My wife smelled gas when clothes dryer had been unused for two days Larry K. • Baton Rouge, LA • July 14, 2014 Appliance: General Electric Gas Dryer DBXR453GT5WW My Repair & Advice After leak checking all of the gas fittings and tubing, I found that the gas valve was barely leaking. Since replacing the drum, no more problems, other than I twisted the 17 year old drum drive belt during the re-installation of the drum. Replaced the belt and now all is good. Saved around $400 compared with buying a comparable new gas dryer. Was this review helpful to you?
