SOURCE: My clothes smell burnt

If you have done any recent painting or drywall work, oftentimes the dryer will breathe these fumes and it will affect the smell of your clothes. (Just had the same problem) Maybe let the area air out and see if that corrects your problem

SOURCE: Back heating grate inside dryer has become dark like it's burnt

darkning of the element housing at that point is normal the smell may be coming from lint on the heating element ..may pay to have it cleaned to be sure there is not excess lint accumilation ..or if it has a bottom panel pull it off and clean the base and around the element housing or if filter is on top remove back and clean..still may have some odor simply from lint floating around but better safe than sorry

SOURCE: dryer gives off a strong odor which make my clothes smell.

if you have been painting or staining recentley the chemicals in these products are mixing with the mercaptin in the gas to cause the odour. The problem will correct itself when the fumes are gone.

SOURCE: Overheating/burnt rubber smell

classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

SOURCE: Smells like burnt diesel or very hot smell

Can't help thinking that either you don't have the revised operating instructions, or the "Sensor Dry System" is not working properly. Download the revised instructions here [ ] and see if this helps. Otherwise have the sensors in the machine tested.

yes these units are fragile your going to need to gain access to the heating section... removal of the bottom panel and you may be able to get the top off and get most of them the screws are in the rear for the top and then the top slides backwards to remove try that first and vac out if not then remove the bottom section and go in from there....

I was drilling a hole and my drill blow up with a burning smel

could be quite a few problems, did you overload or stall the drill, did you have adequate power supply? Quick test without knowing the model number and brand can you turn the bit or chuck with your hand? If it is cordless is the battery contacts burnt? If electric unplug and remove the handle halves and look at the armature/field for burnt windings or burnt switch, all which could cause a burning smell and shut the tool down, let me know and I will try and help further.

Problem washing pillows. They get full of water and washer won't spin the water out.

You can remove the pillows and squeeze most of the water out and then put them back in to spin the rest. Washers weren't really made to wash pillows and pillows werent really made to be washed in a washer. Get new pillows and put hypoallergenic covers to keep the funk out. Wash the covers as necessary.
Alternatively heating and tumbling them in the dryer might get rid of whatever aspect you were trying to neutralize or wash out of the pillows.

Remove debris from around the outside of drum

Take the top off the dryer. You can access it from the back and remove the screws. You will probably find a lot of dust as well. You can also lay the dryer on its frontside to get to the bottom. There isn't going to be anything you can damage here. Vacuum it well especially around the motor.
