First, i checked to see if the motor was bad. I moved the selector switch to spin, to see if it would drain the tub. After a couple minutes, it not only drained, but the motor started the spin cycle....motor not bad. Tilted the washer forward and saw 2 screws to remove the control cover. Instructions to remove the timer was on the back. Smelled the timer and same odor. Ordered new part and reverse assembly. Set to light wash load and let it cycle. OK !!
