SOURCE: GE washing machine, wont spin
Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.

there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!
when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.
on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly
Hope this helps

Unless the appliance is shutting down IMMEDIATELY after starting the drain part of the cycle, I don't think that you need a new pump.
If the pump turning on results in immediate shut down, then it is probably a short in wiring to pump. If the washer is failing after a while that the pump is on, then it can be the fan attached to (and part of) drain pump, present in F&P model, the timer board, or some other fault (eg. Balance sheet).
Other thing you can do is a diagnostic.There should be a tech sheet held in a plastic envelope tucked inside the control panel showing how to do the diagnostic.
Here general instructions to start Diagnostic Mode:
Turn off the power using control panel.
Press and hold the wash temperature down and then press the power button.
The machine will beep twice.
Browse diagnostic menu using the spin speed up or the spin speed down buttons.
If the machine does not enter diagnostic mode, then the control board may have a problem. The control board is expensive and fails rarely, before replacing the electronic control, any other part that may be responsible for the problem must be tested, including Power Control and Pressure Sensing Module and balance sensor.
In your case, probably is likely the pump, not the control board. The pump is tested by jumping its contacts and energizing it directly. If it fails after a while, then it must be replaced. For safety reasons the test must be done by a technician.
Pump is part 426956P, and costs about $60. Here the part.
Here the full disassembly in the part manual. Pump is part 18 in diag shown at page 16:
