SOURCE: dryer burning smell
Is the fan running....with strong airflow out of the vent pipe? Is the smell coming from the vent pipe? If the vent pipe goes outdoors...is the smell coming from the control panel at the top??
ODOR FROM VENT:
If the fan is not running, or the air is somehow blocked, then the odor is probably caused by excessive heat around the heating element. A seriously overheating element should eventually cause a thermal overload protector to "trip" and shut off the power.
If the airflow is strong, the air intake may have drawn in paper, dust, lint, or something that is near or stuck on the heating element.
ODOR FROM CONTROL PANEL:
A relay, temperature control, timer module, or other part may be burning out. The defective part could possibly be found by "sniffing" the parts in the control panel to find the source of the smell...with the power unplugged!!...otherwise, this may require testing by someone familiar with appliance repairs.

you can unplug the unit , and reomve the lower aces panel (3 screws along the front bottom of unit) youll probalby see an excess of lint built up in which case you can vacuum it out, and then check/clean and or replace your dryer vent

SOURCE: Overheating/burnt rubber smell
classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.
