Kenmore stylemaster 8525829

I believe the belt is broken. Started a load and once it filled up with water nothing happened. There was a smell of burning rubber so that's why I'm assuming it's the belt. I have taken off the top and front of the machine but am having trboule locating the belt. It looks like it may be inside a metal housing but would like to know for sure before I take it apart. I am trying to at least find a manual but cannot locate one online.

SOURCE: washing machine smells like burning rubber!

sounds like you have a broken motor coupling while your down to the pump check for something jamming the pump here is the procedure First unplug the washer and turn off the water. If you have a shop vac take the drain hose out of the drain,and through the drain hose vacuum the water out of your washer. If you don't have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps . Then facing the washer locate the two screws. They will either be in the front or rear of the control panel and back them out far as you can. Once you have done that pull the control panel slightly forward, and tilt it back on the hinges. Now unplug the lid switch wire but don't forget to plug it back when your done. Next locate at the rear of the washer body the two gold clips then push forward, and take careful note of how they fit. Then pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer body forward at 45 degree angel and walk forward with the body, and set it down. Now you will see the white pump and motor assembly. You should see two clips holding the pump to the motor pop them off, and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Now if you fell the need to remove the pump use the radiator hose clamp. take them and clamp the hose coming from the tub but its not necessary for the repair. Next disconnect the wiring harness from the motor (note the position of the harness for reassembly). Remove the two 5/16 inch screws from the motor clamps and pop the clamps off. Once that is complete, remove the motor put the new coupling on the motor and transmission shaft. I use a socket and a hammer

SOURCE: maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom

The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

SOURCE: Loud banging/thumping during spin cycle on my kenmore front load

this sounds like this could be the bearings,to check for this,open door and with yourhand lift the inner chrome drum and let it fall then lift again and if you feel a knocking sound and a lot of play in it then its the bearings,i know there should be movement in the drum but this will feel more of a knocking.

I've got an old Kenmore Stylemaster 902202B. I overloaded it once, it buzzed, I faintly smelled burning rubber, then I took things out and it kept going just fine. The washer does work perfectly on small...


the old kenmore (whirlpool made) washers had the hardest belt to replace. you can do it if you take your time. belts can be matched at a napa auto parts store if you don't want to order online. www.appliancepartspros.com or www.repairclinic.com should have them. part is #95405

Why does my kenmore washer 110 fill with water but won't wash or spin?


Do you happen to hear a humming noise coming from the machine after the tub fills? This might indicate that the motor is spinning, but the belt that connects the motor to the rest of the machine works is broken. It is located underneath the washer. Tip the washer a bit and have a look. If it's broken, you'll probably find the belt laying on the floor. Take that to an appliance parts store where they can match it up with a new one. Installation is not too difficult. The belt will go around the motor pulley, the transmission pulley, the water pump, and in some cases, a spring-loaded tensioner. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

You need to observe and check after disconnecting the power , touch the motor, the element area or the control panel or the valves/pump.
If you notice any heat on these , it can be the culprit.
You can proceed to remove the suspected part to discover what was the reason for the burning rubber smell.

My kitchenaid washer has a burning smell


Hi, a slipping or severed belt will produce a burned rubber smell. A belt supports the drum and ensures its smooth movement. If it wears, the drum's movements weaken and finally come to an abrupt halt. In addition, a slipped or severed belt usually produces a burned rubber smell. Refer to the washing machine manual to review how to locate the belt. If the belt is no longer around the drum's center, shift the belt back to its original position. If rubber fibers are discernible or cracks are apparent, change out the worn belt for a new one.

Thank you.

Fills with water and then nothing kenmore washer model 23822100 type 111


Top load machines will fill with water while the lid is open. Your problem starts when you close your lid. NOTHING happens. I believe this to be your LID SWITCH . Replace or have replaced and you should be OK. GOOD LUCK.

Won't fill, drain or spin out properly. Error Code od on panel. Sounds as though pump is running but no water drains out. Also, no water runs into machine when it is started.


sounds like you might have a broken belt. If there was a time you might have smelled rubber burning. The belt will stop all the above mentioned.
