Question about LG Dryers
My dryer smells like smoke after it runs for more than 30 minutes - there is no lint built up anywhere, we checked all the way out the vent
Open up the machine lint can get into many parts of the cabinet clean that out Also blow air (duster cans are ok) through the motor vents. this may prevent a FIRE.

SOURCE: dryer smells hot
run a load in fluff no heat and see if the smell develops again, if it does then I would suspect the motor or belt. generally most dryers are serviceable from the rear, the whole back panel usually, make sure you unplug it of course. make sure your not overloading your machine with clothes. It should never be more than half full ever. a slipping belt causes a burnout smell like when a car spins its tires at the races, if thats it you might need a new belt or your idler pulley may need to be bent a little so the belt runs tighter, study it

this should be quite easy to solve.remove the circuit breaker and sniff it. if it is the same smell you are getting when the dryer is running that is your problem.have an elecrtician check and replace with correct value.the dryer is most probably running on an overloaded circuit.

SOURCE: Burning smell
you can unplug the unit , and reomve the lower aces panel (3 screws along the front bottom of unit) youll probalby see an excess of lint built up in which case you can vacuum it out, and then check/clean and or replace your dryer vent
