Question about GE DBXR463EDWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer was running with full load of clothes. Heard a loud pop twice, ran back to the laundry room and smelled like something burning. Turned dryer off, and now it won't start back. Also, the very top of the dryer is extremely hot.

Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?

Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.

Before leaving the house I turned on the dryer. After several hours I got home and the laundry room smelled like rotten eggs. The laundry room is upstairs with only a wash basin and washing machine in...


Its never a good idea to leave a clothes dryer unattended. They are often a source of house fires. Is it a gas dryer? Maybe a gas leak, do not use until checked by a qualified person. If electric tumble dryer, then maybe the smell was caused by some lint collected around the heater element, and it eventually scorches and stinks like that. Either way,get it checked by a profession qualified person, don't risk a fire in your house! Hope this helps, good luck.

Maytag Neptune Dryer with strong "burned electrical wiring" smell


Sounds like the motor went out. Before trying to start it it needs to be inspected. If you are not comfortable opening up the cabinet then I would would recommend calling a service tech. If you need further assistance please let me know.

Dryer not drying clothes properly


Replace the vent tubing, sounds like something is stuck or it is crushed somewhere. So replace it for about 5 dollars and see if that works. It should since you disconnect the hose and it drys right away

Our Kenmore HE3 front loading dryer gives off a fuel smell inside


When I had the back off of the dryer I did notice one thing that looked a little unusual. The vent
pipe, which the flame of the burner travels through, ( running from the burner to the back of the
dryer ) was painted, inside and out. Some of the paint was cracked and slightly bubbled, as though
it was melting from heat, and there actually was a small pile of soot laying there. I wiped off as much
of the paint as I could with a rag, and vacuumed it out, and put the dryer back together and ran it.
After running the dryer for a while we no longer have the smell. I don't really know if that was the problem
or not, but at least the smell is gone.
