Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.

has the belt shredded and wrapped itself around the shaft? try to manually rotate the drum to see if the belt is free and the motor shaft moves. it sounds like the motor is stuck and the smell is the uncirculated heat at the back. let me know your results.
taking the lid off will gain access.

If all the componants are good, you are loosing voltage somewhere. Check the voltage to the dryer. If you do not have 220 volts then you have a blown fuse or a kicked breaker in your fuse box. This would allow only 110 volts to get to the dryer and the dryer would run and not heat. If you have the correct voltage to the dryer check the connections on the terminal block and the wires to the block. Before going any further than that I would really rather have your model so I could guide you correctly. Good luck and I really hope this will FixYa.

unplug the dryer,
220v is not fun
dryers are generic inside, regardless of maker
while you got it apart to replace the belt is a good time to clean out exhaust vent pipes and the squirrel cage fan, no lint, better air flow, less $$ to run
the tensioner may push Up on the lower run.
plug in mains
takes longer to type than to do
