If its electric burning smell,its either a overheating motor,capacitor or both or burnt connections,sounds like a motor problem,it will be very hot to touch if its failing,check capacitor though as it could be causing motor to overheat,rating of cap is on side

My Maytag Neptune dryer doesn't stop unless I open the dryer door.


You will be needing to replace the timer assembly, which is the part that has all the wires attached and is found inside the top of the machine. It is what the dial is fastened to.
Be blessed.
