Try a small amount of soda crystals put it in the soap draw about half the amount you would normally use of regular soap powder and put it on the hottest wash it will break down any gunk or loose limescale which could be causing the smell.

Thank you

I have a burning smell coming from my LG front load washer. I googled it,it says it's the bearings. Which would be easier? Buying a different drum with bearings already pressed in or doing my own?

Holly, always easier to buy an assembly, but probably a lot more expensive. If you can remove bearing and take to a industrial supplier and get matching bearing, the cost would be a fraction of that of a new drum assy. If you or a friend can do it, go for it.
You may want to get a second opinion on what you are smelling, it very well could be the drum rubbing gasket if it is a burning rubber smell.Maybe call a good appliance Tech. have them diagnose and estimate repair. Check LG washer bearing link below.

LG WM2487*M Washer smells like burning rubber in spin cycle

Smells like, I mean sounds like, a belt is burning either from friction caused by a bad bearing, or, a loose belt is slipping on the pully a bit, causing it to heat up from the friction.

My washer LG WH2277HW won't spin and it has a burning smell to it.

Call out a service engineer as it needs to be looked at to see what is going on inside.

Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.
