The rubber smell is the belt from the motor to the tub. The grinding sound is/was the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight. The bearing on the pulley probably went out and now the belt is burning because of the friction of sliding around the pulley. The belt and the pulley need to be replaced. If you have the room, turn off and disconnect the hoses. Unplug the electrical cord from the wall outlet. Remove the drain hose and any water in the tub. Carefully tip the washer over backwards, DO DROP IT!!! Now you should be able to see the motor, tub, tension pulley, and belt. With a basic 3/8' drive socket set, probably metric, and a couple of screw drivers you should be able to remove the belt and the pulley. Take the belt, pulley, and model numbers to an applicance parts store and buy replacements.
I only suggest this because I hate paying labor. If you are not machanically inclined then you are going to have to pay the labor.

i would 1st look to make sure the drain hose is not loose or broken. be sure it is staying in the drain pipe in the wall.it could be a cracked housing on your pump. hope this helps

This can happen when the rubber pipe that connects between the electric tap and the washing tank got disconnected .
Usually it happens after washing fully load machine with towel, blankets etc.
Open the back of the machine and check the rubber pipe, if loose or out of position get it back in to place and tight the metal bands that hold it .

sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...

A few possibilities here.
Make sure the washer is level, both back to front, and side to side.
Do not over load, and make sure that there is more than 1 article in it, otherwise you will get an out of balance load.
Make sure the water is drainlng away properly.
Check the drum for excess movement, this would indicate a broken spring or worn drum bearings or worn or broken drum shaft.
Check the concrete wieghts at the top and bottom are not loose or broken.
Check the suspensions for excessive wear.
Hope this helps

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.
Waht are your DIY skills? Do you want to try the repair/fix?.............Rich
