Burning rubber smell during drying cycle

During the drying cycle of our Equator unit my wife noticed a stong burning rubber smell. There wasn't any squeaking, rocking or banging occurring at that time. This hasn't happened before. Since it seems to be impossible to find a technician to repair it, i'll have to take a look myself.

MACHINE STOPPED - BURNING SMELL COMING FROM WASHER


The burning smell is from your coupling and when this breaks the rubber spins across the plastic face of the opposite coupling. Your washer will not wash or spin until this is replaced. fortunately these are cheap and easy to replace. Refer to my step by step instructions to replace yours.
Here is the guide:

It made a quite hum during the spin cycle, instead of the normal (much louder) spinning sound. When I turned it off I noticed it had a rubber/electric burning smell.


If it's a squealing sound, your belt is probably bad. If it's a humming noise with those smells you listed, it might be your transmission going bad.

Dishwasher not cleaning the dishes


Hi there. Here are some solutions that may help you combat this issue with the non cleaning of the dishes during the wash.


• Choose another cycle for longer washing
time.
• Check rack loading section for proper
loading—avoid nesting items.
• Home water pressure may be too low—
should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch
(psi).
• Check incoming water temperature. It
should be at least 120°F (49°C). (See
Factors Affecting Performance.)
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard
water, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. (See Detergent Chart.)
• Use fresh detergent.
• Check to make sure funnel in top rack is not
blocked.
• Make sure items are not blocking the spray
arms, preventing them from rotating.
• Check to see if the rinse aid dispenser
needs refilling.


Next, you mentioned in your text that you were experiencing a burning scent after the was or during it. i have a few solutions for that as well.

• Soiled dishes left in dishwasher too long can
create an odor. Use Rinse & Hold cycle.
• There will be a "new" smell when first
installed. This is normal.
• Check to see if unit is draining properly.

One more thing, sometimes food or plastic dishware will fall between the spaces in the basket that holds the dishes. these plastics can be burned by the heating element inducing a burning scent during the drying process. always make sure that all plastics are secure before you start the cycle. food can get stuck on this heater element as well causing a burned smell.

Strong ozone-like burning smell


Sounds to me like the motherboard inside the unit is on it's way to thermal overload. This is a common problem with this particular model. You'll smell electronics burning and one day it'll quit altogether with a burst of smoke. I had this happen to me and I traced the problem back to a faulty triac (transistor-like device) that overheated and caused the circuit board and wiring harness to burn up from excessive current draw. I repaired my motherboard with a new triac ($6) and rewired the harnesses. A cooling fan on the heatsink of the board would solve this problem.
