A burning smell inside the drum when I use the gas dryer


The burning smell is usually one of two things. If it smells like burning rubber the dryer belt is on its last leg and is slipping or stuck. If you are a diy'er the replacement of the belt is more time consuming than difficult. If it just a burning smell, then it is most likely lint built up inside the exhaust. You'll need to scoot the dryer out and get behind it to take off the dryer hose that vents from the dryer to the outside. Take off both ends for the most convenient and thorough cleaning. You'll need to blow out the hose with an air compressor and/or push a cylindrical brush through the hose or a rag on the end of a long stick. Be care not to puncture the hose! Once done, you are not finished cleaning. The back panel of the dryer needs to be removed to access the exhaust's internal pathway. You can try to clean it from the lint trap and the place in the rear where the dryer hose attaches, but be aware that cleaning cannot remove all the lint stuck to the exhaust pathway lining. At Home Depot, Lowe's or Menard's they sell brushes on wire, etc to clean the dryer's inside exhaust pathway.

Hope this helps!!

When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds


MORE TIMES THAN NOT, WHEN I HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM, IT TAKES A NEW MOTOR TO CORRECT THIS SITUATION. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING MOVES FREELY BEFORE CONDEMNING THE MOTOR THOUGH.

KENMORE DRYER WILL NOT START


It sounds like the motor has burned up or is burning up is why you are getting that smell. There could at the same time be a wire that has come loose or burned off that is causing it not to come on.

LG Gas dryer doesn't dry clothes in one cycle


Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.
