Hi thanks for the question no you don't need thermostats your heater is probably touching the heater housing so you would need a new heater thanks the appliance doc

Electric lift stopped 2/3 way up. There was also a burning smell. Won't work at all. Is there a manual overide?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There is no manual override on your dryer. Which is a good thing.

You do not want to run your dryer at this point.

The burning smell is burning lint. Your dryer is plugged up with lint. This is a dangerous situation. You could burn down your home.

Your dryer will not run because the dryer fan will shut down if the air flow is obstructed.

You have a hot air exhaust manifold where the hot air goes into a round bottom inlet up to a expanded hot air distribution headed into the dryer. This is usually plugged up.

This may also have caused the fuse to blow, a operating switch or high temperature limit switch to fail.

Go into the following website and put in your model number. You will get diagrams and component part numbers. Your model number is located on a label either on the face of the dryer when you open the door or on the side of the door.

Drier is running hot, smells like my clothes are burning, and it keeps blowing the fuse in the main panel.


Most probably a venting problem and probably caused the heating element to ground out in its casing. Easiest way to verify is turn your timer to 30min and if dryer starts heating without pushing the start button you got a bad element caused by bad venting most of the time.

When I pushed the start button on our dryer it made a funny noise and it sounded like sumething burned out. It just makes a mmmm sound when I try to start it and it won't turn on. It also kinda smelled...



Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

New heating element not working


You should check to see if the "high limit switch is burned out. Some models/Brands have 2. It should be on the outside casing of the heating element.

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

Disconnect the dryer from your vent completely,. pull dryer out 3 ft. from wall and test to see if the smell continues, You have to test for a few minutes to clear out any burning lint from vent restrictions. If the smell hoes away then you know you have venting problems. Also check on the grate that covers the element( the part you look through when you see the orange glow from the element) sometimes plastic or clothing burns onto this grate and needs to be cleaned off. I the smell remains, you will have to tear down the dryer to see if you can find the cause of the smell.

Dryer will not shut off or heat up


The problems are related. The timer advances when the thermostats sense that heat is being applied to the air in the dryer. With no heat, the sensors do not allow the time to advance.

You did not mention... Is your dryer gas or electric? If Electric, the most likely culprit is a burned out heating element or a faulty internal heat-sensing thermostat. Burned wires or a defective motor switch are less common factors.

If it's a gas dryer, suspect the glow sensor (could be something as simple as lint covering it), temperature control thermostats, or the heater switch on the motor.

Dryer burning smell


Have you painted or stained in your house or apartment recently? The smell gets everywhere, dryer, stove, heating unit. I recently primed with Kilz and the clothes from my dryer smelled burned. When I called for service, it was the first question the service person asked and said they made a lot of useless trips only to find nothing wrong with the appliance. That was my case. I had to rewash clothes and let the dryer run with towels for a while
