Dyrer gets to hot

My wife was drying clothes and she said the dryer was making a funny noise, not real loud but a noise. Smoke was coming out the front and part of the ring inside was red. Te dryer seems to heat up really fast. The vent part inside where the heat comes out, you can barely touch. Help?

    Is air exiting from the dryer exhaust vent? If the exhaust vent is blocked or the blower motor not running you will see this problem. I would suggest that you remove the clothes from the dryer, set the dryer to fluff / no heat, start it running and check for air exiting the exhaust vent. If a good amount of air is not comming out, remove the vent pipe from the rear of the dryer and check again. If there is good exhaust air, then the vent pipe is clogged and needs cleaning. If not the dryer has a problem. If the vent tube is the problem removal of the blockage ( cleaning the entire length to the outlet ) should solve the overheating problem, but if the problem is in the dryer a serviceman may need to be called.

Make sure to wash the lint screen with detergent and hot water to remove fabric softener deposits which block air flow. The noise may have been the air impeller (fan) which may have come loose from the motor. Have you checked for air flow from the exhaust? If nothing, look to the impeller. Hope this helps!
