Question about Samsung 7.3 Cu. Ft. 9-Cycle Electric Dryer - Blue

Brand new dryer has smoke coming out of the dryer

We just had 2 brand new dryers delivered. They both smoked when started. The delivery guys said it was normal. Samsung Tech Support says it's not. We don't know if this is normal; or if the problem is in our vent or in the installation. I can't find anything in the manuals to address this. Can I get some help on this? Thanks.

They certainly should not be smoking on start up.
Try them without the vent hoses connected, and see what happens, if they still smoke then I would say they are faulty.
Plz rate my comments.
Thanks.
Make sure there is no internal packing in the drums that should have been removed.

As describe earlier, my dryer started smoking, and maing a burning smell from behind the drum. There is no evidence of lint buildup in the exhaust, and the dryer still starts smelling as if it is on fire...


i just had this problem. Did you notice the lint buildup under the lint drawer? Well, there is no way to recover that lint, it is not accessible by the consumer. So the lint bits get sucked in to the out take which actually pulls across the hot element. The "solution" is to replace the element and the parts surrounding. It is very expensive, and does not resolve the issue. The lint will continue to be drawn across to that area and build up and become a fire hazard. I am about to try Bosch for a solution, but that is what they have told me for now. Eventually this make/model of dryer will burn someone's house down. I am very glad I was home when the smoke detector went off. I will have to get a new dryer.

Brand new Lg dryer 2501, error code ''nP''


I had the same issue with two new dryers. The rep on the phone said nP can also indicate a power issue. It turned out one of the wires in the outlet had broken off. Rewiring the outlet solved the problem.

This is a problem I've seen before, or something similar. I think you've got a bad connection on the neutral wire. Either in the plug or at the panel. Have electrician check the neutral wire back to the panel from the plug.

Hi, the part is called relay. If its smokey, is short-circuiting. Find the info at the back of your HP drier, and get the part replaced.
