SOURCE: Overheating/burnt rubber smell

classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer wont start

Check the door switch actuator (the piece sticking down that the door actuates when closing . Could have broken off . If there , and you hear a click , then thermal fus (white piece with 2 wires attached ) could be problem . Disconnect power and put the 2 wires togather. Reconnect power and see if dryer starts . I have never had to replace a push-to-start switch .

Yes Thrmostat is bad "stuck" closed circuit will not open to stay at safe temperature. This can be dangerous. I never run my own machine at home unattended or while asleep. For fear something like this could happen and cause a fire had a recent problem with a Whirlpool. Replaced it after finding the "correct" one. I would bring the bad one with you when you go and get a new one.
Please leave a good feedback for me on here.
