Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer

My dryer is making a strange noise (normally it is very quiet) and it smells like it is overheating. There does not seem to be anything coming out of the exhaust vent while it is on.

Trouble shoot moter on dryer


It may be the drive belt from the motor to the drum. If the dryer top flips up, you can see if the belt is intact, or is there a bottom panel that is removable? In any case the belt needs to be inspected. With that said, the 'strange odor' may very well be the motor. The motor / belt needs to be visually inspected. If anything is opened for inspection, be mindful of live wires and contacts.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

DLE2050 making strange spinning noise


I guess I wasnt clear enough. The dryer works ok, except for the rattling sound now. It will start when i push the start button, it heats, and dries the clothes. Just noisy where before the flow sensor went off, it was pretty quiet.

Makes a really loud buzzing noise during operation


Unit uses a Magnetron and likely a power board called an inverter to run it. Someone would have to open the unit in a way where they might pinpoint where the sound is coming from and then take action--does not of course sound normal or good to me.

Dryer cuts off after 10 minutes


Agree with you. Make sure the lint collector is clean and ditto for the vent. If it goes up to roof have to check it there also to make sure there are no obstructions whatsoever in vent line. Unit is turning off because it is overheating. If lint collector and vent is squeaky clean and unit blows out like crazy then the temp switch is opening up prematurely and might need replacement or jumping - your call.

I've got a 2002 Escape, and all of a sudden when temps dropped below 0 (here in MN) I get a strong exhaust smell inside the vehicle ??? Where shoulod I start looking for the problem ? Should I temporarily...


ok exhaust smells tend to intensify in cold weather. your vehicle is using more fuel the colder it gets. once the engine warms up does the smell go away? if it does, then i wouldn't worry.

Overheating/burnt rubber smell


classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed


Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced
