occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks.
Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment,
normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the
If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.
I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.
hope this helps

SOURCE: burning rubber smell
Even though manufacturers' love to advertise it, I personally would not load "too many items", as it may cause excessive normal ware and tear on your machine parts, motor, belt, etc.
Yes; the smell can be the belt and possibly your motor as well. The motor may be spinning, but the weight may be too much when the belt is engaging to rotate the drum. I would be careful not to burn the motor (About $120 - part only)
You should be able to access and inspect the drive-belt in the rear of the machine by removing an access panel (back of washer).
To replace the belt if fairly simple. Remove and re-install by wedging a long screw driver in between the belt and metal pulley (circular), while simultaneously rotating the pulley.
You may be required to make a belt repair if you start to have problems with your "washer not spinning" or "making a noise/not spinning"
