Draining problem;
About the noise. If stumbles on the wash cycle and no noise occurs, is transmission problem. If the noise is present all the time the coupler that is located between the transmission and motor needs to be replace!

Washer make noise doing spin cycle smell smoke make the power cord warm to touch


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Joe. Usually, if a washer makes noises during spinning, it means the drive basket is broken. Make sure your pulley's are not sticking and rubbing the belt. This causes the basket to be unstable during the spin cycle. As far as the smell of smoke, try checking the belt and make sure it is not worn or loose. Inspect the motor to check for noises, grinding, or smoke. Your transmission may be burning up. Usually, the cord will remain warm, but not hot. The washer may be working extra if a belt is sticking or during the spinning process. If you have any other questions Joe, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

During spin cycle a grinding noise starts and a burning smell develops if I let it spin on then smoke comes out


could be your motor coupling, clutch or brake linings. if it smells like rubber burning then it is your motor coupling,, ,,,,mine was doing that and found out the clip that holds on the part to disengage the brake had ground off the end of my basket drive tube and the arm fell down thus no spin ,part cost more than the washer is worth! guess i'll be picking up a new 1! yea the grinding noise could be in your clutch,brake area!

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!
