UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your burning smell may be coming from your belt or an excess build up of lint in the exaust.
You will need to remove the vent exaust hose and clean it out, and also check the lint filter and discharge that is going to the hose for lint buildup.
Your other problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not turn...
This tip that I wrote will help you to figure out what is happening...

SOURCE: I have lots of lint
Sometimes the problem is with the lint filter itself...
If you use "dryer sheets" they can plug up the holes in the lint filter with a kind of waxy substance and that will impair the air getting thru the filter causing the lint and air to find another way out, not thru the filter but thru the machine.
I would suggest you take the filter out and wash/scrub, lightly it in hot soapy water, let dry, then reinstall the filter.
You should also check the blower /blower tube and the inside of your dryer for lint buildup also, as lint buildup can cause dryer fires.
Hopefully this will solve your problem

SOURCE: The dryer makes an electrical
it could be the motor ,or perhaps the belt is broke but sounds more like the motor since ge uses a belt switch so if the belt were broke it would not even make the buzzing sound.
get some help from someone in the house and set the timer to any cycle,open the door and push in the door switch then have the other person engage the start switch while you rotate the drum if the dryer runs like that but wont start with the door closed and engaging the start switch as normal the start winding is bad on the motor and the motor would need to be replaced and the cost of that is about equal to a new dryer
