At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Wont spin cycle at full speed


Burning smell is a slipping belt. These are tricky to get apart and diagnose but find the reason the belt is slipping and replacing it will solve your problem. Could be clutch, bearing or gearcase related.

Is there a reset button?


THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON ON THE WASHER, ONLY THE OVERLOAD AND THERMAL LIMITER ON THE MOTOR. SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE MOTOR IS BAD, BUT CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE PULLEYS TURN FREELY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE BEFORE CONDEMNING MOTOR.

WHDSR209D Washer


if you have a rubber smell that means that the belt is burning through. Several problems can be the case.
1 bearing of the drum ( check if it turns freely if so the bearing is ok)\
2 the belt is worn and need to be replaced.
3 carbon brushes in motor are worn
4 bearing in motor is gone

open the backside of the machine and check belt.
think that is your problem

How can you tell if the motor is bad or you just need a belt


You can turn it on in spin mode with the lid down. Motor should come on when you turn on the it will have a spin down noise and a click when you turn it off. Belts normally have a burning rubber smell when they go out but this can also be caused by drive problems.

EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times


Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.

Whirlpool washer slow to spin


Yes I happens to work a lot with this type of machines. Normally when the spin is too slow the problem rises form a week voltage, motor winding too week for the velocity. I means that the winding in the motor might have gotten burn and weakened the winding to the point where when the motor ask for more voltage to spins the housing the winding heat up. That is why you smell as something burning. The system in this type of machines is not complex but tedious. If everything else work in the machine then it is the motor.
