I own a stacked Whirlpool Thin Twin Washer/Dryer Combo. Yesterday I did a load of laundry, and the load abruptly stopped in the washer near the end of the cycle. When I checked on the laundry, it was ready to go into the final spin cycle, but the unit just made a humming sound and would not spin, nor would the water drain from the washer. The washer also had a "hot" smell. Upon further inspection, I found that a shirt had been caught under the paddles/center spinning mechanism. However, after pulling out the caught piece of laundry, the washer still would not work and sat idle in the cycle. I am thinking that perhaps a belt broke when the laundry became stuck. Your thoughts? Is this something that I can fix on my own, or do I need to hire a professional to come in? Thanks a million! Jen Meisner
