Peace,
ngafm at your service,

Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the belt wore and slipped and broke!
Is there any power to the washer?

How old is the washer?Sounds old.

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.


If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF

SOURCE: whirlpool top loader won't spin

If you are lucky you need a set of clutches about $45. If you are unlucky you would need a transmission.

Since it spins after you help it, I am guessing clutches.

Sounds like a failure in the gear case but the burning smell makes me wonder if you have a problem with the motor. You will need a appliance tech to verify

HI, the motor is failing slowly and, i recommend replacing this damaged motor asap before it starts to over heat and present a fire hazard.

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

Smells like motor is burning. during first wash cycle, washer stopped and there was an electrical burning smell??


YOUR WHIRLPOOL WASHER COULD HAVE A MOTOR PROBLEM, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMETHING HAS GOT CAUGHT IN THE MOTORS WINDINGS AND SHORTED IT OUT. IT YOU CAN STILL HEAR THE MOTOR RUNNING BUT THERE IS NO AGITATION IT COULD BE THAT YOUR DIRECT DRIVE COUPLER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, PART NUMBER IS 285753. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE WASHER IS OVERLOADED AND CAN CAUSE A BURNING SMELL SINCE THIS PART IS RUBBER AND PLASTIC. IF YOUR WASHER IS MAKING ANY SORT OF BANGING NOISE THIS COULD BE THE PROBLEM. YOU CAN CHECK THIS BUT IT DOES INVOLVE REMOVING THE PUMP AND MOTOR. ANOTHER POSSIBLE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS SIMPLY A BURNED CONNECTION ON YOUR UNITS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND IF IT CANNOT BE REPAIRED IT WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED.HOPE THIS HELPS

THANKS

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer went dead during fill cycle


Start with the capacitor. It has a funny smell when they go bad. The motor will smell bad as well when it burns up.

Circuit Breaker Kick and Washer Smell - Whirlpool Top Load


Welcome to FIXYA

sounds like you have a short in the wires and the burning smell is the wires burning from touching ...check the wires and look for any blackness anywhere or if you see smoke anywhere ....

my advice is see if you can find the short before pulgging it back in if not call a repair man could cause a fire

hope this helps you out have a good day:)
