My whirlpool duet dryer made a funny burning smell
believe if the belt is fine then it is the thermal fuse that is
located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be
replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad
then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine and the belt is also fine, then it
can be due to the motor or the control board that is bad and should be replaced.
Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My dryer is stuck on "Control Lock"
See if you can get into the diagnostic mode. If not, you will need to replace the "user interface" on the machine. Here is a link to the part
if you should need it.
ACTIVATING THE DIAGNOSTIC
1. Make sure that the dryer is in the "Standby"
mode (plugged in and all of the indicators
2. Press the following control panel keypad
sequence all within 5 seconds:
More Time-Less Time-More Time-
3. All indicators on the console should now
be illuminated with "88" showing in
the "Estimated Time Remaining" display,
if this test mode has been entered successfully.
