Make sure that you don't use the plastic type of vent hose. This is meant for non heat, like a bathroom fan. If you have metallic venting, go outside and see if the dryer air is able to come outside with some force. If not there is a blockage in the venting somewhere. If you went for a while without realizing the first one blew off, you could have built up a lot of lint inside the dryer. You will have to take it apart and vacuum it out. If lint gets onto the element when it heats up you will smell it burn.

Problem with tumble dryer that has started making loud noise.


Dryers are designed to operate in one direction. Some models turn clockwise and some turn counter-clockwise. Do not run it backwards. The direction of air flow will be impeded or reversed.

My dryers plug shorted out and tripped the breaker. I replaced the plug and turned it all back on and it worked.....then seconds later a loud poof sound from the dryer and now nothing is working. Please...


when a plug shorts out like your has,it creates a surge of current for a moment,it could have ruined or weakened the element,motor,thermal fuse or even pierced a wire electrically and when you re-powered the circuit it blew out this weakened component,the loud poof you stated sounds like the element burned through and blew out creating an arc and the poof sound

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

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.

My dryer gets really hot, but the clothes take a long time to dry and it is really humid inside the dryer. Also, there is a weird smell almost like a burning smell.


It sounds like the dryer isn't getting enough airflow, which might mean a clog.

Make sure you clean the lint filter every time. Also, make sure the vent hose isn't kinked or clogged (if you can, remove the vent hose and clean it out.) Also check between where the vent hose connects to a wall or pipe. There could be a lint clog anywhere between the dryer and where the air leaves the house.
