Dryer has a burning smell

My dryer has a burning smell that transfers to the clothes. Is there a way to open it up and clean it out. I have taken our the dryer link screen and cleaned out lint from the inside area also.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi did you ever figure out the problem with your dryer? I'm having a similar issue.

Kindest regards,

The smell is actually lint within the body of the dryer that has caught on fire. Please clean your dryer out immediately!!! I have had the same problem. Remove the front panel below the dryer door ( two bolts on the very bottom, one on each side), and give it a good cleaning!
