You need to remove the cabinet from the washer and run it that way in an attempt to locate the source of the smell and/or smoke.

Jon, from your very first picture it is real obvious what is burning.....

You have destroyed that new pump you installed, (or if the old pump when you tried to take it off you didn't get it back into place when you put things back together). You didn't get the four pump foot pegs mounted into the four little round indentions in the motor or if you did you didn't install the pump clips to keep the pump in place and the pump spun around and the mounting post/legs of the pump have been chewed off from entering into the running motor, thus your burning/melted plastic smell.

Actually on second look at more of your pictures that does appear to be your old orignal pump that was leaking that you couldn't get off and the damage may have been done when you tried to remove the pump. Regardless, now you for sure need to replace that pump.

Use it if you want to take a chance of flooding your house with 28 gallons of water, if the plastic melts thru on the end. of the pump.

Good advice for our "Lurker", Pegi...... It actually looks like the bottom corner of the front of his pump is already almost cracked all the way through already.

I'm really surprised it isn't already pouring water out.

Most likely the legs of the pump were jammed down in the fan on the motor, (motor jammed, won't start, starts to smell as it burns up).
