Clothes smell from gas dryer
Posted 24 July 2005 - 10:30 AM
I'm having trouble removing the exhaust chute for cleaning (because it's curved, it won't slide out of the frame). Do I have to remove the drum to get this out?
Any ideas? Or what might becausing the gas-like smell?

Also, your washer could have a build-up of mold or mildew that is making the closes smell when dried.
Dryer smell service calls are almost never from anything wrong with the dryer.

In any gas dryer with a gas smell, I always start with a thorough leak check, for CYA if nothing else. Use a thick bubble leak detector solution and dab in on all gas connections, internal and external. Let sit a few minutes and look for the honeycomb. Wipe off the pipes and joints thoroughly when finished. Sometimee, you find leaks where you least expect them, as told in this war story.
