Stop using the machine unless you have checked the pump and make sure it is not leaking. The leak is likely coming from the pump and it may result it to short out as may be indicated by the burning smell and its failure to pump out water. Short circuit in the pump will eventually lead to a much much bigger problem which is the burning out of the motor controller module.

Drain water manually by gravity into a bucket or shallow basin but enough to hold the water from the machine. Once completely drained, lay the machine on its front on a cushioned floor to access and check the pump. Replace the pump if leaking or if there's any sign of electrical failure.

If you have checked all of these then the only other explanation is that the pump motor is faulty and needs replacing or there is a fault with the wiring or Programmer.

SOURCE: while the machine was spinning

There is a switch under the rim which the lid actuates -- when the lid is up the switch is opened to prevent the machine from spinning -- there is a "post" on the lid which pushes this switch when the lid closes -- sounds like this lid switch is malfunctioning -- perhaps loose, or broken, or maybe burned contacts -- more info, let me know.

My samsung top loader will only drain

Very easy repair. By dropping the hose gravity takes over allowing the water to run out. The buzzing noise is the propeller on your pump jammed.(Brawires,coins,hairpins) < common causes.. STEP 1:Drop hose down to remove water from machine STEP 2:Lean machine forward on a 45,rest machine on a chair. STEP 3:Bottom left of machine is a round black cap,remove the cap(turn anti clockwise) STEP 4: Put your fingers in the pump and pull out the coins,hairpins etc from pump. STEP 5:Turn propeller to make sure it turns freely,put the round cap back on then your done. Thanks

Your machine won't spin because it can't drain.
You probably have a blocked drain hose or a faulty/blocked pump.
If you put the drain hose below the water level in the machine it may run by gravity. If it does flow this way it would show that the hose is not blocked (completely).
Make sure the machine is empty before continuing.
NOTE! Unplug machine from power supply!!
There is probably a small cover near where the drain comes out of the machine. Unscrew this cover and you will expose the pump filter, which may be (partially) blocked. Check for coins or similar which may be jamming the impeller blades..
NOTE! Any water in the machine will flow from here!!
TIP! Lean the machine forward to help contain the last of the water in the tub.
If the drain hose is clear and the pump is still not draining the machine you may have a failed pump motor.
Pump motor replacement is not a big job for an experienced tech.
Good luck....Nomess

Lgwm2032hw does not drain once tub gets full. how

The first thing to do is to empty the washer by allowing the water to flow out of the drain hose by gravity...If it won't flow you have a blockage and you'll have to check the pump filter which is accessed via the small door at floor level (or behind the kick plate) Unscrew the pump cover and check the filter..Water can and will flow out if you haven't emptied the washer. There may be a small hose which next to pump cover which allows controlled draining....Good luck....Nomess

could be your pump has stopped working, or a blockage first check that your stanpipe is clear, get a bucket and put outlet hose end in if it drains into bucket then it is a plumbing problem not the machine.

Washer does spin and it makes a weird noise

Not familiar with model but must cases its the drain pump blocked. water needs lowered before spin cycle works. Lay drain hose out the door to empty. Drain pump is down bottom beside where this hose comes out. Undo the filter bung there and clean out

Front load waher will not drain

Hi, your washer water pump, could be burnt out, or clogged up, but first check drain hose for kink, remove back of machine, locate water pump, device that your drain hose are connected to, remove all hoses, pump from washer, and clean, sometimes foreign objects get into it, and prevent pump impeller from spinning, also check water pump winding (coil) with ohm tester, place tester lead, one on each terminal on pump (motor) if you hear beep sound, pump motor o/k, if not, pump burnt out, replace it, but first remove pump, and clean it. after cleaning replace pump, try machine. you could put drain hose, close to floor, into buck, and water will empty by gravity, if water is not emptying, that's evidence your water pump is block, small object (handkerchief, coins etc.) gets into them, from time to time, first clean your water pump, `and check for kink, in drain hoses. . always disconnect power, before attempting any repairs. good luck.
