I think I overloaded the machine. It won't spin or pump. The error code is dl? Oh, something smelled burnt too. Is this something I can repair myself or is my stupidity going to cost me hundreds of dollars with Sears?

Without the complete model number I will have to guess about the problem and the code. Also please remember, without being there it's really hard to diagnose a problem like this. It could be a number of things but I'll give it a try..
Sounds like you might have a burned up motor but I doubt it. If the machine sounds like it's trying to run but can't. There is a possibility that there is something in the pump. Knowing these machines like I do. The motors are very really bad. If it's not trying to run, first check and make sure that the power has not blown a breaker or fuse, which ever your home has. Now that you are sure that there is power to the unit. Be sure that the lid switch is working.
(I know a guy that took off work one day because his wife told him the washer had to be fixed or else. After he worked on it for 12 hours taking it apart and trying to find the problem. He realized that the lid was open the whole time his wife and himself had tried to get it to operate. Sure enough, after he put the machine back together for the fourth time. He closed the lid and it started working. He felt like a total moron.) This was mt brother. Anyway, sorry for the short story.
If the unit fills with water and then once it comes time to start agitating, it does nothing. Plus if you advance to spin and nothing happens. I would bypass the lid switch and make sure this is the problem. I hope this helps, good luck

Indesit washing machine pumnp burnt out, replaced it but it still won't pump or spin. Does it need a new programmer or can the programmer be fixed?

You're absolutely right. If you look at the wiring diagram on the machine it is clear that the drain pump is powered by triac on PCB (part code C00270972).
I think it is definitely safer and probably cheaper to replace than to repair the PCB.
It is always a good practice to visually inspect PCBs that there are no visible defects such burnt out elements, etc. before replacing. Sometimes the reason for burnout PCB may be on a completely different side.

Washing Machine - Bowl is full of water, won't progress to spin cycle. PU error code displayed.

When all else fails its usually the computer. There's a circuit board that goes bad (mine did after 20+ yrs) and cost around $60. You can usu. see a bulging resistor, capacitor, etc and smells 'burnt' to tell. If you're getting an error code that made be computer declaring itself dead! Sorry. Those beasts are SUCH a pain some times!

Maybe try Repair Clinic for a video. They MAY have a decent price on your board. Sears has its own site. LG Washing Machine Circuit Board Timer Parts

Fisher and paykel gwl15 wont completely drain

Also check the clear pressure tube for blockages,
Blow air down the pressure tube to remove any blockages
that would prevent water level from changing.

Smoke rubber smell, machine won't work now or drain

This could be a few things. THe burnt rubber smell is from the belt that is underneath that goes around the motor, transmission and the pump. The best way to find out what the problem is, you need to get the water out of the machine, then lean the washer backwards. once you can see underneath, take the belt off and the try to spin each pulley you see. The big one in the center is the transmission, it will be a little harder to turn. If there is only one big belt, the smaller pulley up front on the left is the motor, and the pulley in the back right is the pump. If there are two belts then then pump will be in the front right. check the pump first, if something has got caught in it and it can't spin freely, it wil overload the motor causing the washer to shut off.

Washing machine stopped spinning after several loads, and I smell a slight burning smell, won;t drain either.

it sounds like u might have some electrical problem in the controls however it may be the pump itsself has gone out but if u r getting an electrical smell could be causing the pump not to get power or the pump has burnt up causing the wires to get hot and start to melt myy bet is that the pump has gone out its not horribly bad to change out but kind of difficult for someone who isnt used to doing this kind of stuff

Washing machine not working

You probably burnt the belt. Take the front panel off, two screws at the bottom and let the motor cool off.

Increase the water level and then turn it to spin. see if it pumps out.

The belt will need to be replaced.
