SOURCE: A burning smell while Maytag neptune was washing.

Shut down and unplug machine a.s.a.p.! It could be your door latch wax motor failing which will burn the R11 (resistor) and Q6 (triac) on the machine control board. You did not mention which Neptune you had... If it is a MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker and you have not replaced the door latch wax motor (12002535) then your time is up. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for details for the repair kit or you can purchase a new control board and 12002535 wax motor and be up running quickly before the clothes pile get too high.

It could be the seal and/or bearings if the machine is starting to get loud in the high speed spin cycle. If so, See www.neptunebearing.com for the seal and bearing kit plus they offer a special Neptune bearing tool for rent called the tony tool. A Maytag technician will want to charge you $900 to replace the whole outer tub? Why replace it when just the bearings and seal kit need changed?

SOURCE: Maytag Washer Stopped Working

I was about to order a new lid switch assembly, but I decided to try one more thing. I disconnected the wires from the check switch and cleaned the connections - there was a layer of oxidation. The machine started right up after I reconnected the wires and plugged it back in.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.26902691

See the section on the Machine Base.

There are a number of balance springs and vibration pads that help keep the tub from vibrating and going out of balance.

It's possible that one or more of these is broken, loose or damaged.

Following is a description of how to remove the cabinet to get access to them.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=135

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for their direct drive washers.

For the vibration, I'd check the springs and vibration pads.

While you have the cabinet off, I'd pull the pump and motor and check the Motor Coupler. This could be the cause of the "burning smell"

If the belts are old they will allow the motor too much outward room, so that the motor shaft can rub against the bottom of the machine. Also make sure the motor rollers are not cracked, which they have a tendency to do.

The belt has been ruined. Basically there was to much load on the belt. You will need to replace the belt, maybe a 20 dollar fix and should take no longer then 15 minutes. Just make sure that before you go to the parts house, your remove the old belt and take it with you along with the model and serial number of the machine.

Please rate.

Maytag washer MAV208DAWW does not spin out the water completely from clothes after spin cycle.


do you smell anything burning or a burning oder,your belt could be glazed from over loading the washer and now the belt is slipping,also check the drain hose for kinks making for a slow drain,do you hear any noises when draining like something could be stuck in the pump, maybe to much detergent and it's oversudsing, or you could have a bad trainy,check the belt first belt part number is 21352320 and it's around 25 bucks

WASHER STARTS MAKING LOUD NOISES WHEN SPINNING SOUNDS LIKE IT IS OFF BALANCE BUT NOT. ALSO FAINT SMELL OF BURNT RUBBER.


The washing machine will do this if the load is unbalanced. Usually due to either an excessively heavy and/or large load. The burning rubber smell is just the drive belt dealing with the imbalance. Often the washing machine will self-balance itself, but it's a good idea to open the lid and re-distribute the load. Or remove some stuff if it seems too heavy.
