Question about GE Washing Machines
The machine's performance is apparently normal if it agitates, drains, spins, and gets clothes clean. The apparent locking up the drive pulley in the CW does not indicate any problem, that's normal. Otherwise, the machine will not work properly. The burning smell is coming from the motor itself that's why it reoccurs each time the machine is used. The motor is overheating, starting to go out, and may need to be replaced soon.

What this indicate is that the panel of the washer has over gone some stress over time,the way that the washer can give sign to show it weakness is to bring out odor from the panel connected to the power supply or the motor connected tot he drum after some in agitation which might need a replacement or little service .
