If motor is sounding quieter than normal more than likely the belt has broken.

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.

check the belt to see if it is broken. check the drive motor to see if it is working.

You are referring to the rear drum bearing that has worn away..
It means replacing the rear bearing and drum shaft.
It comes in a repair kit which you can obtain from Hotpoint.
It comes complete with fitting instructions.
Go the Hotpoint web site, and you should be able to order the parts on line.
In the menu click on>>>>Spare parts and accessories, and follow instructions.
Please ratemy solution.
