Look for a removable back sub-panel that has the exhaust pipe running through it or near it.

Check filter light blinking will not start only beeps what to do please help


Probably a lint buildup on the sensor. Need to clean the entire lint system. Should be able to remove the plastic frill if the lint filter is inside the drum. Remove the two screws and clean out all the lint then pull the dryer out remove the vent hose. Run a vacuum hose or reach up i to there and pull out the li t. Then clean out the vent hise...a broom handle works if it's a straight shot.

My dryer is smoking and making a noise


This is not good and should be disconnected from power source until problem resolved. It sounds like an accumulation of lint in the dryer base, where motor / belt compartment are located. Vacuuming all the lint from inside the cabinet will reduce the risk of a lint fire. Cleaning the exhaust / vent hose all the way through to the outside of building will allow better air flow. I have used a leaf blower to do this. Disconnect the dryer hose from the back of the dryer, and insert the leaf blower nozzle. Secure hose to leaf blower nozzle as best you can so it is air tight. Switch on the leaf blower for half a minute or so. Any accumulated lint in the dryer vent line will be discharged to the outside of building. Reconnect dryer hose to dryer and test to see if clothes are now drying faster.

When I open the dryer door, there is water standing in the bottom of the dryer and there is water on the drum. It has a musty smell in the dryer. What is causing this?


The vent hose is clogged , also there may be lint clogged inside the dryer. Disconnect the hose and see if you can feel hot air coming out, if you can then it is in the vent hose. If not then you will have to take the dryer apart and clean all the lint out

Ge DRYER dpgt750EC2PL back wall of drum gets very hot. Occassional smell as if something starting to burn. How do I open the top lid to get inside to find out problem


This may sound a bit over simplified but when a dryer starts to get hot inside it is a sign of an airflow problem.

Start with the outside vent flapper. Check to see if there is lint build up on the flapper / louvers.

Pull off the vent hose and check for lint build up. If the vent hose is a flexible plastic hose they have a tendancy to clog with lint in the sprials and then the lint contines to build up until airflow is restricted.

After checking external vents and ducts next remove the lint filter. If you use dryer sheets wash the filter with white vinegar to remove the build up. It may appear clean but the material from the dryer sheets clogs the filters.

In the area around the lint filter check the ducting / air passages for lint build up and clean it.

In the process of all the cleaning do NOT use anything sharp. A vacuum crevice tool and a Looped metal coat hanger do wonders for cleaning assistance.

Before you reconnect the dryer vent try running the dryer with a light load of anything wet to see if it drys properly with the vent disconnected. After that reconnect the vent and repeat the same drying test to see if the drying times are close to the same.

This should solve your hot dryer problem.. If it does not then respond here and we can talk about taking your dryer apart.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kenmore gas dryer works but no heat, model# 110.20702990.


make sure the exhaust vent is not plugged. shut gas off, disconnect hose, start dryer. stop and reconnect hose turn gas back on and try again.
also a propane dryer can work on on natural gas but it is very dangerous to run a natural gas dryer on propane because the orfice is too big.

What do you do if the silver coil behind the dryer comes disconnected


I'm assuming you're referring to the exhaust hose. If it's an electric dryer, just unplug it and pull the dryer away from the wall and reattach the exhaust hose using the the hose clamp. Make sure it's good and tight before you place it back into position. Plug it in and you're good to go.

If it's a gas dryer, you need to be much more careful. I'd recommend having a qualified tech or handyman do this. You don't want a gas leak. They will know the proper steps involved in disconnecting and reconnecting the gas line so the exhaust hose can be reattached.
