Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.

Problems with a clothes dryer normally involve the heat source or the motor that tumbles the clothes: clothes don't dry because it doesn't get hot enough or the drum doesn't rotate.

Sulfur smell when I open empty dryer

FIRST: Is this an electric dryer or a gas dryer? IF IT IS GAS CALL FOR HELP IMMEDIATELY

What to do if Your Dryer Smells Like Rotten Egg
Experts recommend leaving the house immediately if you smell rotten eggs near a source that uses natural gas as a fuel. That's because a leaking gas line can lead to explosions if it's allowed to build up in sufficient quantities. Leave the house and do not turn on or off any lights. Doing so may cause a small spark that could ignite the gas. Do not use cell phones or door bells, or anything with an electronic switch. It's also important not to smoke around gas lines or leave open flames near them. Call authorities immediately if you suspect a gas leak. Most fire departments are trained in detecting and sealing a gas leak. Your utility provider may have more information on who to contact in the event of a leak.

Mercaptan is a chemical added to natural gas which smells of sulfur or rotten eggs so you can detect a leak. It may be a small leak, but it is never safe to have leaking gas. Better safe than sorry - make the call to your fire department or utility company now!!

If it is an electric dryer, it usually means you have some debris or slimy buildup. Check around and inside all of the rubber seals and clean with bleach. Also check thoroughly for any built up lint inside the machine that may have been rotting.

Vehicle smells like natural gas after stopping when vehicle is hot

I think you are getting a rotten egg smell,not natural gas. I would check for exhaust leaks from the catalytic converter for starters. Have you checked the grill at the base of the windshield and on top of the firewall? folks have been known to drop eggs down there as a prank.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer (ggq9800pw1) - No Heat

You have a leak somewhere in your gas system, Either from the gas valve or some other tubing. In this situation unless you understand how it works I would recommend getting a tech out to look at your system. That way you know that it is being done properly.

Whirlpool mod # WGD5300SQ0 gas dryer gets hot but does not stay hot Is it a thermostat or radiant sensor or something else

by all means when dealing with natural gas consult only trained professionals....as natural gas does not have an odor..the odor that you smell is an actually additive that has been place for just this reason.
