there are several things that need to be seen.

SOURCE: Smells like it's burning and smoke coming out of chimney vent

Get the filter housing out of the machine and wash it out. Blow out the blowers housing. Change the control thermostat.It mounts right next to the fuse on the back:

SOURCE: LOUD NOISE AND BURNING SMELL

How old is this dryer? If it is older that 15 years get a new one. You don't want to deal with the headaches. The motor may be going bad on it and the wiring could be melting. I assume it is not working now. Have him check the breakers. Make sure the connections are o.k. in the back. Clean out the lint piping and look for lint underneath it as well.

Asko t701 dryer burning smell


Loud noise is not a good description. What does it sound like? The dryer has a belt that turns the drum, the belt can wear and slip, there is a also a tensioner pulley on the belt system and then there is the motor that turns the drum. The smell could be from the belt, however you should know that dryers are not maintenance free and you have to clean them at least annually because they can build up lint in the cabinet and that lint can get into the heating element and it can start a fire.

Can you buy a frigidaire stackable washer separately?


Have you had a qualified service man look at your machine? I would think that the burned rubber smell would direct you to examine the belt (found in the very bottom after removal of front cover).
If it is the belt it is a very easy fix on this machine. The not draining part wouldn't be related to the belt the pump that does the draining is driven by its own electric motor and is easily visible when the front cover is off. Its located on the bottom left side. If a sock or other small item manages to get over the side of the basket it always ends up jamming the pump.
You would have to take the pump apart to retrieve the item and restore pump function
Good Luck

My hotpoint tdl34 electric dryer is working but not getting hot


heating element has blown. did you hear a loud pop at one time or a burning smell? If so this is the problem. You can find instruction and order the part you need on ebay to change the element. It is easier than you think.

Screeching noise and burn smell how do I open dryer to repair


Pull it out from the wall, unplug it and remove the back panel by removing the screws. The problem is most likely the belt around the drum which is either worn out or out of alignment. Take a look at it and decide if you can just straighten it on the drum or if you will need to buy a new belt.
