there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

Make sure that the vents are cleaned to include outside. Where it hook on to the dryer make sure that the housing is cleaned also. That should take care of the problem. Thankyou and if you need more help let us know.

how old is dryer. drive belt may be slipping. Unit may have a faulty control that allows element to superheat. You have a potential fire hazard. What type of clothes are getting the burn marks? Should they be dried in a dryer?

don't open the door until the dryer stops -
the brown streaks are caused by the rear of the dryer
still being very hot. When you open door before cool-down cycle,
the rear of the dryer where the heating element is,
is what scorches your clothes.
