The back and fourth motion is normal. we have a ge and it does the same thing. for the slow spin and burt rubber smell the drive belt is more than likely streched, the fast fix is to replace the belt. HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

My washer fills and drains but does not agitate and smells like burt rubber. what could the problem be

flip washer over and check the coupling between the motor and transmission of washer. if the coupling is shot it will not agitate or spin. if this model has a belt then check to see if it is broke!

Washing machine spins slowly and smells of burning rubber

The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.

If you mean the inner drum - remove the agitator, pull off the sofetener cup and remove the 15mm bolt down inside to remove agitator, then secure inner drum to center bearing.
If you mean the outer drum, check the holding down springs visually, remove the front panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then remove 2 small bolts to remove front panel.
Also check and replace drive belt, tilt machine backwards to gain access underneath.
