The washing machine will do this if the load is unbalanced. Usually due to either an excessively heavy and/or large load. The burning rubber smell is just the drive belt dealing with the imbalance. Often the washing machine will self-balance itself, but it's a good idea to open the lid and re-distribute the load. Or remove some stuff if it seems too heavy.

Washing machine making loud rattling noises and smells of burning rubber


Your washing machine has a belt on a pulley and that belt is being stretched. That belt is attached to a motor that turns your laundry tub. Your washer if out of balance will shake and rattle and the tub might be locked in place and the motor is forcing the belt to turn but the tub is not turning. If you are not mechanically inclined call a washer service repair man.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Frigidare top loading washer 6 cycle - 10 years old


you may want to inspect the bottom part and see if it still uses fan belt. it could be that the belt is loose and the motor is spinning but can not drive the transmission. so the rubber burning smell is coming from the slipping belt.

the solution is to tighten the belt or replace it if necessary.

Washer won't spin anymore


Was it getting loud in spin prior to this?
If so, based on past experience with this model, I would say you need at least a triple lip seal, belt and possibly a transmission.
