Clean the condensor and filters
A build up of lint and fluff in your dryer can lead to a burning smell. Check the filter found in the door recess and remove any fluff build up, also remove the lower cover to reveal the condenser. Remove the condenser by turning the clips and pulling it out. Wash out all of the fluff build up by flushing water through the slots in the condenser with a hose or tap or simply plunge into a bucket of water until all of the fluff has been washed out. Re fit everything and try the dryer again, the smell may take a few minutes to clear. Watch our helpful video for more information.
