I recommend to stop the use of the dryer immediately and call an expert repairman to your home. The smell of burning can only mean bad things, so better safe than sorry.

My LG washer stopped mid-load at spin cycle, how can I fix this?


It sounds like a serious fault if there is no power the fuse has gone or some item has burnt out . You will have to arrange for a service engineer to look at it more closely.

Washer machine front loader wont fill up and wont drain


it maybe that the pump winding is open circuit some machines use the pump winding as the neutral line for the water valves so if the pump fails they wont fill no point in it filling if it wont empty

Every time i start the machine it keeps filling with water and won't stop then there seems to be a burning smell wot is the problem? its a indiset we125


Sounds like it could be a sticking inlet valve, or the pressure switch is not working that controls the water level, could be a blocked pressure chamber, this is located at the bottom rear of washer.

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Maytag washer sounds like a jackhammer when rinsing - this is a new thing with all loads. Yesterday it shut down mid cycle while still full of water and we smelled a burning rubber smell. Any ideas?


There is only one belt on the machine (the burning rubber smell, probably). Sounds like something is wrong with the clutch /drive mechanism. Unless your an accomplished DIY'er, it sounds like a job for the Maytag Man.
Sorry.........................

Ideset front load washer


If no water is entering the drum, and it is not leaking out anywere, then there can be no water coming in at all, unless the pump is coming on right away and pumping the water out., check the waste outlet pipe as it is filling, and see if water is discharging from hose
One other possibility is that the belt is off and the whining niose is the motor turning on it's own with out turning the drum.
This being the case, u probably wouldn't see any water in the drum, due to the small amount that they take in.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washer just stopped


I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
