Question about Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric Dryer
I have a hotpoint dryer
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt has slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn and produce a burning rubber smell.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps

Sound like either your belt or your bearings. Either way, I wouldn't run it anymore until I got a professional appliance repair guy out to check it. We wouldn't want your house to burn down. Very dangerous!! I would also unplug it until then as well. Good luck and stay safe!

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.
