Well, here we are 2 1/2 years later and the washer is dead again. This time it does not appear to be the drive gear that was replaced last time. Now, the cycle will run and with the tank full, after some agitation, the washer will sit there (on some test loads it may spin but generally it won't). There's an acrid burning smell coming from the washer along with some mild smoke.
Where do I start to look for this?
Thanks, as usual.
