Samsung dryer smokes or smells
Dryer odors can come from a few places such as the lint trap, exhaust vent, or not actually from the dryer at all, like the washing machine or the water. If the dryer's new, that might be the reason as well. When a new dryer starts up for the first time, it may smell like something is burning, as any oil residue from the packing material heats up. In this case, run the dryer empty for approximately 15 minutes until the odor has dissipated. For other types of odors, this guide will help you identify and fix them.
