This sounds like the rubbing strips at the front of the dryer are badly worn and/or the rear bearing is worn. From your description - the drum is sticking - causing the motor to slip on the belt - causing the burning smell.
Replace worn parts including the drive belt.

The mower vibrates a lot


Either the blade is badly out of balance/bent or it has hit something hard enough to bend the crankshaft which I have seen happen quite a few times. It could also have sheared the flywheel key causing the engine to be out of time but usually when that happens they won't even start and run.

My washer vibrates so much it actually moves the appliance. Yes, it is level. I also took the clothes out of the washer and tried the spin cycle with out clothes in it and it still vibrates.


If you call LG they actually have some rubber pads to go under the unit to stop it from sliding and it also helps with the vibrations. Part number is 4620ER4002B.
I know of people who have also gotten a thick rubber mat, stal mat, and put it under the unit. They claim that it works wonderfully.
