The problem could be a list of things . Let's start checking the belt , it coul be that the belt is broken or something is keeping it from doing its job ( a piece of clothing coul be stuck) due to the burned rubber smell you detected. It coul also be the electrical door switch and After checking the three first steps then comes the motor part lets hope is not . Good luck
It sounds to me like the motor is not turning, but the heating element is coming on. with no air flowing over the element, it is getting too hot. Can you operate the start switch with the top tilted up so you can see if the motor is turning but the drum is not, and just where the buzzing is coming from. Also, I would try the dryer on manual setting and on air dry to see if any setting works. Good luck
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 repairclinic.com 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.
99% of the time , a buzzing motor means the motor is almost burned up. Especially when you can smell it. A burnt motor calls for more current due to the laws of electricity and this overheats the motor windings and this is what you smell. If you are lucky, one other thing can cause a motor to buzz. Something is binding somewhere and the motor is not strong enough to turn the shaft. You would smell this also, but if you can find what is binding it and remove it, then you should be ok if you have not used it too much with it smelling. Look for a sock or wash rag tangled inside the dryer between the drum and the inner walls. This extra "drag" would cause the symptoms you are seeing, but something tells me that you have a burned up motor.
