It sounds like the lid switch is bad.Does it act as if the lid is open even when closed? A common problem is that its mounting method fails (breaks off) after some time. Quick way to test is:
Find the plastic striker in the lid and under matching hole in the washer's top you should be able to find this switch. Try to operate (close) that switch with your finger or a screw driver and operate the washer while holding it down. If now it works, the switch is the culprit. Available on-line around $30.

sounds as if you have a faulty lid switch, for safety reasons if the machine doesnt think the lid is closed it willnot spin/drain the waer out.

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)--

Sounds as if the drain pump is not ejecting the water fast enough. Did you notice of the washer is draining more slowly than usual or at all?
