It sounds like it could be the lid switch, check to make sure the lid switch is clicking when you close the lid.

SOURCE: kenmore 90 series loud whirring/howling noise during spin cycle

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate or spin out.

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

What you need to do (what I would do) is replace the motor start capacitor:

MOTOR SMELLS OF BURNT MOTOR WINDINGS. iS IT NORMAL


No, the pump works while spinning. The burnt smell is probably the belt, especially if your wife saw smoke. Did she put a big load in it at the time?

The belt will slip until the tub catches up with the motor. If there is a heavy load, it can burn the belt up. I would replace it. Make sure the idler pulley on the motor moves freely also.

SMELLS LIKE A BELT BURNING AFTER i WASHED A RUG


KatieD,

If it won't spin or drain water, you are right to look for a drive belt related problem. The belt is underneath the bottom floor pan.

Here's what I did:

1) leaned the washer back a bit and propped something firm and secure under the front edge.

2) after seeing the belt was intact, I pulled it off, it is seven years old, and not too stiff.

3) After making sure no limbs were under or inside the machine, I had my wife start the machine in the spin cycle and watched as one of the 2 smaller pulley's in the corners spun very quickly. This was the motor pulley. Had my wife turn if off.

4) Attempted to turn each of the 3 pulleys that the belt had been wrapped around. The large plastic transmission pulley in the center turned with a little effort. The small metal pulley for the motor turned with very little effort. The remaining metal pulley in another corner would barely turn at all, and it should have been the easiest to turn. This pulley was for the drain pump and was nearly seized up.

I'm sure this is my problem as it is a fairly common point of failure and one of the most inexpensive repairs for the FIY'r. New drain pump should be about $70-$90.

Hope this helps you with your problem!

GE Top Load Washer WLSR2000G3WW~smells like burning and wont drain


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kenmore Washer Won't Drain


yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.

the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.
