Without a proper model number I would say you need to check the drive belt. Is the drum turning? It could also be a heater control problem. Best off to call a reliable repair company such as Sears.

GE DPXH46GA6CC gas dryer makes large humming noise in heat cycles and burning smell


Two things are likely going on here,1- something is dragging down your motor check for a twist in the belt, idler pulley bad, belt installed wrong or wrong belt. Also check your front drum felt and glides if the felt is bunched up that will drag down the motor. Now the smell you probably have some felt or lint in the burner clean it carefully you do not want to damage your igniter.

I have a Kenmore Elite model 110.63022100. My dryer runs for 30 seconds to 1 minute before completely powering off. There is a burn smell when it stops.


Usually when an electric dryer overheats and shuts down, it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat.

When the dryer is hot and you open the door it smells like rubber burning


Your dryer is getting to hot due to the cycling thermostat being bad. Also check you vent for clogs. If you don't replace the cycling thermostat your thermal fuse will end up going bad. Then your dryer will stop heating. You will find the cycling thermostat on the element shoot. It's round, has two screws and two wires going to it.

Dryer stopped- not fuse


are you sure you have power to unit? first check for 240volts @dryer receptacle,then you could have either power wires or the neutral wire inside dryer burned off or broken, if it has an electronic control panel there is an electronic protection fuse to protect controls from surges

EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times


Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.
