You must have a sock or a lot of lint in the heater area. I presume this unit is electric. A complete cleaning is reccommended. If this unit is gas, get a technician right away.

My hotpoint tumble dryer almost caught on fire the house was full of smoke can l claim


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.

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.

I just repalced the vents since I moved the dryer from one room to another. The dryer works find but I am concerned about the white smoke emitting from the vent in the ceiling?


are you sure that it is smoke that you are seeing and not dust or drywall dust as you said you replaced the vents. It could be dust from the work you have done. Check to be sure it is actually SMOKE and not something else. If it is smoke do not run the dryer anymore until you have it accessed .

When you have smoke coming from a dryer, the most likely cause is lint on the element. Clean the element, clean the lint trap filter, (AFTER EACH AND EVERY LOAD), and make sure your vent is clear, free from lint and moisture.

Brand new dryer has smoke coming out of the dryer


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.
