i put my dads clothes in the dryer so i could wash mine and there is smoke or steam coming out the not completely sure witch on but i think its steam. but anyways i got scared and turned it off because the laundry room is in the basement and my dads room is downstairs next to the basement and i don't want him to catch on fire lol but is it OK to turn it back on?
