Question about Washing Machines
Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
It sounds like you may be having problems with the motor. It may be overheating or it could be as simple as a bad wire (judging from the burnt smell ).
Get a good look at the motor. Unscrew the screws on the console. They'll be on each end, either on the front or back depending on age. Rotated the console forward and up to lift it. Pop out the clips on each side of the top (under the console) with a screw driver. Disconnect the lid switch harness. Now you can tilt the cabinet forward and remove it.
Take a look at the wire harness on the motor to see if there are any bad wires.
Take the water pump off the front of the motor to see if anything is caught inside.
See if the motor turns freely.
Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
