    FIXED YNED4655EW1 Amana Electric dryer - kerosene smell

    I’ve noticed my electric dryer has been putting out a kerosene smell lately. When I open the door as it’s running I smell it quite strongly. I haven’t noticed any transfer to clothing though. I have done some woodworking in the area recently so I was thinking some wood dust got in around the...

    Re: Amana oven model ARG7301WW MFG P1143324NWW sn 9712194410, propane. After years of slow starts, "boom" starts, and slow heats, but no other problems, I decided finally to replace the bake igniter. I bought igniter 31940001 and installed it. I now have no booms, and rapid starts, and rapid...

    MGS5775BDW Maytag oven burner intermittent, smells like gas

    https://youtu.be/pLOcjKZBL4w I replaced the oven igniter about a year ago after the oven started exhibiting signs of not heating and smelling of gas. The new igniter seemed to resolve the issue mostly, for a while. Recently the oven began doing the same thing, as seen in the attached video...

    BW207AW3 Old Kelvinator burning smell

    Hi. The washer had completed a cycle but left a burning smell and wouldn't turn on. After a short while I tried to turn it on to the rinse cycle to see if the motor was still working.

    Whirlpool LE7000XM not starting

    A couple nights ago the dryer stopped working mid cycle. Pushing the start button did absolutely nothing. I noticed the last couple weeks that the dryer seemed to hum for about 1 second before it started to tumble. I know (knew?) nothing about dryers so, naturally, I unplugged it and started...

    Refrigerator smells like chemicals and water tastes like chemicals.

    Hello! I have a GE refrigerator (model GTS18KHPVRBB) that is omitting a calcium like smell and the water & ice coming out tastes bad. I'll admit that we didn't change the filter on the refrigerator for about 2 years. Once the water and ice started tasting bad, we bought a new filter. However...

    Series 70 Mod 110. Not draining completely, musty smell from water

    Hi All. This toploader has me baffled. There is always a 1/2 - 3/4" of water in the outer tub and it doesn't take long for it to start smelling musty. It spins beautifully, pumps out very quickly, but when the cycle ends and the motor stops, the residual water in the pump/drain hose is forced...
