If u have a burning smell, I'd check the belt and belt pulley. There is a switch at the pulley arm...if the belt hasn't pulled the pulley tight the switch won't make and motor won't run.

SOURCE: Drums tries to turn but fails.

usually there is a board on the side of the wall of the machine. Check carefully for dry or burned tracks on the board. they either use a relay or possibly a triac etc, Current is fairly high and any bad soldering can create a dry joint. Look for any loose connections leading from the motor to the board. Check the tachometer which normally connects at the bottom end of the motor.Sometimes the magnet comes loose and gives an incorrect signal to the controller. let me know.

SOURCE: Hoover AM120 - Have replaced motor brushes - drum

I would recommend that you consider replacing the washer, as it certainly sounds like a faulty programme control, and they are expensive
The motor itself must be o/k, otherwise it would not function at all

Good bet it's the motor!
Disconnect electric plug.
Have to get access to back of the dryer, remove a few screws.
Look at motor and belt, motors sometimes over heat - Burn Up.
Motor could be replaced, depending on the age and how long you have had it!

Kenmore 70 dryer smells burnt


There could be dust settled on the motor inside from the few years in storage. Unplug and remove back, with a hoover brush **** off all dust but do this lightly as to not disturb any connections.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer


Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

Electrical Burning Smell from Henry HVR200 Vacuum Cleaner


Hi! Highly unlikely that you need a new motor.  Highly likely that you need new carbon brushes.  The smell is caused by excessive sparking between the worn brushes and the copper commutator segments.  Most carbon brushes (and from memory I suspect this includes Henry's) have a copper wire buried in their last few millimeters, and you really need to change them before that becomes exposed.   The longer you run it like this, the more likely you are to damage the commutator, so change them sooner rather than later.  When you change the brushes, you can smooth off the commutator with very fine abrasive paper (the objective is to smooth it, not scratch it!), and then blow all the dust away (or **** it away if you have another vac, of course).  Incidentally, you don't say if you are using a paper bag in your Henry. Some people, because the top-hat filter is so good, try to manage without a bag.  This is false economy!  You should always use a bag. I hope this helps! I value feedback, so please remember to rate this response.
