Check tub bearings and/or rollers or for anything that could impede the turning of the tub. Sounds like something is stopping the tub enough
to make the drive motor turn on the belt causing it to burn and smell.
If you fix the problem with the tub be sure and change the belt

NO DRUM ACTION ON MY TDC30 BUT DO GET HEAT


When you start the dryer does it sound as if it is running but it does not tumble? Or does it make a humming noise?

If it sounds like it's running I'd check the belt first,
Humming noise and burning smell Dan indicate a bad motor or something stuck in blower wheel.

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.

Kenmore model 110 dryer won't start. Hums a bit, then nothing. Starting to get a slight burning smell too. How to remove the top console to get to the push to start switch?


From what you described it sounds like your drum is seised, try turning it by hand. If it is seised than you will have to check to see if you burnt your motor. Good Luck

Drum does not turn.- hums, then electricity kicks off. - slight burning smell I have not had a problem with element


Sounds to me like your motor has shorted and is throwing the circuit breaker. I would first check the connections and then get down inside your dryer and remove the belt so the motor has a free ability to turn and try to spin the pulley by hand. If it has some hang ups then the motor is bad. A burnt smell coming from it would also indicate this. Make sure to unplug the dryer before doing any inspecting or replacing of parts.

Making buzzing sound and not turning. then the buzzing sound stops and it smells like something is burning. then u will hear a clicking noise and sound will stop all together and nothing will happen unless...


Hi,
The motor on your dryer has gone bad. The humming is the motor trying to start and the smell is the motor getting hot because it is not starting.
You need to replace the motor.

I have the same problem!


don't do that anymore! If you're lucky, there is just something caught in the vent fan, if not you will probably need a new motor.

Dryer stopped working after working w/door open or closed


Sounds as if the door switch/latch had stuck.the smell was probably a small short. try unplugging unit. But I would imagine you need door latch/switch replaced
