Spoke with a trusted repair man, described the problem best as I could. I smelled a burning rubber smell. Got on Internet for troubleshooting problems, 77% likely a drive belt. BINGO! Ordered a new belt, took old one off, cleaned the pulley ( it had burnt rubber stuck on it, difficult to remove) lightly sanded pulley just so it would be really smooth. replaced belt. Magic, it worked. I am no repair woman, but carefully listening and explaining helped. Oh, belt is under the very bottom of machine. Very easy to get to, just tilt back and lodge at an angle and make sure it doesn't move.
