Smells like belts are burning during rinse cycle while washing

We have a GE Spacemaker model #WSM2700RCWAD, serial #ZL650308W, motor L1-N; L2-N 5.0A.
Recently while doing the wash, the rinse cycle was going and it smelled like the belts were worn and burning. How can I gain access to the problem and where can I go to get replacement parts, etc.?

TAKE OFF THE FRONT PANEL BY TAKING OUT THE TWO SCREWS AT THE BOTTOM. SLIDE THE PANEL DOWN ABOUT HALF AN INCH AND THEN PULL OUT. YOU CAN NOW SEE THE INNER WORKINGS. AS FOR PARTS, TRY WWW.MARCONE.COM

Our 5 year old washer makes loud knocking noise and moves during the final rinse cycle. We have balanced it, checked the feet, leveled it to no avail. It is getting worse and the last wash cycle we had a...


Sounds like you have a belt issue. Take the back off and look around. The belt probally just came off of the pully or the motor. If you dont see anything wrong then leave the back off and watch what happens when you get to the rinse cycle. Im guessing though that you will see a fray in the belt ergo why it still works kinda. To replace it you need the model number and make. And just reverse the way you take it out. Hope it helps and let me know what you find.

Burned rubber smell after replacing motor coupler, otherwise runs


The most common cause for the coupler failing is a bad gearcase. The machine should go through a neutral drain before the spin if it doesn't drain the water first it over works the motor trying to spin a full tub. No belt on this one, odor could be from the motor or the coupler starting to shred again.

Washer stopped during wash cycle, burning smell


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dryer-Parts/index.aspx Take a look at what a new motor costs for your machine and go from there. Is may not be a motor is could be a belt or a bearing. I rebiult a washer for less then 50 dollars that one did not need a motor just bearings and a belt. I would take the washer apart so you can get an idea of what went wrong and then look at parts to repair it and decide what to do good luck

Washer stopped spin cycle smell like burning rubber


hello if the belt is broken quite easy to put back on .take the back off you should see the belt if it has snaped or just come off .at the bottom of the washer you should see the motor at the back of the motor you should see 2 nuts this holds the motor on get a felt tip pen and mark the 2 nuts where they are fixed so you know where to tighten back on . get spanner and loosen the 2 nuts the motor should drop down put the belt back on and tighten up good luck

Won't Spin the water out...


Hiya WRock04... would be nice to have make and model.. otherwise.. look to replacing the brushes in the motor if the machine has done relatively little work... 3-5 yrs in some cases... otherwise a new motor unfortunately may be required.. specially if you can smell burning!!

Wierd smell from washer


If the machine will run in wash but not in rinse then I would check the motor first. If the motor is getting too hot toward the end of the wash cycle it may very well have a fault in the foward windings. When in the spin mode the motor is reversed so may continue to operate.

Burn Smell (electrical) from my GE WPSE4200A0WW


We have the same problem, and found out the the electric motor is running very hot. Replacing the motor seam to cure the problem, but the motor is not inexpensive. $200 to $350.
