Our Whirlpool washer kicked off the circuit breaker and had a hot
"electrical" smell - although not a real strong smell. I turned on

removed some water to see if it would run more water in, but it just
agitates. On the part of the timer where I think it should pump out
the washer is silent - no humming. Agitate or silent that's all it
Funny thing is 2 days ago we got a new basket to replace the old one
that had some rust around some of the holes. The basket is still in
the box and I think I can return it ($115) if this washer isn't worth
