Question about GE DBSR453EBWW Electric Dryer
When I dry my clothes, there seems to be a burning smell coming from the dryer...Also, a puddle of water forms underneath the dryer and the metal hose thing that connects the dryer to the wall is wet on the inside...It seems as though there is condensation on the inside of the dryer door when you open it and the clothes are still wet and hot.
You have a serious clog somewhere in your dryer exhaust ventilation. I would recommend you STOP using the dryer immediately and clean both the interior and all the vent ducting from where it exits the dryer to where it exits the home. the burning is coming from lint build up in and around the heating element and its beginning to smolder. This is a potential fire hazard and may end up causing the heating circuits to fail. The condensation comes from the the inability of the hot air (which is mixed with humidity from your clothing) condensating inside the vent duct. The lint starts to collect and get wet to the point of saturation. Then it begins to cause water to form and leak out of the ducting and on to your floor. You do not want this condensation inside the dryer where the heating circuits are. The following link will provide with some guidance for future reference:
Pay particular attention the paragraph where it discusses proper dryer ventilation. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
