I did two loads of laundry yesterday and they both came out smelling burnt….
All of the clothes/sheets have been washed before so it’s not a new item of clothing adding a weird smell. We empty out the lint trap every time we do laundry, and a quick look into the marchine with a flashlight doesn’t show anything amiss, even inside the door and under the lint trap… I didn’t run the dryer for longer than usual and the clothes were still a tiny bit damp when I took them out, so it wasn’t an issue of running the dryer for too long. Same detergent and dryer sheets as usual….
Any ideas what cold be wrong? From a quick Google search, it sounds like it might be a belt going out (although it doesn’t smell like burnt rubber). Or it could be lint caught somewhere in the vent, right?
I just want some input before I call my landlord, because she tends to downplay problems. I feel like this could be a fire hazard and I would like someone to come look at the dryer. That’s reasonable, right?
