It sounds like the sheet was pulled into the fan of the blower. You may need to take the dryer apart to remove it. If you can still see the sheet then you can try pulling it out but I would turn off the breaker or unplug the dryer before doing that.

SOURCE: dryer stops and won't start again

hi
Step 1: Remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on.

Step 2: Remove the sprayer arm, the screen, the pump housing, a bolt, the upper impeller, the food disposer blade, a spacer plate, the impeller hood, a flat plate, an O-ring, and the lower impeller. Lay the parts out in order as you disassemble them so that you'll be able to reassemble them properly.

Step 3: Clean the parts thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. If any parts are worn, replace them with new ones made for the dishwasher.

Step 4: Replace any seals, such as the O-ring or other washers, with new ones.

Step 5: Reassemble the pump, keeping the parts in order.

To reach the water pump, remove the sprayer arm and screen and then the pump housing. Remove the bolt, and the pump components can be disassembled.

On some dishwashers, the lower impeller serves as a drain pump. This type of system usually has a reversible motor; machines with nonreversible motors have drain valves, as detailed previously. If your machine possesses this impeller pump system, and the water will not drain from the dishwasher, clean the lower pump impeller. This may solve the problem. Otherwise, call a professional service person.

SOURCE: Brand new dryer. **** went down lint filter area

You may have to remove the front panel to enter the air passages and blower fan. Try feeding a vacuum cleaner hose (remove the metal hose end) into the area behind the filter to see if can pick up whatever dropped into it. Hope this helps!

It sounds like something clanking and starts to smell


Turn your vacuum over and look where the brush is, there could be several things wrong with it but you should be able to locate the problem here. It sounds as is you sucked up a penny or rock or something hard hence the clanking. The smell is either the object in questing is getting stuck by the brushes and creating a smell most likely a burnt rubber smell I would assume.

The only thing that I can think of that could produce a urine/ammonia smell is a shorted capacitor that is leaking. But normally when that happens the dryer motor will not start.

My dryer smells like it is on fire.


This is a sure sign you have airflow problems in your dryer.

1. Check all of the ducting from the lint filter.... all the way THROUGH the outside wall for signs of blockage / ANY lint build up.
2. Check airflow at the dryer exit by removing the duct connection. The airflow should push a relaxed hand away from the dryer vent connection.
a. If it does not do this the problem can be
1) Excessive lint inside the dryer ducting
2) Lint filter clogged with dryer fabric sheet material (wash with vinegar and water then soap and water)
3) Area around lint filter blocked / restricted by lint
4). Broken blower wheel.

Until you resolve this problem: I highly recommend you stop using your dryer as it really can catch fire.

Lint filter light comes on and smells like smoke from inside the dryer. No lint in lint filter


You need to vacuum the lint from the entire vent system from the door to the outside vent. Wash the lint screen in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener sheet residue which plugs the screen.

Dryer will not dry clothes in single cycle, and towels smell burnt why?


Check the entire air vent system for lint obstruction. Remove the lint filter and wash in hot water and detergent--fabric softener sheets will build deposits on this screen, which restricts air flow.

They make a 'air vent' lint cleaner and there is a handy brush made for cleaning your fridge coils that would work great. After you clean it, toss a 'Bounce' dryer sheet in to freshen it up!

Dryer stopped working after 2-3 minutes


Go out and buy you a duct cleaner. It looks like a dome shaped broom. Clean your duct from the outside and if you can from the inside. Also if you use fabric softener sheets, clean your lint filter with soap and water periodically (every 3 months would be optimal) to remove the clear residue the dryer sheets can leave behind.

Good Luck!

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
