My Bosch Axxis dryer is a little over a year old. I put in

Resolved Question:

My Bosch Axxis dryer is a little over a year old. I put in a new load after it had already been running for over an hour and immediately there was a burning smell, which subsided when I turned off the dryer.

Was using the dryer much of the day and kept cleaning the lint filter, and the burning smell happened AFTER I had just cleaned it again.

Any ideas?

gst85 :

hi there.has the dryer even been cleaned out

Customer:

only the lint filter. what's strange about it is that I was having a problem with the washer today and the handyman in my apt building had pulled it out to see if it was leaking (because an alarm had gone off). He did a temp. fix of a valve and then a few hours later the dryer acted up. Could his moving it around have disturbed something?

gst85 :

perhaps the exhust vent was not connected properly so it may have came loose.

Customer:

Would that cause a burning smell so quickly?

gst85 :

yes sir it would .

gst85 :

dont think there is anything wrong with your dryer

gst85 :

i

Customer:
