Hello Kevin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you run your dryer on fluff you are not using heat. The burning smell is when you use normal dry and the lint starts to burn. This will shut your unit down.

You just need a good cleaning. Nothing major. Send me your model number and I will help you.

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Kenmore whirlpool dryer won't start and has a bad burning smell


You may have an overheat sensor that is burning up. The dryer won't start because the heat would be uncontrollably high otherwise

Strong odor coming from dryer


Usually when there is a strong heat (burn) smell from the heat element, it is telling you that there is poor air flow. This has nothing to do with the model. It is a blocked or restricted vent line, or an internal blower wheel malfunction or a lint blockage further in the machine that is restricting the air flow. WHEN AIR MOVES CORRECTLY, THE ELEMENT HEATS NORMALLY AND DOES NOT GIVE ANY OVERHEAT ODER.

The motor capacitor is burned. You can replace it yourself. It's on the motor. Take it down to a motor shop and they will have a new one. (electric motor repair shop)

Odor from Maytag dryer


Have you cleaned your vent lately? It might be excessively outgassing an ammonia smell because some plastic part that is getting too hot. If the vent is making it run hot or not exhausting it might stink up the room. Otherwise, it might just be stinky plastic. I don't know anything about your specific model, but I had a bread maker that was the source of a garlic & ****-like ammonia smell on the top cover after the plastic turned yellow from heat & age. Not a good feature for something that makes food and lives in the kitchen.

Dryer stoped running


Your drive belt may have broken if it smelled like rubber burning. If that is the case then your motor bearing are worn out or something has been lodged between your dryer drum and the dryer housing. If the smell was the odor of burning plastic, then your motor is probably burned up.

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while
