The washer does agitate, pump and spin, but slow and it sounds like something is rubbing. Is this sticking brake or brake cam (whatever that is)? It also stops fast and hard not normal either. Should I lube or grease something? Thanks in advance! Ed.

This is a direct drive Whirlpool made machine that does not have a belt. I suspect your brakes are hanging up and the burning smell is the clutch or the brakes.

See the STicky at the top of t his page on direct drive brakes for info on how to take a look at them.
