Could be that the belt is rubbing or that the heater is burning the cables It is best to use a good observation lamp , switch off the machine, remove the covers and go by the smell to the suspected area.

The belt is broken and needs to be checked for any other part that has failed causing the belt to burn.

If you have well water, Check your "Annode" Rods in the Hot Water Heater. Had mine do this. I had to Replace the Whole thing as it built up to much Contaminents from the "Hard" Water.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Overloaded washer, smelled burning. Washer works

On this machine, you most likely just burned the drive belt. The old dependable care transmission design was pretty hard to kill, so just get yourself a new set of drive belts. Very easy to replace/install. You can just tip the machine back to access them. There is a lip on the bottom of the front panel that will hide the pump belt but enough room above it to unwind it off the pulleys. If you want, the front panel can be removed, early models used two phillips head screws to hold the front on or later versions used two clips on the bottom that you can release with a putty knife. Pull the bottom of the front panel forward to un-clip the top and away you go.
Good luck!

Dryer part, smells burnt and is extremely loud


If you notice a burningsmell in your washing machine, the cause could be any number of things. Regardless, this is one smell you shouldn't ignore. It's important to quickly diagnose the problem and find the solution.
The "Burning Belt" Smell

Older, top-loading washing machines use a belt drive to transport energy from the motor to the transmission and pump. The belt can prevent costly repairs to the motor or transmission by slipping, stretching, or breaking if there is a malfunction in the machine. If the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning "rubber" smell.

The solution is actually quite simple: you need to replace the drive belt on your washing machine. You can call a repairperson or, if your washer is under warranty, the manufacturer. If you or someone you know is handy, you can replace the belt yourself. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer.

Most new washing machine models are "direct drive." This means they do not use a belt. The motor is directly connected to the transmission. If you have a direct drive machine and your washer smells like it is burning, read on.
Electrical Problems

If your washer smells and you have a direct drive machine, it may be the motor, transmission, or both. If these are shot on your washing machine, the result may be an electrical burning smell. Both are necessary to run your washing machine and can be costly to repair. The first thing to do if you notice an "electrical" smell in your washing machine and not a "rubber" burning smell, is to unplug the machine and call the manufacturer or a repairperson.

An electrical burning smell may also be caused by a water leak coming into contact with electrical wiring. Both are major concerns and should be addressed immediately. A water leak can cause structural damage in your home and can short out the electrical wiring in your washer and cause additional damage to the machine.
Other Causes

Another more likely cause of a burning smell in your washer is overloading. Adding too many clothes to your washing machine can stress the motor or transmission, causing them to overheat or malfunction and emit a burning smell. For top load washers, overloading can cause the agitator to freeze or malfunction, stressing the drive belt and causing friction, which could emit a burning rubber smell.

To prevent overloading, know the size of your washer. They are measured in cubic feet. In addition, know how many towels, pants, shirts, and other items you can safely load. When it doubt, do smaller loads. Not only will this prevent overstressing the machine, it will also ensure clothes are thoroughly cleaned and rinsed.

Burning smell wont work


If it is a burning rubber smell, the drive belt from the motor to the transmission may have failed. Remove the rear panel to access (you may have to remove the top first-- push in on the two front corners with a thin putty knife and release two spring clips ). Make sure the transmission pulley turns freely before repair. Hope this helps!

My kenmore 70 series top loading machine will not drain and go into the rinse cycle what part needs to be replaced?


CHECK THE LID SWITCH, AND CHECK THE TIMER FOR A BURNED SMELL. IF SMELL PROBABLY TIMER. SOME WASHERS WOULD NOT GO INTO SPIN WITHOUT LID CLOSED, BUT WOULD AGITATE.

After washing with my whirpool duet my wash smells sour. Any idea?


Try using Affresh washer tablets. This kills the smell in front load washer. You can order this online or at a local parts store. Works great. I use it on all the front load washers that i sell in my store.
