Bad Smell Coming from Tumble Dryer?

If your tumble dryer is emitting an unusual smell, first check the filter and remove the lint and fluff.

If your washing machine is close by, it’s possible the aroma is coming from there, due to a build-up of detergent. Give it a service wash by running it empty on the highest possible temperature, then clean it thoroughly. How to clean a tumble dryer

It’s also advisable to give your tumble dryer a deep clean every few months.

  1. Turn off power supply.
  2. Clean around the drum area and in the crevices, using a stainless-steel cleaner.
  3. Remove the lint filter, brushing off accumulated fluff with your fingers. If your manufacturer recommends it, wash with warm water. Check manual first.
  4. Vacuum the lint filter area, using a narrow attachment to get at loose fluff, dust and hair.
  5. Leave the door open between cycles.
