Question about Dryers
I cleaned all the lint out of the back (inside) of my dryer, and especially the lint that was collecting on top of the hot air intake tube - the lint was actually starting to burn onto the unit. This must have been what was causing the ''burning / smokey smell'' that was coming from the dryer.
Once we reassembled to unit - the dryer works fine and
the burning / smoking smell is now gone HOWEVER it does not blow hot air now.
