Question about Samsung Washing Machines
During last spin cycle of a heavy load, washer made load noise, stopped spinning, smelled like burning belt and now drum is out of alignment. It will spin but drum is not sitting evenly, makes rubbing noises. Any suggestions for repair?

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

cooleyd, is the sound like a chunk a chunk a chunk noise. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low windings. the motor overheats and thus the burning smell. This is a common failure on these GE's. They came out with a motor kit with new harness and start cap. Remove the front panel by pushing on the 2 clips just below the top on each side. The panel will pull out. See if yours has the kit. It will have a start capacitor on the right side in front. On the motor harnes there will be a white and white/red wire. If you have a steady 120V during this jogging, you need the motor kit. Now with-out being there Im just trying to point you in the right direction. Other things to check would be the drain pump itself and whether there is something in between the tub and basket...Catriver..post back.

The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

There are a lot of things could cause the burning smell. Best thing will be to remove the service panel and to try to find out the smell source. Good luck!
