Sounds like you have a bad drive motor.All the symptoms point to this, intermittent no start ,noisey when it does run, and most of all burning smell,what you are smelling is the covering they use to protect the windings of the motor, this could be a potential fire hazard I would get this repaired soon or if the unit is old enough to justify replace it

Dyer was grinding, then won't run


Sounds to me like you motor has froze up. Is there any smell coming from the dryer? The fuse would not cause this. A fuse would make the dryer do nothing when you hit the start button.
