Parts are likely unavailable. I would treat yourself to a new machine 19 years is very good.

We have this samsung dryer and my towels smell like stale lockerroom smells and it is very bothersome. All of our other clothes smell fine, but the towels smell horrible.


I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

Start buttonhums drum dont turn


It could be the motor. And if you are smelling a burnt smell it most likely is. The cheapest way to fix this is to try and find a refurbished motor. But to tell you the truth you may just want to get a whole new machine as it will cost just a little more then a motor costs. If you have a warranty on your dryer then you're in luck, but if not check first for the price of a refurbished motor then price out a new dryer. Hope that helps and good luck.

Towels smell burnt after washing.


Are you sure the burnt smell is coming from the washer and not from the dryer? If you've placed a rubber backed rug or other similar article of clothing, it is not uncommon for that rubber backing to melt and get embedded in the heated duct of the dryer . Not sure this helps but if you can clarify the point at which the burnt smell is first observed that would help..
Thanks
