Wrong category. You will get a faster response if you post the Make, Model of machine. Give as many details as you can. For example: "a funny smell comming from the motor, or a burnt electronic smell. I wold suggest reffering to the Machine's User manual, error codes/troubleshooting section. Or the Manufacturer's website, troubleshooting.

Washing machine has a funny smell and has a code of pau13

"PAU" usually will display if the cycle has been interrupted and will include the estimated cycle time, please ensure that the door on washer lock is tightly engaging. If the unit is producing a smell you may try the information below to assist in resolving this issue.

Spray the interior of the front of the washer with a kitchen cleanser and allow it to soak into the seal's small ridges.

Use cotton swabs to get between the edges of the seal and remove the built-up dirt and debris. Use as many swabs as necessary in order to completely remove the grime. Spray the top of the washer with cleanser, including the cups for the detergent and fabric softener, along with the bleach compartment.

Wipe the cleanser off with a rag to remove all of the debris and lint that has built up. Add 2 cups of bleach to the washer's bleach compartment and close the lid.

Turn the washer on to the clean cycle; if your washer does not have this option, turn to a regular wash cycle. Allow the washer to run the entire cycle on hot, with a cold rinse, if possible. Wipe out the inside of the washer with your rag and cleaner to make sure there is no bleach left from the wash cycle.

When my Amana washing machine begins to spin the motor shuts off and it will not start for a few minutes also there is a funny smell

The motor is being overloaded, or is old. The funny smell is the motor over heating. Do you get an error code -blinking lights?

Let me know

Will not spin and smells funny

Does the washer agitate while in wash cycle? Does it move at all? It may be that the motor that drives the spin and wash cycle is not working. If it smells funny, it usually means that you have bearings gone bad or a belt, if it is belt drive, broken. You can replace these parts. All the parts involved with spinning can be replaced. The parts are available from the maker. It may be a spin clutch, agitator gear, pulley, or a transfer case..

Terrible Smell

Try a Quarter cup of dish washer detergent and a hot wash. this will flush out the inner bowl. Make sure you use the powder only and watch for over foaming. You might be getting a funny smell from the fabric conditioner.This stuff forms badly to the side of the bowls like glue. You couild take the bowl to pump hose off and clean the system out including the pump making sure you unplug the washing machine first. I would personally flush it out two or three times first. steve NZL, keep it simple
