Single old (disabled) lady having scares from the odor of burning rubber coming from my dryer. I barely survive on a fixed income and cannot replace my dryer. My best guess is that a belt is going o


its probably the drum rollers inside the unit that are dragging on the drum and making this burnt rubber odor, it would need to be dis-assembled and rollers replaced,along with a thorough interior cleaning and possibly a new drum belt, all parts about $50

My dryer flew off of a dolly when loading it on a trailer to move it. It smells like rubber is burning when I turn the dryer on. It was working fine until we moved the dryer. Could it be the belt is loose?


If the dryer fell some distance, the drum is probably out of alignment.

If the drum is not spinning at all, something has jammed the drum and the belt is being overheated by the motor pulley.

If the drum is spinning and there is a rubber smell, the drum has been knocked off of its rollers and/or glides.

In either case, the dryer needs to be opened. Click the link below:

Loud noices when running,some burned rubber smell


The only rubber part is the belt that drives the drum around. The belt rides on a tensioner which has a pulley on it with a bearing built into it. When the bearing goes bad the pulley will not turn freely causing the belt to get hot and smell. Its time for a new pully and bearing assembly for your dryer

I have a used GE DCLR333ETOAA model and last time was used it work for few mins. but smell like burn and then stop working. What you think it is?


If the machine quit and won't restart, I would be looking at the drum belt. Some machines will not start if the belt is broken. If the smell you are getting is more electrtical than a rubber smell you need to be checking the thermostats and make sure the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside is not full of lint because the safety thermostat will shut the dryer down so it doesn't overheat.

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.

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.

My dryer is giving off a strong odor. Smells a little like rubber or metal on metal. It still works great. Is still getting hot and drying clothes. Can you help?


A few things could be going on here. If you are hearing metal on metal sound I would start with the blower wheel itself. Sounds like it either came loose from the motor shaft or it's broke. Other things could be a bad drum roller that has frozen up causing the rubber smell. Your idler pulley could be frozen up and the belt is slipping on the drum. Go to this link http://www3.sears.com/ and post your model number to get a breakdown of your dryer. It wil show the areas I mentioned. Catriver..post back.
