Most likely the transmission on the motor has seized and will need to be repaired. Look under the washer, if there is black grease on the floor then its time to replace the motor and/or the transmission. If you have seen smoke then its probably the case.

It sounds like the motor is heating up and tripping the overload. The squealing is probably coming from you pump. Tilt the washer back and turn the pulley for the pump by hand and if it make the squeal, replace. If it does not you may have a bad transmission.

Washer started to smoke during spin cycle then a cracking noise began after that.

You may just have a defective drive belt. The motor itself will smoke under certain failing circumstances. Can you give me a model # ?

Shorting out when you turn the dial on front ,was making funny noise the other day too

Please post a model number. What do you mean by 'shorting out'? Was there a pop, or spark, smoke, or burning smell? What was the funny noise? A hum, a clanking, a squeal? And what area of the machine did it come from? Does the machine agitate, spin, or fill? Thanks.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired

Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

I have a quite normal front load whirlpool washing machine and the feeling when I clean my clothes is that the smell is that fresh smell anymore, does not smell like softener or any soap but a horrible...

Oh angel!
a rose by any other name!

If your clothes smell worse after washing then the machine is full of gunge from all the previous washes. One of the worst things that puts a gluggy deposit inside machines is of all things Softener!
You could try putting a generous two cups of Sugar Soap Concentrate into your machine and filling it with warm water. Then let it stand for 24 hrs, Then start the wash cycle.
This may clear the gunge. If not the only sure remedy is a strip down and degunk and that will cost you a few dollars.
