You most likelyhave burned a drive belt. Could be a couple things. If the machine was loaded to the max and a bit more, it is possible that a small article of clothes may have been flung into the outer tub and into the pump... this can freeze it up and the motor will keep trying to turn the belt against a frozen pulley.
You'll need to open the machine and check the pump for blockage and change the belt... let us know if we can help with procedures..

I am going through this right now and best I can tell..needs a new belt. Pop the front off of your washer (UNPLUG IT FIRST:)) and see if there are black shavings on the bottom. The appliance place where we usaully order our parts from do not carry this belt in stock so it will have to be ordered. Price from them was $19.00+ tax

It is very likely you need to replace the motor brushes. These are the electrical conections in the motor that wear after a time. They are fairly cheap, uses-replaceable, and available from online appliance specialists.
Turn off water and unplug before removing top/ back pannel to access motor. ***** CHECK MOTOR TYPE BEFORE ORDERING PARTS ******
