a weird smell on my clothing anything i dry no matter what setting i use , how big or how small the loads are and it smells.


Try checking the back of the dryer, there should be a foil tube type exhaust. Sometimes if the tube falls off the wall (mine had a plug on wall) the lint backs up and burns or cooks. That's the cause of your smell.

U can also use a vacuum and try to vacuum the lint trap at the front of the dryer. U might have to unscrew the grill.

The bottom line is that there is lint somewhere in ur dryer and that's what is causing ur smell.

Washed clothes with gasoline on them. Put into dryer now washer and dryer smell like gasoline. How do I get it out?


To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Step1
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause further damage to your clothing.
Step2
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Step3
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle finish.
Step4
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Step5
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Step6
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the smell is gone.

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.

Smell after drying


Try drying your clothes without the dryer sheet and see if the smell is still there. If it is not, then the problem is the dryer sheet.
If it is, then you need to describe the smell better. Different people handle smells differently. What smells musty to you may smell fragrant to others.
You need to determine if the smell you don't like is really a musty smell, or is it a fragrance you don't like. Have some friends (not family members) smell the clothes and verify if what you are smelling is musty or fragrant.

It could also be that even though the clothes smell OK out of the washer, that the detergent you are using is the cause.

When the dryer is running it smells like charcol ligher fluid


Sometime recently there has been a petroleum product used in the house. Possibly an oil based paint, stain, varnish, adhesive or some form of cleaning product.

Anyone of these products or many others like them, contain a distillate of liquid. Check around the house.

Until that oil based product dries or cures, the odor and vapors will remain and so will the dryer smell.

At the end of the drying cycle, use the air fluff cycle to purge out the smell. Besure to return the selector on the dryer back to it's prior postition.

My dryer gets really hot, but the clothes take a long time to dry and it is really humid inside the dryer. Also, there is a weird smell almost like a burning smell.


It sounds like the dryer isn't getting enough airflow, which might mean a clog.

Make sure you clean the lint filter every time. Also, make sure the vent hose isn't kinked or clogged (if you can, remove the vent hose and clean it out.) Also check between where the vent hose connects to a wall or pipe. There could be a lint clog anywhere between the dryer and where the air leaves the house.
