Question about Washing Machines
You have a direct short in the wiring, if you open up the outer case and make sure its unplugged it should be very easy to visibly spot the burned wires or offending part. Most all of these parts can be had either locally or online and are usually straightforward to replace.

If the washer doesn’t operate or make any noise when set on any cycle, or if it stops suddenly when it should continue onto the next cycle, it may not be receiving electrical power, or, if the motor stopped mid-cycle, the machine’s overload protector may have tripped. In this case, take out some of the articles to reduce the load and let the protector reset itself. Then restart the machine. Otherwise:
1) Be sure the machine is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it’s plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be sure the washer lid is closed completely.
2) If the receptacle seems dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.
3) Unplug the washer, and check the power cord. If necessary, replace the cord.
4) Open the lid and check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that it pushes against. Press and release the switch. If it doesn’t click when you do this, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call a repairperson.
5) If the washer still doesn’t work, the controls may be faulty. Call a service person.
Thanks for your question
