The smell was your belt burning into. (If it smelled like rubber) Take the bottom of your back panel off and you will see your belt just hanging in there. Cost $15 to replace and eazzzy to do.

There's a slight burning smell coming from the dryer drum.

Some item may have gotten between the drum that rotates and the housing and during the rolling of the drum this item may be heating up from the friction. Check closely to see if you can find anything rubbing on the drum.

The dryer makes a lound noise like grinding and smells like something hot or burning. I see no smoke and it started ok after a couple of turns or so the first time but the second time was when I smelled...

my daughter had a maytag dryer doing the same thing. I took it apart and the bracket that holds the drum broke off. it is cheaply made. what happens it that this causes the drum not to spin freely and causes a lot of resistence on the motor. the motor will get over worked and also the belt will slip causing smell and heat. my daughter ran hers for a while it was doing this and it also messed up the motor. we just bought a new dryer. all these parts are available, but it might be cheaper in the long run to get another one.

Dryer won't start

Good day,
Sounds like the motor is trying to start but can't. If the drum turns freely then the motor is likely shot.
If the drum is locked, then disassembling the machine and find out why. Frankly once the windings are burnt, beside anything else that could be wrong, the motor is unlikely serviceable.

Thank you for using FixYa

Horrible noise and burning smell when dryer is on

Same thing happened to us, the noise is one of your wheel bearings are going bad, (they are just a small piece of plastic rollers) and the smell is your belt. The dryer is dismantled from the front. I figured out how to take my dryer apart from google. Also, you may need some help to pull out the drum wheel and pay attention to how it came out. I ordered parts from and it was very inexpensive and the parts took 3 days to come to me ( I wouldn't pay for faster shipping).
Good luck, you won't believe how uncomplex your dryer really is.

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed

Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...

It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.
