Question about KitchenAid KEYS850LQ Electric Dryer
The dryer works fine, but sometimes when it is done I smell a burnt smell and it seems that the back grate where the heat comes out is halfway burnt or darker on the grate. So, I have no complaints about the functionality of the dryer, but I just don't want to be at risk for a fire. Is this normal???
I used Bartender's Friend. You can find it at Home Depot. Its best to put it on a sponge, rub it on and let it set for about 5. Then scrub with a steel pot cleaner or copper one. It hard to do since the grid is in the back of the dryer but it came off!! Basically, clean it like you would a burnt pot or pan with the Bartender's Friend.

Darkning of the element housing at that point is normal the smell may be coming from lint on the heating element ..may pay to have it cleaned to be sure there is not excess lint accumilation ..or if it has a bottom panel pull it off and clean the base and around the element housing or if filter is on top remove back and clean..still may have some odor simply from lint floating around but better safe than sorry
