Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Two different times my wife has said that are performa washer was smoking and smelled like burnt plastic. boyh times i have looked it over and cant find any problem. we turn it back on after sittin awhile and it seems to work fine but this concerns me any help would greatly appriciated
It could be the pump or the motor overheating.
Remove rear panel, and run washer through a rinse and spin cycle.
After it has finished, unplug the washer, and feel the pump and the motor, they should be relatively cool to the touch.
If either the motor or pump feel hot, then that is probably the cause of the problem.
Also check for a worn or slipping drive belt.
Please rate my fixya solution.
