Question about Washing Machines
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You have a hazard situation. I recommend that you do not use the dryer until the issue is resolved. You may cause a house fire.
1.) The smoke may be coming from burning lint. The dryer needs to be completely disassembled and cleaned, especially around the gas funnel or electric heater. Also clean any grease or grim. Do not use a cleaning solution, use a dry rag.
2.) Less likely - You may have a worn motor pulley causing the drive belt to over heat. Inspect the area on the drum where the belt rides. Is there black dust?
