Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, re-wash and dry the clothing.
If the dryer is electric, is it being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
If the dryer is gas, there may be a gas leak.
Turn off the gas supply line, leave your house and then call
your local gas company.
