Question about AEG Dryers
I can see the wire through the vent holes on the back panel of the drum but have not as yet been able to grab it. i am not keen on dismantling the whole kaboodle...any ideas? aprt from ladies handwashing bras?
We got a bra wire stuck in ours it actually went through the tiny holes at the back and bridged the earth and live on the heater coils, and the rcd kicked in to cut it out before it could of caught fire. Never in a millions year would you think that could happen !

has the belt shredded and wrapped itself around the shaft? try to manually rotate the drum to see if the belt is free and the motor shaft moves. it sounds like the motor is stuck and the smell is the uncirculated heat at the back. let me know your results.
taking the lid off will gain access.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----
Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Fist thing to check is if the manual reset on the heater box has tripped. That dryer can be serviced from the front. Also, there is a heater upgrade kit that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts that has several updated parts in it for the top load electric dryers.
There are several things that can cause the reset to pop out. You may have a lint build up behind the shroud where the lint bucket fits.
This is a complicated appliance. You may wish to obtain a service manual for it.

This sound is caused by the drum tilting towards the rear panel just above the heating element housing and is due to the drum spindle wearing through the bearing. (Which can lead to it shearing off) after it`s cut it `s way into the bearing support bracket. A new rear bearing kit is needed. it will come with a foam support which is stuck on to the inside of the back panel as the drum rests against this when turning. the foam support on your dryer may have perished or gone flat due to the heat from the element and that is why your hearing the scaping sound. new foam ring from the bearng kit will cure the scraping.

Yes this is a common problem and can cause more serious problems such as getting caught in the motor and seizing it or even causing fires. If the rear seal is damaged or if it has become slighly out of place this could cause a small gap in between the drum and the back wall of the dryer cabinet. With a small gap, smaller things can now travel from your drum into the bottom area. However you can purchase a small items bag specifically made for dryers. You simply put all your items indies the mesh bag, and they no longer get eaten up or lost & destroyed.Hope this helps
