Question about Washing Machines
Washer will fill with water but will not drain. Then it makes a humming noise like it is trying to drain and spin but nothing happens. It smells like something is burning.
The bearings are bad if it is an older unit you are better off buying a new one

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.
