Default washer stopped running and smoking
Model Number: RAX73245KQ0   Brand: Roper   Age: 5 - 10 years

My washer started running harder than usual and ever since we replaced the coupler a month ago it has had an odor like something is hot. Yesterday it stopped mid-cycle and was smoking. After letting it sit awhile and then checking to make sure it wasn't the lid switch, I put it on spin and it worked, but after the spin cycle it started smoking again.
Any ideas is greatly appreciated!
