SOURCE: Burning smell and smoke
I ran into a scenario similar to this at work. With the burning smell and smoke combined, it leaves only one problem remaining; the motor. The motor and the pulley that enables the belt to spin could be malfunctioning (causing friction between the 2 parts) and thus causes the burning smell and the smoke. I'd highly advise not to touch either part after having the unit on (YOU WILL BURN YOURSELF).
The only other likely possibility is to make sure there aren't any hairs caught in or around the motor and the bearings of the agitator.

Yes the first thing that I would do is to change the belt...run it for a few seconds and then check the belt... if it is hot then you have found your problem...if it is cool then you need to keep looking...
