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

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not go into rinse or spin cycle. Motor runs and agitates during wash cycle properly. This problem occurrs on all wash cycles.


The problem is most likely with the lid switch. This washer can fill and agitate with the lid up or down but will only drain and spin with the lid down. If the lid switch breaks the washer does not know that the lid is down so it will not run.

The part number for your model is 8054980 and runs about $20.00, it is shown in the image on this link below as part 11.

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

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer and it went throught a wash cycle and then stopped before the water drained and there was a strong smell of something over heating. I've check the motor and it...


I have to lean on the top of the washer to get it to go. Is there a switch near the top of the washer that I can replace to solve the problem? How do I get to the switch?

MY WHIRLPOOL LAUNDRY MACHINE WILL NOT AGITATE


If it just fills and stops dead then its probably the door switch.If it fills and you hear the motor start and it makes a horrible noise then its probably the coupling between the motor and transmission. Theres also a slight chance its a stripped agitator spline
