Not drying efficiently. Air moving ok, heat appears to be ok. Would like to open it up to visually inspect it. With event off slight burning smell. Would like to verify clean of lint.


If it tumbles and it heats up but your clothes don' t dry disconnect the vent tube from the the wall and run a load of wet clothes if they dry then your homes venting is clogged and if it still does not dry then it could be your thermal fuse.

Clothes smell after drying


I don't think the problem lies with the dryer, I would suspect the washer has mold, this is especially true on front load washer, they make products designed just for this problem, check with a large retailer, not sure who makes the mold and mildew remover, I think Home Depot or Lowes may have the product or know about it..

Dryer is not drying- wet lint in the filter


Maybe you have a dead animal, (mouse,rat etc) inside of unit. They could have died whilst chewing the wiring, hence the no heat problem. Take off the panel on the back of unit or tip it on it's side. You should be able to see the inner workings and anything else. If not, buy a new dryer, this one must be costing heaps to run.

The dryer take a long time to dry have a sour smell at time


The two items you mentioned lead me to believe that the flex duct that vents the dryer has lint accumulated in it and it is very wet, I have seen this numerous times. I would recommend moving dryer out, and disconnecting the line and cleaning it out.
Make sure to shut off breaker
to the dryer when servicing or unplug it (I prefer to shut off breaker before unplugging
them for safety). Hope this helps.

My clothes come out of the washer smelling fresh and clean. After drying in the dryer, they smell mildewy.


Check for lint buildup in the vent discharge hose/pipe and the inside of the dryer blower housing.
Heavy wet lint buildup will cause a moldy/mildewy smell that you describe.
Heavy lint build up will also increase the drying time, and it is a fire hazzard

Dryer is taking too long to dry


Dryer needs to be cleaned. Unplug, take off back and vacuum all lint out of dryer, also take off vent and vacuum inside of vent area. Then clean dryer vent from inside of house to where it exits. Make sure all lint removed. Lint holds moisture and causes dryer not to be able to release steam caused by heating wet clothes, thus clothes don't dry.

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.

the air flow out of the dryer it should be a very high volume.

Lent is damp dryer takes too long to dry and burning smell


Your burning smell might just be lint which has been loosened by you, getting onto the dryer's heating element. If this is the case, the smell should not last long, nor will it damage the dryer.
