The belt may have shifted off the pulleys. Sort of like a chain falling off of a bicycle. You will need to check and then change the belt. That is the easiest problem. Let me know if it's not that, then i could get into more complicated things.

LG WM4070H front load direct drive washing machine occasionally emitting burning rubber smell.

Sanitary cycle uses calrod heating element inside of washer to heat water. I suspect that is where smell is coming from. If you infrequently use sanitary, and if you use fabric softener and/or liquid detergent, then a built up on the calrod unit can happen. When used, the buildup can produce odors as you describe.

Washer fills but won't agitate or spin

Try making sure the belts are actually on the drum, probably have to turn upside down. Sounds silly but a lot of simple things are missed.

The washer fills and agitates, and spins, but when it is stopping the spin cycle it makes a really loud groaning noise and my tenant says there is a rubber smell.

The brake shoes are not grabbing like they should, the rubber smell is the motor coupling. This is putting a load on that coupling and will soon cause it to fail.

There was a rubber smell, now washer won't spin.

It is possible that the bearings supporting the drum have seized

Was the machine noisy before it stopped?

If there is tension on the belts and the drum is locked then the motor will spin and burn the belts.

Whirlpool noise

Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry

Own a Maytag Washing Machine Model No. LAT9416AAE I overloaded with a extra large comforter. I started the cylce and went upstairs to my room leaving it unattended. My parents were down stairs With it, and...

there is a thermal overload protector in the motor. After the motor cools it should restart. There is an off balance switch that might have been tripped when pulling out the comforter or when bailing out the water. As for the belts, tip the machine back and you will see the belts underneath the washer. Very easy to change and you'll see what I mean when you see the belts. That should solve your problem. AND DON'T OVERLOAD THE WASHER AGAIN.

Kenmore 24642 Top Load Washer Problem

If this is a top load washer, more than likely you have a broken motor coupler.  Be sure the unit is unplugged before starting any repair.  You have to remove the console hold down screws (may have to remove the console cover caps to get to them, or they may be in the back).  Pull the console towards you then up and fold over the top of the washer.  You will see 2 gold colored clips, pop them out, then remove the lid switch wire harness plug.  Fold the cabinet top towards you, and remove the cabinet.  You will see the pump lower center.  Remove the two clips, and swing the pump out of the way.  Unplug the motor wiring harness.  Remove the two clip hold down screws, then unclip the motor hold down brackets.  The motor will now fall (be sure to hold securely) and pull motor out.  You will see the motor coupler on the end of the motor, a round rubber coupler, and another drive coupler in the hole on the transmission.  You will see the prongs on the plastic drive parts that go into that rubber part.  Most of the time, these will break off.  Remove everything, then reinstall (be sure to drive the couplers flush with the shafts), line up motor/rubber/transmission shafts, and reinstall everything.  Let me know if you need further help or information.  Part number for motor coupler is 285753A (Sears, APW, FSP, Whirlpool #'s).  You can also usually find these on ebay, but they arent that expensive (maybe $10 to $15).  Good Luck!!!!   Jim
