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: washing machine spins slowly and smells of burning rubber

The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.

SOURCE: Washing machine gives off "burning

I would start with the "motor coupler" to see if it is coming apart. Here is a video to show you how to get to it and do the repair if need be.

LG WM2487*M Washer smells like burning rubber in spin cycle


Smells like, I mean sounds like, a belt is burning either from friction caused by a bad bearing, or, a loose belt is slipping on the pully a bit, causing it to heat up from the friction.

Burning smell


Hi just read your posting.Now in my experience on your model of machine when you get a burning smell it is usually the pump.When the machine is draining the water and goes to spin do you get a burning smell then?Please try to look underneath the machine to the front right.You will should see the pump with a red or black fan attached to it.See if has any evidence of corrosion or leaking.Please reply with additional information and I can guide you throe rectifying this fault.

Smell rubber burning when on spin cycle


This sounds like the belt is slipping, which will burn the rubber and give you that smell. Replace the belt and be sure the tension pulley spins easy.
