I have a Kenmore gas dryer that is leaking gas. The utility company first discovered the problem when they fixed some gas leaks in pipes in the laundry room. At the time, they determined that the gas dryer was also leaking gas and that the connector hose had been connected to the back of the dryer without the use of any sealant. They added sealant, but still detected gas coming from inside the dryer. A Sears technician confirmed the gas leak. He detected a gas leak both inside the dryer and in the flex pipe that connects the dryer to the gas pipe.
I believe that this dryer contains a serious manufacture defect that poses a serious safety hazard.
