Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

Replaced bad thermal cutoff on Whirlpool dryer LEC6848an with new kit FSP 279769 (cutoff & t-stat). Also, cleaned duct, vent, chute, etc. Heats now, but had to shut it off after a few seconds due to...


It is common to have a slight burning smell in the dryer immediately following a clean and inspect of the cabinet. Although you may have cleaned the dryer cabinet interior and the ventilation ducting, dust particles often get stirred up and will settle on the heating element. These small particles will eventually burn off and should not create any hazards to the operation of the appliance. Allow to run for a few minutes and monitor. The smell should go away.

Dryer shutting off too early. Faint smell of something burning?


Check the vent for clogging condition that will turn off unit and cause it to overheat. If vent goes up to roof check up there also - that is where mine was clogged with a sort of paper mache clog!!!!!

Dryer stoped running


Your drive belt may have broken if it smelled like rubber burning. If that is the case then your motor bearing are worn out or something has been lodged between your dryer drum and the dryer housing. If the smell was the odor of burning plastic, then your motor is probably burned up.

Scraping noise with burning smell


You quite possibly have something like a penny or a paper clip stuck at the heat duct. ***First-shut off the electric to the dryer***. From behind the dryer, remove the heat tunnel and clean it out. You will be surprised how much lint gets past the filter. It's an easy repair, just a few screws. While you're back there, look around for any buildup in other areas.

Kenmore elite HE4 electric dryer


If this is a Kenmore Elite front loader, taking the back off isn't going to tell you much. The heating element is inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side. More than likely you have an accumulation of lint on the heating element housing and its beginning to smolder. Running the dryer on low will not change the fact that you have lint in close proximity to a glowing element. It will still burn. Here is a link you can look at that gives you some advice on dryers:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

You will need to unplug the dryer and remove the lower panel under the door to gain access to the heating circuits. If you have lint backing up into the dryer, you need to investigate why. If its been a while since you've inspected your dryer ventilation ducting, it would probably be a good idea to do so. Everything is in the link I provided for you. I hope this helps.

PS Conitued running of a dryer in this condition can cause the heating circuits to overheat and fail and/or cause a fire.
