Question about Danby DWM99W Top Load Washer

Washer Won't spin & smells burning when it goes on spin

I have a Danby Top Load Portable Automatic Washing Machine--------DWM99W. It washes fine, but when it gets to the spin cycle, it won't spin. Sometimes it will cut in for a second or two and then that will be it. It will just drain out the water but no spinning. I can also smell a burning smell, whenever it cuts in for a second or two. The drum never spins around. I've also noticed that only one of the pulleys that supposed to spin the belt around is going. Not sure if that is how it supposed to be or not. I have replaced the belt, but it still isn't working. Could you please suggest to me how to solve this problem??

Hi there.I think it could be that when the belt was changed the bolt wasnt tightened onto the flat side of the spindle.I am talking about the small pulley that comes off to replace the belt.It has one flat side in which the bolt needs to be otherwise it might just spin because the laundry weight. Quick question I have this machine and it needs a replacement belt.I cant find one anywhere!!!!Where were you able to find one???? Good Luck

SOURCE: danby washing machine noisy only during spin cycle

hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

I need belt for Danby portable washer , model no. DWM99W. Thank you! Natasha


You need to search appliance repair and find a local appliance repair company near you. Tell them the model number and they can look the part up for you and order it if they dont have it in stock. Then you can pick it up directly from them.

My washing machine stopped spinning! what should i be looking at to fix it???


The door switch is usually the problem. If it fails the washer will not spin or wash correctly. Have this replaced and that should take care of the problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Won't wash


I didn't realize that you have to let the faucet run the entire duration of the wash cycle. But that was the problem.

Danby DWM99W doesn't agitate properly


Under the agitator, there is a plastic wheel with groove that goes on the metal shaft that is shaking the agitator to wash ur clother. On my machine, the plastic grooves are not there anymore, probably the effect of the cheap plastic rubbing on metal and that is why the agitator is not turning. Porely designed or maybe good design to make you spen money on fixing it. Just change the plastic wheel with a new one and it will start washing again.  Good luck.
