I am having a problem with my washer- Frigidaire Gallery model no. GLWS1339ES0 (I hope that is correct, some numbers were scratched pretty good). It will not spin at all. All other cycles are working properly- it agitates and drains fine, but when it reaches the spin cycle it does nothing and I can smell an odor of something burning. What could this be and what can be done to repair it? Thanks anyone who can lend their expertise.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

I have already removed the front panel, and took all the hoses off the pump to make sure they were clear and inspected the belt. It looked like new and had no bad spots. I ran the washer through a cycle, and it runs fine until the spin cycle. I was originally thinking the belt as well, because of the burning smell which I assumed was from friction involving the belt. The smell is only during the spin cycle.

No, there is absolutely nothing during the spin cycle other than the odor.

Check the lid switch/lock assembly, it has a switch mounted to the side that is only used to make it not run in agitate with the lid open. The other part of the switch is for spin which also locks the lid while in spin, if the lock bi-metal inside the switch assembly fails it can cause only one winding to energize in the motor and the windings overheating is most likely the smell.
