Bosch nexxt 500 series dryer producing intermittent gas smell when running. wife says the smell has even permeated the clothes a time or two, but I haven't noticed it. heat exchage box? if so, how hard...


A few things to check...

First, check that the dryer vent is not clogged. You'll have to go outside to check. If you are not sure of a clog, disconnect from inside and have your wife hold a flashlight by the vent, then go outside to see if you can see it. This will also cause laundry to dry slower than it used to (your wife may have a feeling if this is the case).

Second, make sure you don't have negative pressure in the house (large house fans are good for cooling but move too much air out so the dryer cannot vent its exhaust gasses well). You can check by opening an exterior door about an inch and check if it swings open with a gush of wind. Even houses without whole-house fans can do this if you have enough bathroom fans and furnace fans going.

Third, If it is a smell of natural gas, then you should call a service technician because the valve is not opening/closing correctly (or fast enough) if you have a pilot-less starter.

My gas dryer smells like fuel sometimes.The clothes are drying but have a fuel smell so I have to rewash them. This happens every so often, not all the time. What is it?


did you paint or stain anything in the house or gas stored near the dryer?usually if you did the fumes get into the dryer and onto the clothes,if the motor is overheating that will also smell like shellac

Lp gas dryer. sometimes when drying smells like butane lighter. venting is wright i think i followed manuel for correct length of venting.maytag dryer 8 years old. thank you


If you have recently painted or varnished something in your house the fumes could be the cause. They react to the heat in the dryer. Let the house air out for a few days.

When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell gas upon opening the door. If the dryer is not running, you do not smell a gas odor. Sometimes our clothes also have a gas smell.This just started a week...


Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of luck.

I have a Kenmore 7670269076702 gas dryer that will not heat up. We just took it all apart and cleaned all the lint out of it. There is no spark from the igniter, nor do we smell gas from the burner that is...


That symptom is sometimes caused by a faulty flame sensor. But since there is no ignition, it may be the timer. Or a combination of both. You just may have to call a repairman. But, does the motor run and the drum turn?

Gas dryer does not seem to heat up the air


Do the gas burners come on at all and is the pilot light on as well. The orifices could be clogged or dirty or not combusting right. Do you smell gas any when you turn it on? Let me know so I can maybe help further.
