1. I loaded the washer and added cloter and detergent and started the cycle. After was filled in completely and at the time of about to start to clean/rotate the swtich tripped and got a burning smell.

2. I waited for a day and started the next day and it worked fine for the cycle loaded on the previous day and completed successfully. After loading another load, the situation repeated.

3. now after waiting for more than a day again it just does not work and get a burning smell.
