Check your vent to the outside to make sure it is clear of obstructions, lint build up, water retention due to a sagging vent, etc.

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.

Dryer smells hot and back panel near heating


your duct is clogged or the limit snapstat is not working. turn dryer on and go outside to the duct vent , their should be a minimum temp of 10 degrees, and a maximum 15 degrees outside. also sometimes just cleaning the lint from inside the dryer, can cause this smell for no more than 5 minutes. thanks karl
