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!!!!!

Clothes smell like gas


STOP USING THE DRYER AND CALL A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON TO TEST ALL GAS LINE CONNECTIONS WITHIN THE UNIT!

A gas leak can cause a fire in your home. Although, we have always used a gas dryer, and the clothes do have a fresher smell to them than an electric dryer. Any gas which may be in the area would be consumed when the gas flame was burning as normally the pilot remains lit throughout the drying cycle.

Smell


Have you recently painted or finished any woodwork or floors? A gas dryer will smell like gas when the vapors from paint or finishes reacts with flame. It can smell like gasoline.
