SOURCE: topload washer agitator does not move

Sounds like you've already replaced your lid switch and now the washer stopped agitating and spinning, but WILL still drain water. If I'm understanding these symptoms correctly, these are common symptoms of a broken motor coupling. The burning rubber smell is another symptom as the coupler has a rubber bushing that can tears apart when the coupler breaks. There may also be a strange rattling noise associated with these symptoms too. The coupling is located between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) and this is what transfers the energy from the drive motor to drive the transmission, which makes the drum spin and agitate. It is common for this coupling to wear out, strip, or break over a period of time. This is a very inexpensive replacement part (usually $15 or less) and can be replaced easily by the average do-it-yourselfer with a little guidance. The following link gives you step-by-step instructions how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

Some of the orginal motor couplings that came from the manufacturer were totally made of plastic. Over a period of time (especially with heavy loads) the center shaft on the coupling would strip out and the coupler would free spin. The manufacturer came out with a new improved, longer life coupling with a steel grommet. The link provides you with the new part number and where you can order the part if you wish go online. If you do not wish to order from the website, take the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common part they carry. I hope this helps you. If you require addtional assistance, please contact me and let me know.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 80 Washer Burning Smell

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission. It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts. Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes. The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

SOURCE: When washer is spinning it smells like something is burning

A burning smell means you have some slipping of the drive belt. I think your belt needs to be replaced. Another reason may be a binding in the tub. possibly a seized tub bearing. The only way to know is to take off the access cover at the back of the washer and visually inspect it first. you can spin the tub by hand from the back and this will give you an idea of what is binding.

Burning rubber smell and not spinning anymore


Probably time for a new belt. Replacement can be obtained at just about any appliance store. You may have to drain the basket manually and tilt washer forward to change the belt.

Washer wont spin, smells like burning glws1649


Burning smell could be the windings in the motor. Better not to use it and have it looked at. If the smell is a rubber smell then the belt is jammed while the motor spins. still needs intervention as it can catch on fire and you will have a bigger problem than the one you have now

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.
