Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer in my stackable washer/dryer quit

Yesterday my load of clothes finished in the dryer and all the sudden it smelled like something was burning. I opened the door and there was nothing but the clothes were very hot. I unplugged the unit and opened a window. When everything was cool I plugged it back in but absolutely nothing happens when I try to turn on the dryer. I took the back panel off and I can manually turn the motor so the belt is fine but I think the motor blew. Can you help?

Washed clothes with gasoline on them. Put into dryer now washer and dryer smell like gasoline. How do I get it out?


To remove gas (petrol) smell from clothing, soak overnight in baby oil (use like you would downy), then wash in baking soda, then wash with normal detergent. It will rid "gas smell" from an entire basket of clothes. Air Dry ONLY
From ehow website:
Step1
Buy a bottle of baby oil. Since gas is an oil based product it is going to take an oil based product to clean the gas out of your clothing. Baby oil is a great product to use as it shouldn't, in most cases, cause further damage to your clothing.
Step2
Soak your clothes with a bit of laundry detergent, water, and a generous portion of baby oil. Also dab some right on the stain before soaking.
Step3
Swash your clothes in the water for a while and let them sit for about five minutes. Transfer the clothes into your washer, once again remembering not to mix them with any other clothing, and let the cycle finish.
Step4
Wash the clothes. If you have a top load washer, let it partially fill up about 1/4 of the way with water. Put some of the baby oil in the wash with the clothes and swash it around a bit. Once the washer cycle begins, add the detergent and let the cycle finish. Make sure that your gas coated clothes are the only clothes you put in the wash.
Step5
Dry your clothing. Make sure you only AIR DRY on a clothes line these clothes. It could take more than one wash to get all the oil out of your clothing. If you use the dryer after the first, or even the second time, you could risk starting a fire in your dryer.
Step6
Check and see if any smell remains in your clothing. If the smell of gas remains on the clothing repeat the wash with baby oil again until the smell is gone.

After completing a load of clothing, the laundry sometimes has a moldy smell. If it doesn't smell right away, it smells after wearing the clothing and sweat a bit. This is not a body smell - this is a...


It sounds like your leaving the clothes in the washer long after the cycle is finished. Once your clothes smell from the washer they will smell moldy dry.

Clothes come our smelling bad


Run a load empty on the hottest setting with a cup of bleach.

Then, after finished using the machine each day, leave the door open for a few hours to allow the rubber seal to dry.

Mildew smell on clothes


I have the same machines. Try using an old towel and detergent solution( use rubber gloves) and thouroughly clean the door seal. It can be just full of old lint, dirt, etc. in the grooves. Also try some oxyclean in your next load. That will help get rid of the odor also. These washers stay warm quite a long time and clothing will mildew fast in warm weather, but you probably already know that.

Gas smell


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.
