Whirlpool - Dryer Fire
Whirlpool Accu Electric Dryer - Complaint
COURTLAND, ALABAMA -- I was awaking last night by my smoke alarms going off. My house was full of smoke. We were able to determine it was the clothes dryer and remove it from the house. I had removed a gown from the dryer 1 and 1/2s earlier. I did not remove the other clothes. I did not smell or see anything at that time. Dryer was off, door was closed so light was off. I clean lint filter after each use. Dryer less than 3 years old.
Just be aware that this can happen and be safe.
