Washer smokes half way through wash cycle Technician checked scree and replaced water regulator/pump but still smokes
Call your technician again. You paid him to fix the problem - which he clearly has not.
This is potentially a fire risk.
If it is a few days before technician will arrive, it is possible to identify where the smoke is coming from yourself.
If you are used to electrical repairs, it is possible to remove the cover and run the machine with the cover off to observe components. Obviously this is a potentially dangerous situation, so do not touch the machine at all in this condition to avoid electrocution - nor touch anything for 10 minutes after unplugging, as voltages can be stored and still be lethal.
It could be a component on the control board, a loose connection, a partially broken wire, loose belt tensioner, motor capacitor, motor brushes, loose belt, rubbing component.
Spotting it smoking will certainly help identify it!
