Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer

Kenmore washing machine stops and there is a burning smell

My washing machine will run for one or two loads and then it stops. It produces a burnt rubber smell. After a while it will run again. I checked the coupler and it is fine. The machine is over 20 years old. Could it be the motor?

My LG washer stopped mid-load at spin cycle, how can I fix this?


It sounds like a serious fault if there is no power the fuse has gone or some item has burnt out . You will have to arrange for a service engineer to look at it more closely.

Kenmore washing machine ultra fabric care model #92282800. Stop woking suddenly and smell like burned.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the control panel. There is a good chance you can visually see some damage since you smelled the burnt smell. Check your belt(s) as well. Check to make sure the motor is running. Something inside may have burned up. If you have no power, check these below.

I have a westinghouse super capacity plus commercial washing machine. It spins on some washers and now has a burning smell to it


Unplug it and don't use it will be a burnt wire or the motor burning out there is a safety feature built into it which will cut the motor off after it gets hot so it wont start a fire. You will need a qualified technician come look at it and replace one or both sorry for the problem its giving you. Also if it is the motor they normally run $150 and up...

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.

Washing machine burnt wires?


It could be that the drive belt was slipping and got heated up. Look underneath the machine to see if the belt looks burnt or shredded. There may be small pieces of rubber on the floor under the machine. If the belt is OK then the motor may have overheated (but usually there is an overload switch in it to prevent burning up.)
