Don't know enough from your description. Does the pump hum, or empty the washer? There's a strainer under the lower washer arm that may be plugged. If the pump doesn't engage at all, my first thought would be the timer portion of the control board. I'd guess the control board would run about $125 or so.
One of these was in my house when I moved in, still have the manual. Very efficient dishwasher. A is a prewash (machine will stop after it). Manual says it's meant to rinse stuff while you wait until you've filled the machine to run a full wash. D is economy wash. Water is heated according to the switch you select on the front. C is a prewash that will continue on to D (normal cycle). Water is at incoming temp. B is another prewash that will continue on the C etc (heavy cycle). Like C, water is at incoming temp. E is dry cycle. Heating element is on/off depending on switch on the front (dunno why you'd turn it off..) While turning the dial, push it in and it will stop exactly at the start of theach cycle. Mine has stopped emptying, think the pump has died, looking for a replacement..
the thermostats need replacing thers 3 of them you can get to them from the front its better to take the door skin off first so you can see better then take the lower panel off.the thermostats are on the right hand side underneath.
Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.
