Hi my 2006 3.2 blows puffs of un-burnt diesel smoke intermittently after it has been driven in traffic


have the variable vanes in the turbo checked for correct operation
there is an actuator that is vacuum
electrical sensor controlled and the vanes may be sticking at slow engine operations as on traffic
the smoke color indicates incorrect air/fuel ratio and the turbo is a point to investigate

Puff of smoke from display


Short in board or behind. Do not run the dryer. Remove back cover and look for obvious black marks. Replace as necessary. Dryers get banged around and hopefully it is an easy find. It could be the board itself. I'll hope for a small short that can be fixed with electric tape.

Check the fan speed position switch and if you have only one speed for the fan or no speeds then look for the fan speed resistors as burnt out.

My Whirlpool Duet dryer has a strong. "Burnt"


Hi

The burnt smell usually comes when the motor is going bad, as the unit works I won't recommend you to use it for a long time and get the motor checked-replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
