  1. I have a Whirlpool Cabrio Gas Dryer, Model # WGD5800BW0, purchased late into 2014. The past few cycles I noticed the tinge of a burning smell on my clothes. I make sure to change the lint screen after each load, and even popped the access hatch at the bottom to vacuum out the accumulated dust and hair. I checked the exhaust vents and cleaned what little buildup of lint there was. The air intake inside the drum shows visible scorch marks. I'm not going to run this thing until I'm certain I'm not about to start a fire. This thing is almost brand new! Does anyone have any idea as to what might be going on? Any help would be much appreciated.
  2. I have a Kenmore Microwave model: 721.66339011. It has started to put out an "electrical burn" smell when running. It appears to run fine still, heats, and works correctly. I have the top off and can run it. I can't see an smoke or isolate any particular part that seems to be the source of the smell. How do I troubleshoot this? Thanks for any help. Ray
  3. From the album appliance pics parts

    Gucus, from a Cabrio washer. The pump had failed and was probally left this way for a time. There was a nickle in the pump. Empty your pockets was on a big sticker at the front of the machine.
