Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

There is a gas smell by my washing machine and dryer.

There is always a gas smell by my washing machine and dryer lately. The units are next to each other, both almost 20 years old, but are working fine. The dryer is a gas dryer. When I use the appliances the smell disappears for a while.

Mark, My name is Hal and having trouble understanding where you painted. Did you paint the inside of the drum? Or did you paint the house interior?

If you painted the inside of the drum did you use a high temperature paint? If not, that could be your problem since the dryer does get very hot inside and it could be melting your paint.

Can the doors on the washer and dryer be reversed? and the washer always smells like mildew.


You can reverse the dryer door, but not the washer.

For the smell, use a washer cleaner (like affersh) or run a cycle with bleach only , no clothes. If the washer has a clean washer cycle on it, utilize it. Also, leave the door cracked after a wash, and make sure you are not using too much soap and/or fabric softener

Its never a good idea to leave a clothes dryer unattended. They are often a source of house fires. Is it a gas dryer? Maybe a gas leak, do not use until checked by a qualified person. If electric tumble dryer, then maybe the smell was caused by some lint collected around the heater element, and it eventually scorches and stinks like that. Either way,get it checked by a profession qualified person, don't risk a fire in your house! Hope this helps, good luck.

Chances are, the odor is from the washing machine.

Do the clothes smell when you take them out of the washer or after they have been in the dryer?

Tide makes a washing machine product that can help deodorize a washer, but using white vinegar with a hot wash cycle (empty) will also help. I think Home Depot or other home improvement stores may carry the Tide product. Maybe even your local grocer.

Also check the dryer for any odd odors. Sometimes scented dryer sheets put into the dryer with it empty can help deodorize it, or you can manually wipe the inside of the dryer with a product like Clorox Wipes. Check the dryer venting for any obstructions or restricted air flow just to be sure.

If the problem persists and it it still smells, it's possible (not too likely) you could have a pest issue, depending on your location and time of year.

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.

Towels smell burnt after washing.


Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..
Thanks

Gas smell


Fire Hazzard ? YES !! Sounds like the ignitor is taking too long to lite the gas. This lets the gas trickle into the machine. It is very important to the operation that the ignitor lite within 30 seconds on the first try and within 20 seconds thereafter.
