The heating element is coming on when it shouldn't.its likely that the pressure pot that is Level sensor sender unit is being blocked with sludge. You'll find this under the machine, either screwed to the RH side of the tub, near to the front of the machine secured by three screws, or attached to the side of the big hose that goes from the tub to the pump,secured by a Jubilee clip, under the machine.disconnect the power and remove the pressure pot, in both cases it's a long rigid white plastic tube, from one end of which comes a narrow flexible plastic hose which goes up to the top of the cabinet and is attached to the pressure switch itself. This tube is likely to have a load of muck in it, as its bottom end. Clean this out, and if your element didn't burn out, then everything should now be fine. hope this helps

The washer fills and agitates, and spins, but when it is stopping the spin cycle it makes a really loud groaning noise and my tenant says there is a rubber smell.


The brake shoes are not grabbing like they should, the rubber smell is the motor coupling. This is putting a load on that coupling and will soon cause it to fail.

It has gotten very loud and makes banging noise in spin cycle, now I have found hard plastic strips after wash and smells like burnt rubber.


Hello. Most likely the transmission has gone bad resulting in dislodging of the tub causing the plastic and the burnt rubber. This is probably not worth repairing unless it is under warranty and less than 3 years old. This is the perfect time to get an energy star washer which has a government rebate of 75 dollars. Joe

The rubber belt is worn and slipping under load. (like a fan belt)

Loud noise, then not so loud, but now electrical burning smell and little draining


the smell is your clutch and the lack of draining is a clogged washer drain protector. see these at www.repairclinic.com drain protector is part 541811 and clutch is 2670. go there enter model number and scroll down to the red 100 click it and look for these part numbers.

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry

The basket drive and the drive block will need replacing. The nut that holds the basket to the drive block may have come loose causing the drive block to 'jump' over and damage the tabs on the basket drive that causes the thumping as the spin cycle ends. To repair, you will need to purchase a basket drive and drive block. The agitator, balance ring, basket and transmission, will have to be removed in order to replace the basket drive. If less than 3ys old, consider contacting whirlpool for possible warranty concession.
