ok..

Symptoms:
- Attempted to start dryer
- Heard poof or popping sound and breaker tripped
- Reset breaker and tried again
- This time flames shot out of top and bottom of dryer

At this point I backed off...shut off the gas to the dryer and will be cleaning out lint. I also tried the dryer on 'puff' cycle i believe [no gas] and the motor worked fine.

From my 0 knowledge of these things ether the ignitor is bad ? Lint catching on fire ? gas leak ?

Any ideas or help. I am going to try again without the vent attached and give it a good vaccum.

Should I not bother ?

thanks!!

You can try disassembling your dryer and thoroughly vacuuming it out.  If that doesn't fix it, then you have a weird electrical problem and you need a seasoned professional to come to your home.
