When i start the washer it makes a humming sound, and smells like electrical burning. If I spin the tub a few times it will start, but when the next cycle is supposed to start it will do the same thing. I then have to turn the tub to get it to do each cycle.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.
check the motor for that, there may be smoething stuck ther. for the humming sound, when did this started happening? for the smell, check for frounded wire. for repeating each cycle, try to check for the housing if its still operational because the burnt smell and the cycle repeating is linked.
time to replace the belt , might need a tub bearing too / tentioner pully might have froze . remove the back panel with the washer unpluged look to see if the tentioner is at its fullest possition if so replace the belt .
