Shut down and unplug machine a.s.a.p.! It could be your door latch wax motor failing which will burn the R11 (resistor) and Q6 (triac) on the machine control board. You did not mention which Neptune you had... If it is a MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker and you have not replaced the door latch wax motor (12002535) then your time is up. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for details for the repair kit or you can purchase a new control board and 12002535 wax motor and be up running quickly before the clothes pile get too high.
It could be the seal and/or bearings if the machine is starting to get loud in the high speed spin cycle. If so, See www.neptunebearing.com for the seal and bearing kit plus they offer a special Neptune bearing tool for rent called the tony tool. A Maytag technician will want to charge you $900 to replace the whole outer tub? Why replace it when just the bearings and seal kit need changed?

SOURCE: Maytag Washer Stopped Working
I was about to order a new lid switch assembly, but I decided to try one more thing. I disconnected the wires from the check switch and cleaned the connections - there was a layer of oxidation. The machine started right up after I reconnected the wires and plugged it back in.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
See the section on the Machine Base.
There are a number of balance springs and vibration pads that help keep the tub from vibrating and going out of balance.
It's possible that one or more of these is broken, loose or damaged.
Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet to get access to them.
Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for their direct drive washers.
For the vibration, I'd check the springs and vibration pads.
While you have the cabinet off, I'd pull the pump and motor and check the Motor Coupler. This could be the cause of the "burning smell"
