It means there is a leak. You should turn off the gas flow to the drier immediately until it is fixed!

Lg gas dryer something burning

burning smells in driers can be sometimes from a blocked lint filter. The dried lint has been known to ignite when it gets hot. If you haven't cleaned the lint filter then do so and if the smell continues get it serviced.

Kenmore 500 dryer

If you mean that it is not heating and stays cool, most likely the pilot sensing thermocouple needs replacing (if you have a gas drier with a pilot light) or the electronic ignition contacts need replacing (if you have a gas drier with electronic ignition). Not sure about an electric drier, but probably the heating element needs replacing, or the thermocouple sensor (most likely). None of these are very expensive.

Hi, I have the Asko dryer T721. It's about 6 years old and is starting to emit a gas smell when it is on. It also seems to be taking a lot longer to dry. I have followed the manual to clean it and it works...

Umm, i think its time to say goodbye to your drier, i had a drier, when it got past the 4 year mark, it made a weird smell, then it kind of set itself on fire, call asko if you can, ask them....

Runs louder than normal then just stops.

most common causes of a noisy dryer are bad drum support rollers, a bad idler pulley or a bad blower wheel

Face of the drier

No, there is no access panel in the rear of the dryer.  Everything comes off from the top or the front.

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
