I need some help figuring out what is wrong with our washing machine. Maytag Performance top loading machine. It is not old but it is not new. It was in the house when we bought it, so I'm not sure what the age is? Last night my husband put a load of clothes in and turned it on. This morning (probably 12 hrs. later) I went to unload it. The machine had filled up but had not begun to wash (the soap was still sitting on top of the clothes). The dial had moved. I turned the machine off and then back on and it made a humming noise and smelled like burning. Anyone know what is wrong (burned up the motor)? Am I looking at a new machine in my future?
