Hi there,

since your washer is under warranty, have a tech take a look at it.

sounds like you may have a loose belt.

is there an error message on the display?

My washer wont spin and it smells like it is burning it is only 3 yrs old


The burning you smell is probably the belt slipping. There is a belt which is attached to pulleys. The belt engages to spin the basin in the washer. When this belt slips the burning smell happens because the pulleys are spinning and the belt isn't. You will probably need to adjust the tension on the pulleys or get a new belt. This can happen from constantly overloading the washer or trying to get the washer to wash and extra large load while the water level is set at a smaller load.

I HAVE A TOP LOAD MAYTAG WASHER AND WHEN IT GOES


You need to unclog your water pump. Sounds like something big is stuck in there if it's buzzing. Remove both large black water pump hoses and check hoses as well as the pump.

Washer fills with water, loud thump sound, no agitation occurs.


The thump is probably the motor trying to start followed by the burning smell of the belt slipping. See if something is jammed, but the most likely thing there is a bad transmission.

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Maytag washer sounds like a jackhammer when rinsing - this is a new thing with all loads. Yesterday it shut down mid cycle while still full of water and we smelled a burning rubber smell. Any ideas?


There is only one belt on the machine (the burning rubber smell, probably). Sounds like something is wrong with the clutch /drive mechanism. Unless your an accomplished DIY'er, it sounds like a job for the Maytag Man.
Sorry.........................

Maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom


The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

Washer just stopped


I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .
