If you just turned it on and it smells for only a short period it may just be that dust settled on the element during the period of non use.
if it goes away after 15 minutes to half hour it should be okay. just stay with it for that time!

Like when you first turn on the heat in some homes you smell that too!

New dryer smells hot


It is not unusual for new appliances, espicially high heat ones like a dryer to smell hot. Also if this is your first gas appliance it might smell different than your old dryer if it was electric. Keep an eye on it when using it to see if you see any smoke. Also check your venting to make sure it is all clear with no blockage.

Can a dryer heating element smoke if dryer is not running?


Something fried and is shorted. Unplug this unit right away. There are a few sensors on this that could have overheated as they failed causing this smoke and smell, but UNPLUG UNIT!!! Then look at what has fried.

my daughter had a maytag dryer doing the same thing. I took it apart and the bracket that holds the drum broke off. it is cheaply made. what happens it that this causes the drum not to spin freely and causes a lot of resistence on the motor. the motor will get over worked and also the belt will slip causing smell and heat. my daughter ran hers for a while it was doing this and it also messed up the motor. we just bought a new dryer. all these parts are available, but it might be cheaper in the long run to get another one.

Dryer smelled of burning plastic, smoked stopped turning on


check the power cord itself, if you see on the back side of the cord a burnt or blackened spot then the cord is the issue
