i have found that when people start smelling things in the dryer it's from chemicals from like paint or varnish,all the dryer does is move air when it gets hot you start smelling it.you can pull it apart and check the belt and rollers but your dryer has the lint filter on top and there isn't anything in there that could really make it smell,on some of these dryers the belt pulley doesn't have a wheel on it,the pulley is just a piece of metal with no moving parts and the belt rubs on the pulley but i've never smelt anything from that,like i say usually it's from having your floors done over the smell from the polyurethane coating or from paint can make the dryer smell.go here to take dryer apart http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGIG8Wo5-N4
hope this helps
Hello, Most likely the burnt rubber smell is that of the dryer belt trying to spin the dryer or the rubber rollers themselves on the tub of the dryer. These are the only rubber parts in a dryer and most of the time it is due to the belt needing to be replaced and having a worn area on the belt itself which then sometimes manages to become stuck on either the pulley or the pulley that is on the motor itself causing it to start to burn into the rubber. You would need to take apart the cabinet of the dryer and observe the dryer belt and if needed replace the belt on the unit. If you are in need of a diagram or step by step instructions please message me back your complete model number and I will locate your diagram and provide instructions on how to repair this issue your unit is having. I await your reply if you have any further questions as well.

Either belt is no good or the motor is going bad...
There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going
Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your
dryer will not run...
Check the dryer power cord for any signs of melting or charring. It could just be a loose connection. Then.....
Check the wall plug - there's a possibility the wall socket is either worn or the wiring to the socket isn't tight. The socket will need to be removed to check this, so make sure the power is off first.
I also have this problem, but it is after the dryer has been running. When the motor is hot, it buzzes and will not run. Sometimes it will run if I turn the drum or take some clothes out. I disassembled the dryer and cleaned the motor of lint. This helped but not completely solved the issue. I have completely removed the motor and will thoroughly clean the motor (stator and brushes) and will try again.
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 :)
