Sounds like something going on with the motor. We had something similar happen to our washer. I would first check the circuit breaker and make sure that didn't shut off at all. If that is still on, sounds like it will need to be repaired. If under warranty definitley contact that manufacturer. If you end up repairing, get a quote first. Ours was cheaper to replace than to repair.
If you need help with replacing that or needing help to purchase anything please let me know
