Not turning

Un plug the dryer and take the top off via the screws at the back.
Is the belt still round the drum?
If not belt needs replacing and the drum needs checking

If the belt is still in tact, then the capacitor may need replacing.which helps to start the drum. to test this replace the top and turn the dryer on is there a hum?
You will need an approved engineer to carry out more tests or repair

Amana dryer Model leb107w2

It sounds like it needs a new belt. The smell is probably the rubber belt overheating because it's slipping. The belt tensioner may need adjusting or replacing as well.

Replace dryer belt

Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt.
Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.
