Question about GE Washing Machines
Certainly-- the burning rubber is probably a loose or broken drive belt underneath
however the ultimate decision can be made after a service person has inspected it and quoted on repairs and parts ( if still available)

I am sorry to say that you WILL need a tech to come out and service this unit. From what you are telling me it is either a dead short in the motor, OR one of the conntections got wet and cause a short. BUT I would put my money on the motor, since this is a direct drive unit. Sorry

you have a broken coupler...this is a plastic and rubber part that connects the motor to the transmission. A $20 part
How good are you and your tools?

The burning smell is from your coupling and when this breaks the rubber spins across the plastic face of the opposite coupling. Your washer will not wash or spin until this is replaced. fortunately these are cheap and easy to replace. Refer to my step by step instructions to replace yours.
Here is the guide:
