Question about Dryers
If you don't empty the lint trap every time you dry clothes, it builds up, falls out and ends up right in front of the blower on the motor. Eventually stopping the flow of air out the vent hose. Suggestion: Unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. Remove the lint trap from the top of the dryer and remove the two screws at the opening.
In the back, you'll see a large duct that goes from where you removed the two screws in the top, down to the bottom in front of the motor. It's held in place by four screws. Remove the screws and pull the duct out of the dryer. More than likely, it's going to be full of lint and no telling what else.
If you have the means, blow any lint you see, out of the dryer housing and off he motor before reinstalling that duct. his should stop the burning smell. If it doesn't, Please, call a pro and have it checked out. Dryer fires are more common than people think.
Best of luck to you. I hope I helped some.

At the very least, it could be that lint has collected in the vent hose.
There have been cases where lint has bypassed the lint trap and gone places that it shouldn't be.
Worst case scenario is that your dryer motor is checking out.
I'd have a pro look at this if there is no lint in the vent hose.
