Lester, more than likley you have a venting issue. Check to see that the dryer vent is not pinched off or the vent outlet is not clogged or blocked by something. Ninety percent of the time this problem is associated with a clogged venting system. Remove the bottom panel by taking a putty knive on each end, pushing on the clips and pulling the panel forward. Check to see how much lint is by the burner. Unlpug the unit to check this. Catriver..post back.

Sewer smell in clothes

The tub is probably pretty dirty. Try cleaning the washer with CLR.

Burning chemical smell coming from the gas dryer

Hi,
You first thought was probably the correct one...the fumes from the new paint may take a few days to disspate enough not to react with the heat of the dryer...I would give it a few dyas to clear before looking any further...

When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell gas upon opening the door. If the dryer is not running, you do not smell a gas odor. Sometimes our clothes also have a gas smell.This just started a week...

Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of luck.

Clothes smell like gas

STOP USING THE DRYER AND CALL A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON TO TEST ALL GAS LINE CONNECTIONS WITHIN THE UNIT!

A gas leak can cause a fire in your home. Although, we have always used a gas dryer, and the clothes do have a fresher smell to them than an electric dryer. Any gas which may be in the area would be consumed when the gas flame was burning as normally the pilot remains lit throughout the drying cycle.

Smell

Have you recently painted or finished any woodwork or floors? A gas dryer will smell like gas when the vapors from paint or finishes reacts with flame. It can smell like gasoline.
