GE DDE5900RALAD electric clothes dryer

A friend called and said when she tried to run her dryer yesterday it made a nasty electrical smell and she shut it off right away. The circuit breaked didn't trip. She later ran it with the heat off and it seemed to be OK but she is afraid to try it with heat again.

I looked online at the parts available for this unit the only thing that strikes me as a possibility is fried heating elements. Anyone ever work on dryers and have any thoughts?

Dryers seem to be one of the more reliable devices in my life and I have never had to work on one. Guess that's about to change when I have a look at it later today.

Re: fried clothes dryer?

Well, it was my lucky day. In the words of a car repair tech I was "unable to duplicate the problem". It worked fine, quiet and no smell when we ran it. So I didn't have to spend the afternoon mucking with it. :) But we'll keep an extra close eye on it for awhile.
