We have a Kenmore 80 series washer and recently it seems that it does not always run the spin cycle. When this happens we smell an electrical smell that has come from the washer. Strangely, we can then manually switch it to spin, and most times it will complete the spin cycle. However, sometimes we have to remove a large amount of clothes (it wasn't over full) in order for it to work.

It almost seems like the motor is going out, but that is just an assumption. Any ideas on the cause?
