SOURCE: Stain in dryer

This will work. Soak white towel or other white fabric in bleach water, then slightly wring them out, leaving very wet. Then put them in dryer, on low or fluff cycle. Run for 60 minutes or more. This should rub off all the ink in the dryer. You may have to repeat if you have alot of ink. I have done this a few times and it has always work, good luck.

SOURCE: When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell

Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of luck.

Burnt fish smell in microwave


Mix vinegar and water in a small container, set timer for 60 seconds and start the microwave, when it starts to steam it will bond to the interior, at that point dis-engauge microwave oven, if smell is still present open a small box of baking soda let sit for 24 hours in the oven before use.

Fish odor in freezer and fridge


Unplug first. You will need to clean the inside of the refrigerator and the freezer with a good cleaner and warm water. After this you need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer and spray water with Clorox on the evaporator coil and pour some of the solution down the defrost condensate drain to disinfect and remove the odors that drain down that hole to be evaporated and returned to the air in your home. That should take care of the fish smell, Please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The lint trap on my dryer is moist.


I don't know what's causing the smell, but the moist lint trap and the "takes two cycles" sounds like the exhaust vent is partially blocked.

You can ask the apartment manager to clean it out, or you can take a stab at it yourself with an electrician's fish tape, a plumber's snake, or a dryer-duct cleaning kit. (I picked links from Ace, but you can get them at any hardware or home shop)


Pull the dryer out and detach it from the ductwork. If you're using the fish tape or the drain auger, then you'll want to tie a rag to the end -- washcloth to dishtowel sized at the biggest -- to wipe the lint out of the ductwork. If you've got the duct-cleaning-kit, then use the brush that comes with the kit.


Work your way up and down the ductwork as far in as you can reasonably reach. Chances are good that you'll soon have a huge pile of lint on the floor, and much better airflow through the ductwork.

Hook up the dryer and things should go much better on the next laundry day.

Stink-ola!


I would call out Maytag as it looks as if an insulator on the motor is burning out.

Or a connector is overheating

Get it checked in case you have a fire
