Safety is important so always check and clean the lint filters. More fires are caused by this in the laundry than anything else. If you wondered what that burning smell is, then its the liont filter.
If the dryer will not start then check that the front door switch is activating, its a very common problem. If the unit will not start if that is okay, and the power is on, then a perhaps the timer switch is faulty
Always listen for loud and unusual noises when the dryer is running. Some noises sound absolutely dreadful. Sometimes the screeching and metal on metal sounds are due to debris left in pockets such as screws, or coins left in pockets rolling around in the drum, and sometimes even metal buttons make a worrying scratching noise on the drum.
More serious signs of impending dryer failure come from the drum bearings, the fans or blowers, the drum rollers and the idler pulleys. This is when you need dryer repair help from someone professional.
That burning smell is either lint or drive belts failing, so check these out. Keep lint filters clean as you do not want a fire.
