Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My maytag washer has a burning smell.

I just bought this washer from a friend and he said that he had no problems with it but when I got home and hooked it up and tried to do a load of laundry, half way through I noticed a burning smell so I checked it out and I didnt see anything but after the washer was done, I went in to put the clothes into the dryer and noticed that they were dripping wet. What could the problem be? Please help!!!

What model do you have.?It doesn't sound like it was spinning.A frozen pump would make the belt burn and it would leave some water in the tub .

    This washer if it is around 3-8 years old most likely isn't spinning at all.The brake is probably locking up and if you need more help I'm available & happy to assist you.

Check to see if your water pump is spinning. It could be seized up and the burning smell could be the belt spinning on the seized pulley. Good luck Friend.

Washer has a burning smell and will not drain


the burning you smell is probably your belt. if you change the belt and it still has this problem then your transmition has failed. This is a very comon problem with maytag washers.

Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW burn smell (doesn't appear to be hose)


if you have a maytag neptune washer that ran up until now you got your money's worth,that's the machine that put maytag out of business,if it's smoking and ripping the boot it sounds like the tub bearing is gone and you'll have to replace the washer,if it's load in the spin like marbles are rolling around in it that's the problem,but i wouldn't put a cent into that machine.
