Loud noise, then not so loud, but now electrical burning smell and little draining

the smell is your clutch and the lack of draining is a clogged washer drain protector. see these at drain protector is part 541811 and clutch is 2670. go there enter model number and scroll down to the red 100 click it and look for these part numbers.

Loud noise, then not so loud, but now electrical burning smell and little draining

The basket drive and the drive block will need replacing. The nut that holds the basket to the drive block may have come loose causing the drive block to 'jump' over and damage the tabs on the basket drive that causes the thumping as the spin cycle ends. To repair, you will need to purchase a basket drive and drive block. The agitator, balance ring, basket and transmission, will have to be removed in order to replace the basket drive. If less than 3ys old, consider contacting whirlpool for possible warranty concession.

You will need to have it checked by a qualified LG technician to see what is the deal with the burning odor.  And the noise is probably the washer not balanced correctly.
