    I have same problem after water came out of the bottom of machine last night, we opened the front and could not find any leaking by the hoses. We put it through a wash cycle and it began to smell like rubber burning. we stopped the cycle and emptied the water but we saw it leaking above the tub and down the back. Is this machine shot? Should we call a mechanic or go to Lowes for a new washing machine?
    Please help.
    Thanks.

    Washing machine Bosch WAA24163SN started producing a chemical smell, and last load was producing smoke as well. Had to stop the load.

Smell of burning rubber and smoke from drawer


Sounds like your drive belt is loose or worn out. You will probably need a new belt. Is it possible something got inside the machine and jammed the belt?

My Frigidaire Washer began pouring out smoke. Smelled like burnt rubber and the smoke from the garage filled my home. Had to call out fire department. not an electrical issue


The bearing on the main spindle probably seized and the motor continued running and burned up the belt. The belt will need to be replaced, and whatever caused the issue in the first place will need to be remedied weather it was a bearing or something else.

Smells like rubber burning and then the machine starting smoking...


probably the belt . Make sure the tub is turning freely . If not check for nail in one of the holes or an article of clothes jammed between tubs. If it turns freely just change the belt

I have a 2 year old GE WCVH6260HWW front loading washing machine. Last night I smelled burning and there was actuall smoke in the room. I just shut it down. To me it smelled like a rubber (belt) type...


Pull the back panel off and look at he drive belt. My pully nut loosened up and caused extreme vibration (more than usual). The pulley is aluminum and it rounded out the center hole of the pulley. The belt finally came off. I replaced the pulley and belt.

Washer was pouring out smoke and smelled liked burnt rubber


You most likelyhave burned a drive belt. Could be a couple things. If the machine was loaded to the max and a bit more, it is possible that a small article of clothes may have been flung into the outer tub and into the pump... this can freeze it up and the motor will keep trying to turn the belt against a frozen pulley.
You'll need to open the machine and check the pump for blockage and change the belt... let us know if we can help with procedures..

Smoking washing machine


Switch it off before you burn your house down

The drum support sounds to have either cracked or come loose allowing the drum to run on the door gasket

The friction will cause the rubber to melt and burn hence the smoke.

Get a service person out to it asap

Washing machine spins slowly and smells of burning rubber


The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.
