Only if you can prove that the fire/smoke was caused by a machine defect and not a lack of cleaning the unit out once in awhile.

How can i test my dryer to find out if the motor is bad

If the drum goes around, your motor is working.
If the drum doesn't go around, the belt could be off or broken, or the motor could be bad.
Try to listen for the motor starting up as you turn the dryer on. If it sounds like it is running (an initial 'bump' followed by a quiet hum), chances are it is a belt problem.
If you can't hear the motor running, or it is a loud buzz, or there is the smell of burning insulation or smoke, chances are your motor is bad.
It is also possible that the selector switch that controls everything is not turning the motor on (bad selector) or the overheat safety switch is malfunctioning, but these need to be tested by taking the dryer apart.

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.

unplug dryer....if you take the top back panel off, there should be six screws and look in the top left hand corner there should be a schematic for the dryer. All appliances have then located in this area, unless someone has took them out. Hope this helped Tim

Dryer smells like its burning

Check the connections to make sure that they are tight enough... sounds like a loose connection...

Check the last couple of paragraphs of this is the same with a dryer...

Smells like burnt diesel or very hot smell

Can't help thinking that either you don't have the revised operating instructions, or the "Sensor Dry System" is not working properly. Download the revised instructions here [ ] and see if this helps. Otherwise have the sensors in the machine tested.

Crosley squeeked we oiled the pullys

Did it smell like burnt rubber or maybe plastic burning? After you try to run it for about 10 seconds (and it won't run) then you touch the motor (with the dryer unplugged) it is hot?
It sounds like the brushes could be dirty due to the lag you placed on the dryer when it was installed incorrectly possibly.
While it is plugged in, are the lights coming on in the dryer when you open it?
It could be a fuse if it has no electric going to it (the light does not turn on)
Will the drum spin if you attempt to turn it manually?
THe pulley or another item on the belt system could have burned (ruined) when it was installed incorrectly.
Try to walk through each piece of the system that was affected by teh incorrect installation and see if there may be an item that is not working correctly; this could be an easy fix.
Hope this helps

Smells like it's burning and smoke coming out of chimney vent

Get the filter housing out of the machine and wash it out. Blow out the blowers housing. Change the control thermostat.It mounts right next to the fuse on the back:
