SOURCE: Maytag Washer will not spin
Pull the unit forwardand lean it back about 45 degrees. You'll have to play with it a bit, but once it's far enough out, it will lean back without you having to hold it. Remove and inspect the belt(s) are they in good condition? Next, check the pulleys (wheels) underneath. Do they turn? One is for your pump, one is for your transmission and one is for the motor. (in case one doesn't turn, you'll know what portion needs to be worked on). Also check the track on your pulley the belt sits in. Is it dammaged or worn?

SOURCE: Front load washer doesn't spin
My Maytag® Neptune® washer filled with water, but it won't spin or drain-what now?
Start by making sure the machine is plugged into a live (working) electrical outlet. Then check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if necessary (or check the fuse if you have a fuse box).
Next, inspect the drain hoses and remove any kinks. Take a look at the drain, too - if it's clogged, call your usual drain service person.
Then close the washer door and firmly press the START/STOP button. In a few moments, after the door locks, the washer should begin to spin. (For your safety, the washer will not tumble or spin unless the door is closed and locked.)
If this doesn't work, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900 for toll-free assistance and service scheduling if necessary.

Burning smell could be the windings in the motor. Better not to use it and have it looked at. If the smell is a rubber smell then the belt is jammed while the motor spins. still needs intervention as it can catch on fire and you will have a bigger problem than the one you have now
