Maytag A212s Will not spin on its own, has burning smell

My washer stopped spinning the other day and i smelled a burning rubber smell. If i grab the drum and start it spinning by hand it will then go until the next cycle, once it stops i need to help it again. when it is spinning there is also a mild knocking sound in the drum walls, I am not sure if that is related.

SOURCE: RUBBER LINER COLLECTING MOLD

I have been struggling with the same issue for a long time. Regular bleach and mold-killing products did not work. But I just tried Clorox "Washing Machine Cleaner" and was amazed. I scraped off the loose mold from the rubber gasket and then painted on the product, which is thicker than bleach. After about 20 min. I scrubbed it down with water and painted a second coat on the tough areas. No more mold. I also ran some through the machine per the instructions for good measure and ran another rinse cycle. I am in no way connected to Clorox, but I am so happy to be rid of this problem. Good luck. <!-- from fixya rte -->

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

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.

Washer wont spin, smells like burning glws1649


Burning smell could be the windings in the motor. Better not to use it and have it looked at. If the smell is a rubber smell then the belt is jammed while the motor spins. still needs intervention as it can catch on fire and you will have a bigger problem than the one you have now

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.
