I have a Frigidaire Gallery top loading washer with attached dryer stacked on top. The model number is GLET1041AS1. It sometimes will not spin. The water drains, but it doesn't spin and has a burning smell. I am wondering if this is the belt? Thought I would ask the experts before I tear this baby apart to see what's going on. I'm a girl, but have fixed a lot of appliances by using forums like this and just asking questions. Thanks so much in advance for any help and let me know if any other information is needed.

Is the issue with the washer, or dryer ? In the title it say's "dryer won't spin" - but you go on to describe how it drains first.

Remove the front panel and watch the motor and transmission pulleys during spin, see if the belt is being dragged across a stuck transmission pulley making the smell. Though I'd expect to see a lotta smoke if that were that case. But have a look.

Does the lid lock during spin?

I will check that out. Yes, the lid did lock during spin. There is no smoke, just a burnt rubber smell.

After I notice that it didn't spin, I have to manually turn it to loosen it up a bit, then hold my finger on the lid latch thing (sorry, don't know the technical name for it), and then help it get going and it finishes just fine.

It also only seems to do it when there is a small load in the washer.
