Question about Whirlpool LSQ8243H
I have a Whirlpool LSQ8243JQ0 that stopped working in the middle of the rinse cycle. We hand to manually bail out the water. If I move the dial to start over nothing happens. My wife said that when it happened she smelled smoke and now all I hear is a humming sound coming from it when I try to start a new cycle. I'm no expert but I'm guessing it's either the motor or the pump. Is this something that a patient and somewhat technical person can troubleshoot (with your help) and fix myself?
My father had the same problem with same model about a year ago and it was the switch. If the machine continues to run up to the point of the spin cycle obviously the motor works and so he fixed the switch/timer that changes the cycle. In expensive but use a manual to guide you in reaching the switch and you will be able to manually turn the switch by hand observing that the spin cycle once reached times out or short circuits.

You are right, it is either the pump or the motor, yes this is something that you can do yourself. Best thing to do is remove the back cover. Look inside the machine and have your wife turn it on. Keep your hands clear from all electrical and anything that looks likes it moves. See if you can see if the belt is attached or slipping and from there we can diagnose more together
