I believe that there is an electrical short in a component or the wiring harness. Anytime you have this type of issue we recommend calling a service technician to come out & diagnose the problem.

You've done some excellent trouble shooting but I don't believe it's a venting issue. I would take this situation more seriously. I have provided two links below for you to review while you're waiting for your expert response. I hope this helps and you might try waiting for that response before using your unit again.

Hello Linda73,
You can look in your owner's manual, if don't obtain one you can go to Manage My Life and click on the manuals. Another suggestion I have for you is to contact your gas company to make sure it's not a gas leak. I attached the link below for Manage My Life. Hope this helps!!

It helps when we can see the inside of an appliance to find the problem. With a washer the first step is getting inside the washer. While you wait for the expert, you can check the first link below that has instructions on how to take off cabinet on this model. The second link is to the schematics at Sears Parts Direct. It provides an exploded view of the parts to view.

I just saw a few other inquiries. I cleaned the vents, but have not removed the back panel to further clean any lint (not sure how to take the back panel off). The dryer is a Kenmore, Model no. 11078732700. The odor is not coming from any extraneous sources - just the dryer. It is a gas dryer.

I understand how important it is to have your appliances working properly. While you are waiting for you expert answer, I have found a link that may be able to provide some information. I would suggest that you check the drain hose, make sure it's not kinked or clogged. It is most likely the pump giving you the problem, but this is just to make sure. I hope that this will help you.
