Smell cabin


A modern, well maintained vehicle's exhaust is virtually orderless once the catalytic converter has fired up. What you could smelling is oil leaking from the engine, for instance, from the valve cover that then drips down onto the hot exhaust where it vaporizes. That oil vapor is then ingesting into the passenger compartment through the fresh air intakes. Try airing out the cabin and then set the ventilation controls to recirculation mode to see if the problem persists. Also, the oil vapor will only happen when the exhaust is hot. So if you don't smell it when you first start the engine, that could be confirming this cause. Look at your engine and see if you see oil and dirt oozing from the valve cover gasket. You can try to tighten the oil cover fasterners to see if it stops the leak, but the best approach would be to replace the valve cover gasket.

The dryer puts off a chemical smell on the clothes-gas dryer


If it smells like gas on your clothes, your exhaust vent is probably being restricted, causing the exhaust to back up into the dryer cavity. Remove exhaust hose, make sure it is clear all the way to where it exits your home.( sometimes birds build nests in the outlet vent) Look into vent where hose attatches to dryer, and make sure it is clear also. If you smell gas when moving the dryer, there should be a shutoff valve near the wall, close it. DO NOT THE DRYER ! ! Call someone qualified to make the repair.

Clothes come our smelling bad


Run a load empty on the hottest setting with a cup of bleach.

Then, after finished using the machine each day, leave the door open for a few hours to allow the rubber seal to dry.

Clothes smell burndt after drying in a Kenmore gas dryer


Rule number one NEVER EVER use the top of your dryer to stack piles of clothes while in use. That is the main reason why dryers over-heat. Also clean out the exhaust tube to the exterior.
