My washer wont spin and it smells like it is burning it is only 3 yrs old


The burning you smell is probably the belt slipping. There is a belt which is attached to pulleys. The belt engages to spin the basin in the washer. When this belt slips the burning smell happens because the pulleys are spinning and the belt isn't. You will probably need to adjust the tension on the pulleys or get a new belt. This can happen from constantly overloading the washer or trying to get the washer to wash and extra large load while the water level is set at a smaller load.

My neptune washer smells like rubber burning when i wash clothes


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer.

The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer. Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the 2 plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.

Please post back for any further assistance.

My washing machine will not spin...


As you don't give the model, I can just give a generic reply.
Most front loaders are belt driven, and some top loaders are.
I think the main thing to look at first is the connection of the drive motor to the tub. If this is a belt - replace it and check the tensioner.
If it is a top loader using a gearbox, then the motor is likely to need either brushes or a new capacitor. Both items should be checked - so -
Belt ok? - Y= go to next question / N = Replace belt
Brushes ok Y= go to next question / N =Replace
Replace Motor Run Capacitor.

My washingmachine stopped working and gave off burning smell. How can I determine if its the motor thats burned out or something else?


Had one similar to this about three years ago. That burning smell would be the belt that runs the washer. Relatively easy to repair. You'll need make and model number to get the right replacement belt. Once you have it, get up under it, remove the old belt and put the new one on the same way. The belt will go around the pulley on the bottom of the washer drum, the motor and the tensioner. This should solve your problem. If you need more help, please let me know.
