Question about Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer
The machine must be partly disassembled, accessing parts from bottom of the appliance, and checking exactly what part is giving noise and smell.
The support was partly correct in telling that the motor was involved, but should have also told you that parts must be tested, and that there is more than one part possibly involved. In this case the complete repair and testing involves reading voltages while machine is operating. For safety reasons this must be done by a technician.
About parts that can be defective, a common fault is motor capacitor. Here the part:
Capacitor, Motor Start (Motor Capacitor) (Pt 20 in diag)Check motor coupler and all parts. Ensure that the tub is not stuck and free to move. If the tub is stuck, the noise was the motor, but the fault was elsewhere.
Here all parts and diagrams for this model.

If washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch. Check the wiring to the lid switch, if wiring seems to be fine then check the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt before/while agitating. Check connections to part#10 (lid switch) in below switch--
Pull the bottom of the front panel toward you. Then pull down on the front panel to release the top of the panel from the upper spring clips. Look for the two hex head screws under the front lip of the top panel. Remove the screws with a nut driver and raise the top panel up. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
