Question about Miele Washing Machines
My 12 year old Miele washing machine (W485) makes the most terrible loud noise when spinning and there is a strong smell of burning. Will it be worth having it fixed or more cost effective for me to buy a new washing machine?

Yes you either have a whirlpool or kenmore...since you didnt mention the make I guessed :) It sounds like you have a bad coupling, have included a link giving you instructions for replacing the coupling and a link where you can buy the coupling.
p.s you don't actually have to remove the cabinet, the motor, pump and coupling can be accessed by tilting the machine back and wedging something under it so it does not fall on you while your working on it.
you can purchase the part from:
Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 model and the tub bearing was the problem with the same symptoms you have provided. I purchased a replacement (genuine Maytag) outer tub in 2007 and that fixed the problem. The old bearing was pulverized. The tub was 239.65. I got the parts from "Repairclinic.com>" I also replaced the door boot for 57.80. Today my spin/agitation cycles quit! The belt is ok but I haven't looked beyond that.

Sounds loike the main drum bearings have failed.
Spin the drum by hand from the front, and if it feels rough, or is rumbling or grating, then the main bearigs have failed.
Quite an expensive repair, unless it is covered by the Hotpoint 5 year parts guarantee, check with Hotpoint.
