Hello All:

I have an old Maytag lat8705aae top loading that started squealing last night when I went to wash a load of clothes. It only started squealing on the rinse & spin.
I went into check on it and there was a horrible burnt rubber smell and the basket seemed to not want to turn. I tried to start the cycle over but stopped it because I didn't want to get stuck with a washer full of water.

I emptied the clothes outand tried the rinse/spin cycle but it just makes some strange noise and the basket doesn't turn.

I don't know much about this washer as it is part of the house we rent.
Can anyone tell me how old this washer is and what may be going wrong with it? I don't know if it is even worth it to repair at this point or how much I would expect to pay for somethine like this.

Thanks for reading!!
