It may be a cracked drain hose behind the drain/ clean out cap
or a loose clamp.
i had the same issue and fixed this myself in less than 20 minutes.
I also removed the drain cap and found missing laundry items and
a few other items blocking the system.
If you have not googled or checked you model online
you can find out the location of this cap, which is normally
behind the bottom front plate on your washing machine.
Generaly on the right side.

Jeanna, you are going to have to remove the lower panel and clean the drain pump filter. Easy job, once the panel is removed the filter will be right in front. Get a bucket and unscrew the filter cover and you should find a ton of lint and stuff in there. This model has a pressure switch that detects if there is water in the tub. If so it will do this pause and slow spin. Once the pump filter is clean you should be back.

It's going to cost you if your not handy as the problem is more than likely a small board which sends a message to a relay, but not the relays of the good old days.

If the FILTER is not cleaned after each load was completed this will happen.

Probable transmission failure

The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.
