THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON ON THE WASHER, ONLY THE OVERLOAD AND THERMAL LIMITER ON THE MOTOR. SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THE MOTOR IS BAD, BUT CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE PULLEYS TURN FREELY ON THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE BEFORE CONDEMNING MOTOR.

I have a maytag model# mav2755aww, I have a burn smell when it's in the spin cycle. yes it is spinning the water is draining ?


Burning odor may be coming from a overheated motor under a heavy spin load.
Before going any further;
1.Make sure the circuit breaker for the machine is working properly and know its location.
2.Have a working fire extinguisher nearby.
3.If a electrical/motor fire starts, you need to turn off breaker power to the washer..Then use the extinguisher to put out any fire.
Try spinning the basket empty and see if the odor still persists if so, you need a new motor ..
If not, you have to think about the weight of the washload that the spin cycle must handle..
If a light load causes the same odor, stop using the machine until you replace the motor and check the transmission for any problems.

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.

Foul water odor after wash


There is always a littlee water left in the sump of a washer after it is emptied. If the washer sits unused for as little as 2 or 3 days it can have that odor. One thing that I do is add about 1/4 cup of ammonia after the washer is full of water. DO NOT USE AMMONIA IF YOU USE BLEACH IN THE SAME WASH!!! IT WILL CAUSE CLORINE GAS TO BE RELEASED!! If bleach was used in the previous cycle it will be ok.

You will need to have it checked by a qualified LG technician to see what is the deal with the burning odor.  And the noise is probably the washer not balanced correctly.
