Bosch nexxt 500 series dryer producing intermittent gas smell when running. wife says the smell has even permeated the clothes a time or two, but I haven't noticed it. heat exchage box? if so, how hard...


A few things to check...

First, check that the dryer vent is not clogged. You'll have to go outside to check. If you are not sure of a clog, disconnect from inside and have your wife hold a flashlight by the vent, then go outside to see if you can see it. This will also cause laundry to dry slower than it used to (your wife may have a feeling if this is the case).

Second, make sure you don't have negative pressure in the house (large house fans are good for cooling but move too much air out so the dryer cannot vent its exhaust gasses well). You can check by opening an exterior door about an inch and check if it swings open with a gush of wind. Even houses without whole-house fans can do this if you have enough bathroom fans and furnace fans going.

Third, If it is a smell of natural gas, then you should call a service technician because the valve is not opening/closing correctly (or fast enough) if you have a pilot-less starter.

What is the problem if it smells like kerosene inside the dryer while in operation? Clothes smell like it when removed also,


did you just paint or stain anywhere in your home?all the dryer does is move air and the stain smell gets sucked into the dryer,when it heats the smell gets into the clothing,if that's not the case,the motor can smell like this if it's overheating,check the dryer to see if it needs a clean out,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,has to be removed to do this,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,and make sure the vent line isn't blocked up,if it is you can blow it out with a leaf blower or a shop vac that blows on the other end

When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell gas upon opening the door. If the dryer is not running, you do not smell a gas odor. Sometimes our clothes also have a gas smell.This just started a week...


Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of 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.

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.

Gas Smell


Lester, more than likley you have a venting issue. Check to see that the dryer vent is not pinched off or the vent outlet is not clogged or blocked by something. Ninety percent of the time this problem is associated with a clogged venting system. Remove the bottom panel by taking a putty knive on each end, pushing on the clips and pulling the panel forward. Check to see how much lint is by the burner. Unlpug the unit to check this. Catriver..post back.
