Whirlpool duet ghw9250 smells like burning rubber and very loud

Duet GHW 9250 has smelled like burning rubber the past 3 loads. I have unplugged the device as with the last load there was water all over the laundry room floor from the washer. The machine will also make very loud noises during a regular cycle.

    Morgan, yes the drum turns however the last load yesterday ended with the SUD error code. I unplugged the washer for a few hours and re-started it last night as the clothes were sopping wet and everyting worked ok but that dang burnt rubber smell is awful.

    A SUD code - Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, There may be something jamming the pump which is causing the smell.

SOURCE: laundry stinks

I find that the dryer does not dry the clothes enough. The washer can take a lot of laundry at one time but the dryer is not able to handle the load. The stink usually comes from a bit of moisture left in the the clothes, especially the towels. Break down your dryer loads or dry them on a timed cycle for a longer time.

SOURCE: Rotting Smell from Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer

Take the panel off of the front of your washer below the door and in the middle there is a round removable plastic door like piece. Take it out and clean out all of the junk in behind it. You might find loose change, nails and a variety of other thnigs that have become stuck in there besides mold. This will help with the smell and also the water that sometimes remains in your washer after the cycle is over. You need to do this once/twice year.

How do I remove odor from duet front load washer?


Assuming the odor is not a burning rubber smell or some other type of odor caused by a mechanical malfunction:

Remove the bottom of the washer (three screws I believe and above the drawer if you have one) and then open up the drain pump catch and clean it. You may want to put down some towels or even a bowl to catch water that will spill out. There are videos on how to clean this on youtube "Whirlpool Duet Water Pump Drain Catch". I believe this will solve the problem.

Burning smell and rattle sound


The rubber drive belt is burning up most likely cause by bearing going. The bearings are your ratteling sound and the burning smell is the rubber belt dragging.

The rubber belt is worn and slipping under load. (like a fan belt)
There could also be something caught in the belt or pulleys; clear it out and it should work.
If worn, replace belt soon...


Hope this helps!

Terrible mildew type smell


Water forms in the Bellows it is a rubber boot between the door the drum.. clean this out real well ..To prevent this in the future leave the door cracked open when you are done using the machine to allow it to dry out.
