Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When washing , the drum spins but the water is still in the washer. When we first learned of the problem we smelled something like burned rubber but the belt was fine and it would drain some times. I did some trouble shooting and it is not the drain hose not the belt that turns the bottom of the drum or the switch.

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.

Washer wont spin, smells like burning rubber


The burning rubber smell is coming from the belt which goes around the drum and is driven by the motor. The belt has probably stretched and is now slipping. It will need to be replaced.

Good luck!

The washine machine finished it's cycle but there was smoke coming out of the drum and a burning rubber smell


The usual cause of smoke coming out of drum is that the heater element has come on or stayed on with no water in the drum
Try it on a spin cycle only, if smoke still comes out of drum, then could be a faulty pump, or main motor is burning.

There was a rubber smell, now washer won't spin.


It is possible that the bearings supporting the drum have seized

Was the machine noisy before it stopped?

If there is tension on the belts and the drum is locked then the motor will spin and burn the belts.

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.

Kenmore Elite washer, model # 22942101 Spin cycle not working. The water drained out but the drum does not spin. It smells as if something burned out.


If the water drained out, then it sounds like the motor is still good.

I would check if the brake were failed in some manner since you smelled something, and if that is OK, then it's probably a failed gearbox.

My kenmore 70 series will not spin water out


Sounds like the tranny is possibly shot. The motor spins backwards to extract, and if the tranny is bound up the belt may spin and burn.
