Maytag washer MAV6650aww burning smell


OK, this model has a known issue with a bad pump design. The bearing on the pump goes bad and will lock up. The burning smell is the belt trying to turn the pump. Look under the unit and see if you see rubber residue at the pump. Here is the pump to order. To replace the pump, tilt the unit back and remove the belt. Remove the back lower left side access panel. Remove the 2 hoses, then the 3 bolts that hold the pump down. Replace in reverse order. The pump is a new design it looks completely different but will last you the life of the unit.

White smoke coming from the machine, it was in the middle of the extended cycle. stopped machine and unplugged. Smells as though something burned.


White smoke coming from the machine, it was in the middle of the extended cycle. stopped machine and unplugged. Smells as though something burned.

Usually the first repair a Maytag washer needs is to replace the belts. They can wear out and smell.
The belts are located on the very bottom of the machine. They are not covered. If you pull out the washer about 2 feet and lean it back against the wall you will see the belts on the bottom.

If they have shiny parts, or one of them was sticking. You will be able to see if it is burned.
I've made a diagram to help.
The "main drive pully" is the belt that is most likely to be burned. It is also possible for a clothing item such as a baby's sock, to get caught in the pump. That being the case, the pump belt can burn.
If you replace the belts, which you should do if the machine is 10 years old. You must replace them with Maytag belts. This is important, because they are designed to allow some slippage. If you replaced them with belts of the correct size but not the right type, the machine will not work properly.
Of course, the machine can have electrical problems, but it is rare. Let me know what you find and I can advise you further. Happy New Year, Mark

Burning smell and smoke


Sounds like the belt has burnt off. You can check this by tilting the machine back and looking under it. Sometimes the belt gets hard and just starts to slip, then it will smoke and burn off. If this is the case, Just replace the belt and this will fix it.

Burning Smell - smoking coming out of it


I believe we tracked it down to the pressure switch mounted on the drain pump. The device had a strong electrical burn smell and is positioned where it could easily have smoked the basket. We're putting the washer back into service and if I have a recurrence I will post the information. BTW ... Replacement was simple and the part was $26 including shipping.
