Question about Maytag Dryers
It got really hot and smelled like something burning before it had sparks and quit
Probably the heating element had a hot spot in the coil of the element and it either sagged from heat and touched the case of the dryer and arced which threw sparks or it just separated with the same results

Your drive belt may have broken if it smelled like rubber burning. If that is the case then your motor bearing are worn out or something has been lodged between your dryer drum and the dryer housing. If the smell was the odor of burning plastic, then your motor is probably burned up.

Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?
Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.

This is usually a result of a stalling idler pulley or drum, causing a burned spot on the drum drive belt.
The situation will only worsen. The belt is best replaced before it breaks.
Items to pay attention to, when the drum drive belt is replaced, are:
(1) Clean and lube the idler pulley and drum roller shafts.
(2) Confirm that the drum glides will yield additional service life.
(3) Check motor condition and de-lint the blower housing and blower intake pathways.
