Why Is There An Odor In My Dryer Or Load?
Columbine Appliance & Fireplaces suggests that if you have been recently painting, varnishing, or staining in the area near your dryer that the area be well ventilated. Only when the odors or fumes have been removed from the area near the dryer, rewash and dry the load of clothes. When operating, a dryer pulls in the surrounding air that is used to dry the load. To prevent this from occurring do not operate the dryer when painting, varnishing, or refinishing in close proximity to the dryer.
