When you start a program do you hear a whirring \ pumping noise, and is it after that stops that the washer stops, or do you then hear water coming into the dishwasher?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No the water stops. And today I smelt something burning and smoke coming from the back of the washer

It sounds like the main circulation pump has failed, this would suggest the repair is probably not economical, however if you provide me the model number which is often found on the rating plate down the side of the door I can look up the cost of the part.
