My washing machine spins really fast and loud it sounds like its going to explode then towards the end there is a burning rubber smell. What causes this?

Is this the model DF-7 or DF-8 from the silver series or the model SF-12 or SF-13 from the gold series?

Your bearings or tub support is toast. The tub is wobbling causing it to rub the gasket (bellow) on the front which causes the burning smell.
Time for a new washer.
I love my new top load LG
