If you want to take the time, I just replaced my drum bearings and seal for $62.00. No really any special tools needed. My model showed the bearings were not sold seperately and you had to buy the complete tub half, but when you take it apart, you can knock out the bearings and buy them online or at a bearing house. I have a seal part number also.
If I remember right the bearing part numbers are 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS (1 each) and the seal is a 40mmX80mmX10mm thick. Make sure you get the -2RS bearings because they are sealed. The ones that came out of mine are shielded bearings ( -Z ) and they will not resist moisture if the seal shaft seal fails.
Most AutoZones have seal and bearing drivers you can "borrow". They really help during installation so you don't deform the seal or damage the new bearings.
Any good bearing house should be able to macth on up or if you post back I can give you the exact number. I think most brands of front washer use the same bearings, but you may want to take yours apart before you buy.
Worst case the junk yard doesn't care if it comes in pieces or as one piece. Give it a try.
Not sure you will want to get this involved, but its not really too bad of a job.

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

Thanks for using FixYa. The smell might be due to burning of lid switch. If the washer isn't spinning then it might be dueto a Lid switch or due to a bad motor coupler. You can check for the lid switch& replace it--
First unplug the washing machine. Then remove the two screws that hold the top consolein place; these are located in back of the main console (where the dials are).Once removed, the entire console swivels back, exposing the wiresunderneath.
After this unplug the wiring harness that is connected to the washing machinetop flat surface. Now remove the two s-shaped brackets with a screwdriver byprying underneath. This will allow you to remove the main sheet metal framearound the washing machine. The lid switch assembly is located under the topconsole. Now, remove it and replace with the new assembly and put it backtogether.
Please look this schematicfor lid switch location(part # 50)--
You can buy the lid switch from this link--
