    I have had the same problem with my washer for a while now. It started out as a burnt rubber smell...and now my washer will only spin cycle 1/4 loads! I have to do full wash loads and then take out 3/4 of the load and spin 1/4 at a time!!! It is So annoying!

Hello I have a Fisher and paykel 7.5g smart drive excellence washing machine it doesn't spin and I can smell something burning.thanku Kelly

Has it drained the water out. It will not spin until completely empty. If it is not draining then Iwould say the burning smell is the drain pump overheating. Do not try to run it like that as the drain pump will short out the main control board eventually. Bail the water out by hand, tip the machine back against the wall and check the pump on the front right side of bowl. Replace the pump.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen

Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

Sounds like the power steering pump is locking up and the belt is slipping. Get it checked out before you drive it.

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise

Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

Fisher & paykel waterpump / Burnt smell clothing

ok, have you checked for power at the power point? if you have power to the machine and the display doesn't light up after you have turned the power point on then your control module is faulty. only the phase 5 models don't power up if the pump is faulty, your machine is a phase 2 with a blue control module. by the way, what part of the machine did you pull apart? i think your pump was faulty which made the control module faulty. check the pump for a burning smell. if it is burnt then i"m sure your module is too. please reply if you need more help to fix this problem.please turn off the power b4 you work on it, don"t want any accidents . good luck.
