Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer heats but drum will not turn

My dryer (model 110.8508) is about 5 years old. A couple of days ago, it didn't have any power so I flipped the circuit breaker and it started working. I've been using it the last couple of days and used it yesterday morning. Last night when I put a load in to dry, it didn't work. The control panel is on, but when I select the settings, and press start, it doesn't do anything. I flipped the breaker and that didn't help. I tried turning it on again and it didn't start. I left the room for several minutes and when I returned, there was a burning odor in the laundry room and the inside of the dryer was hot. It seems as if everything is working except for the drum. Any ideas?
