Question about Washing Machines
Started the washer,it filled with water I put the clothes in and came back a couple minutes later to smell what smelled like a candle burning,so I stopped it.I tryed to start it again and got nothing so I let it sit a few minutes.Then I switched it to spin to try to get the water out,and it just made a humming sound like the motor was stuck and did nothing. I spun the aggitator and it spun freely.I then bailed out the water and tried starting it again.It did start filling with water but still wouldnt spin the water out.

Most likely the transmission on the motor has seized and will need to be repaired. Look under the washer, if there is black grease on the floor then its time to replace the motor and/or the transmission. If you have seen smoke then its probably the case.

Sounds like either the water level sensor (called a pressure switch ) is malfunctioning or there is a mechanical problem with the switch meaning that the tube that goes from the switch is
a) Kinked or crushed
b) has a small hole
c) Has become clogged
d) Air dome (where tube goes to on outer tub) is clogged

If it is draining the water then the motor is running. ou most likely have a broken motor coupler between the motor and gearcase.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back with the complete model number from the washer if you need further help.

First thing is to remove the 2 screws from the console, they may be hidden in the front or bacl of console. After removing screws, lightly push the base of the console towards the front of the washer and pick up. This will expose your lid switch connection. Using a jumper wire, jump out the black and white wires then try advancing your washer into spin/drain. The culprit will usually be the lid switch assy.
