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..

Will not spin and has a burning rubber smell


sounds like a loose belt, or worse, a stuck pulley..

tip the unit back about 30 degrees, with power off, and unplugged, and inspect the belt..I suggest something solid to hold it up(not your hand or someone elses)...and see if you have free play there, or it's frozen

My Whirlpool Toploader washer model LSR8233JO1 stops at rinse cycle after draining. I have to manually advance it to the spin cycle and sometimes it won't spin.


Dawntm,
It is possible that you have a timer issue since you say you are having to manually advance the timer. There is a small motor mounted on the timer that normally advances the timer and for some reason, possibly a burned contact, it is not advancing from that point. You might need to call in a repair tech. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool washer stopped spinning...then started back, but it smells bad like burning rubber?


An overheating motor can switch itself off. When it cools it will restart. And overheat again.....If the motor is hot to touch (unplugged, of course) That would verify the problem. Good luck......Nomess

Whirlpool top loader won't spin


If you are lucky you need a set of clutches about $45. If you are unlucky you would need a transmission.

Since it spins after you help it, I am guessing clutches.

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
