This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Thanks for using FixYa. The smell might be due to burning of lid switch. If the washer isn't spinning then it might be dueto a Lid switch or due to a bad motor coupler. You can check for the lid switch& replace it--
First unplug the washing machine. Then remove the two screws that hold the top consolein place; these are located in back of the main console (where the dials are).Once removed, the entire console swivels back, exposing the wiresunderneath.
After this unplug the wiring harness that is connected to the washing machinetop flat surface. Now remove the two s-shaped brackets with a screwdriver byprying underneath. This will allow you to remove the main sheet metal framearound the washing machine. The lid switch assembly is located under the topconsole. Now, remove it and replace with the new assembly and put it backtogether.
Please look this schematicfor lid switch location(part # 50)--
You can buy the lid switch from this link--

This is the second time I have had to replace the drum/support shaft on this washer. Not only is it expensive, but very difficult to replace. Probably the very worst washer on the market for this reason. And I only do 3-4 light loads of laundry per week. A definate design flaw on the part of the manufacturer.

Hello msmm50 - Contact a professional so they can properly and accurately diagnose the unit for repairs. Sounds like you have a leak in the drain lines or the water valve.
