Anthony F. :

Are you sure its not coming from the Washer?

JACUSTOMER-yi8jb323- :

It is definitely not coming from the washer.

Anthony F. :

There is very little in a dryer that could cause this There is no grease its more likely burned lint and the machine would have to be taken apart and cleaned

Anthony F. :

check the drum seals to make sure they are not loose allowing lint to escape into the dryer and bypassing the filter

Anthony F. :

if there is lint in the heater it will burn makeing black soot

Anthony F. :

this could be what you are seeing

Anthony F. :

without seeing it first hand there is no way to know
