SOURCE: washing machine rumbles when spinning

it needs to be leveled. most units are self leveling meaning they sit evenly. if yours in on uneven ground make sure you get it onto a flatter spot. should help.

GE front load washer model number WBVH6240HWW SERIAL NUMBER RM200099T spins freely by hand but started smoking and belt behind looks fine. What could be the problem. Before the smoke started when spin...


Hmm... Kind of difficult to say for sure. Does your inner spin basket wiggle up and down? If so, you've got a main bearing going. Also, put it in a spin cycle for a minute or so and then try smelling the windings on your main motor. If they smell burnt, you'll need to replace the main motor. Also, one last thought, check to see if your drain pump overheats. I say this because the drain pump is active during the spin cycle and a bad drain pump can sound extremely noisy and start overheating.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Smoke coming from inside drum after spin cycle


The noise would possibly indicate that your drum bearings are on their way out, this would more than likely mean a new spider assembly, tripod in shape and houses the bearings through the drum, as well. They come in kits or bearing assembly alone for various prices, usually around 40 pounds for the kit but it would be a very difficult job if you are not familiar with this type of work, bearing extractor kits are best used but more cost, drum seals may also be needed.

Washer make noise doing spin cycle smell smoke make the power cord warm to touch


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Joe. Usually, if a washer makes noises during spinning, it means the drive basket is broken. Make sure your pulley's are not sticking and rubbing the belt. This causes the basket to be unstable during the spin cycle. As far as the smell of smoke, try checking the belt and make sure it is not worn or loose. Inspect the motor to check for noises, grinding, or smoke. Your transmission may be burning up. Usually, the cord will remain warm, but not hot. The washer may be working extra if a belt is sticking or during the spinning process. If you have any other questions Joe, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

Washer smokes during rinse cycle. With clothes out of it, only the rinse cycle works. Breaker pops when trying to run a cycle with clothes in it. Water also does not drain


1. This could be due to a belt that is loose or if this is a "direct drive" motor then the bearings are gone and the motor need replacement.
2. There could be leakage ( water) from the pump hose spaying the motor and causing vapor.
3. There may be a exposed wire from vibration rub during the "spin" cycle and is grounding against the enclosure.
These are just a few scenarios that could be.
The unit will have to be open by a trained technician to give full disclosure of this issue.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

Amana dlw330 washer belt urned & broke again


Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)

Washing machine belt won't move


You probably have bad spin tube bearings. Look above transmission for a water leak or evidence of one.
