Question about Washing Machines
The washing machine first started making a noise when spinning. Sounded like a garbage disposal. I lifted the lid and started it again. The tub stopped spinning and I could spell a burning smell. Now it won't do anything. And there were fine white shavings all under the washer. Please help! Thanks!
Follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Curdy, it almost sounds like your lid switch is loose or fractured and the lid actuator is not making the switch. Check this out first and post back...Catriver.

You can't tight up the tub. You should replace the damper pads that located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Goog luck !

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.
