Question about Washing Machines
I have Kenmore 70 Series Heavy Duty Plus Washer (Model 82370120 I think).
I run a load of clothes almost every night -- towels tonight, though not many. The washer filled with water, agitated, and didn't drain. When it finished (the timer went all the way around), I went to check on it and smelled something "electrical" -- like something had gotten hot. The washer is full of clothes and dirty water. I suspect the hot electrical smell developed when it tried to spin, but I don't know and won't risk spinning it again.
I've run the washer through its cycles -- it will agitate and will try to spin, but simply won't drain. Is it possible that the hose or something is clogged?
Yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.
the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.
