Gas smell I have an electric whirlpool stackable washer dryer and lately there has been a smell of gas or propane coming from the dryer which gets on the clothes as well. Is this because of overheating? Is there a fire hazard?

Fire Hazzard ? YES !! Sounds like the ignitor is taking too long to lite the gas. This lets the gas trickle into the machine. It is very important to the operation that the ignitor lite within 30 seconds on the first try and within 20 seconds thereafter.

The limit switch is bad. most likely or the igniter. Does it give off a gas smell? If it is propane you can really smell it. But Natural Gas You may not.

FUEL LIKE ORDER COMING FROM ELECTRIC DRYER POWERE BY FUSES


Have you recently painted anywhere in your home. And I mean anywhere? Paint fumes or other chemical type cleaners or solvents will get in the elements and put off that whole gas or oil smell. If no, have you put any type of clothes in the dryer that may have had some paint or anything else petroleum based on them to dry. That also could have caused this smell as well. If your hot water heater runs on propane or natural gas, check it careful for leaks. This could be a serious situation as a major explosion could happen if it is leaking. Leave the house and call 911 immediatly from a safe distance. I doubt that this is the problem, but be safe than sorry. Let me know if none of these are the culprits. Thanks and let me know.

ELECTRIC DRYER SMELL LIKE GAS


I would imagine that you are saying you have an electric dryer, but it smells like it has a gas leak correct? Let me ask one question, have you used any kind of paints or chemicals in your house lately? If you have painted anything (in any room as well), the fumes of that paint (or other chemical) will get into the elements, and produce that smell for sure. I have actually had customers give me the clothes they dried to smell them, and sure enough, it will get in the clothes for sure. If this isnt the case, be sure that you dont have a gas line behind the dryer that may be leaking, or if your hot water heater or furnace is gas, you dont have a leak there. If you do have gas coming into your home, and you havent painted, etc, call your gas or propane service provider IMMEDIATLY from another home or location and let them come out to be sure you dont have a hidden leak. Good Luck!!!!!

Whrilpool gas dryer


Let it run. If nothing has changed, the dryer will go through several relight cycles and should eventually purge the lines of air.
