Whilpool washer Model # LXR9445JQO During wash cycle the motor stopped working, became hot (you could smell it). Now the motor just hums and starts to get hot, you can't turn the agitator or basket by hand. It's as if it's in lockdown mode.

STOP trying to run the washer you will burn it up!!
You need to remove the agitater and make sure nothing is tangled around the shaft. If there isn't anything tangled you will need to do surgery on your washer. You will need to remove the back access panel and remove the lines from the water pump on the back "one going in and one coming out" pull the pump off the shaft and make sure that it spins freely. Hopefully the motor isn't burned up to bad from trying to run it!! have a GREAT day!

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

You say washer fills and then you say no water is entering the washer?? Burning smell is most likely motor overheating due to maybe something stuck in drain Pump.

How do we clean with this machine .


Is this a front-load washer or top load?

Is the machine operating properly, or are your clothes getting a musty smell?

The musty smell has a few solutions, One may work but probably a combination of all will work best.


Immediately move wet clothes to the dryer, do not let them sit in the washer for a long time.
If your clothes smell, put mouthwash with your clothes directly in the tub during the wash cycle (this will not stain your clothes)
leave the door open when not in use (lets it dry out)
If the washer smells, use bleach and hot water in an empty cycle once in a while (kills just about every kind of bacteria or mold which may be causing the smell)
Use washing machine cleaner once in a while(can be found at your local grocery store isle next to detergent)
Dry your clothes completely, damp clothes can start to smell again.

If you are looking for a new washer, try to find a newer model that features a stainless steel tub with silver impregnation. The silver is a natural disinfectant.

Mid-cycle my washing machine stopped working.


Could be one of three issues, timer, capacitor, or the most like canidate the motor assm. Usually 90% of the time, its that motor. Those motors are pretty expensive (part number 389248) and you need to replace motor coupler (part number 285753A) when you change it.

Washer won't agitate or spin out.


Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

Burning rubber smell followed by a hum and the washer stopped


Hi, there was some sort of gear trauma inside the gear case that locked up all rotation during full motion. I'm sure this destroyed the motor and all the windings inside the motor. the clutch was damaged as well. you may have to replace the entire drive assembly and motor. if you have a warranty, im sure this will be covered if the warrenty is still good.
