Bad smell when dryer runs...?

HI! Have a "Whirlpool Imperial" Ultimate Care HD super capacity plus dryer. I guess its about 5-6 years old. It dries fine but it emits a slight rotten egg type oder. My wife thinks its something under or in back or on the left side. I think its internal. In any event we are at a loss as to what it could be! Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks, Bill

Dryer smell all most always come from ambient air. If not a burnt wire smell. Have you done any painting in house, laid a floor, used solvents, dead rats or mice? Access of lint in dryer will cause burnt smell also.
