well is it a smell of burning rubber? maybe the belt that turns the drum has got jammed. over time these belts get loose and when a full load of clothes are washed the belt slips creating heat hence the smoke..hope this helps..
You need to replace the belt needed to spin the drum. It sounds to me like you may have been overloading the drum, putting too much stress on the belt. Over time, it has begun to " burn rubber" as it spins, causing smoke, or worst case scenario, the motor that turns the belt is locking up as the drum spins causing friction on the belt.
Hello, Well their are several possible things that can cause that; The transmission pulley did not properly disengage the brakes so in the spin cycle the tub didnt turn to cause the belt to slip and smoke and burn thier is something obstructing the tub from turning on the spin cycle so again the belt slipped and smoked the tub bearing is locked up so once again the belt......
so it may worth a service call to determine what the cause is,surely a belt will be needed but need to know why the belt is burning
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. There are a few things that you can check. First, check your belt. It may have worn or the pulley may be sticking. The belt may be causing the smoke. You might want to check your control board just in case and see if you see any damaged wires. You need to try and see if the washer throws out any error codes. I really don't know what else you could check because there are no symptoms. It could have come from the water pump or the motor drive also.
Hi, There are no adjustments. Make sure the pulley on the idler and the drive pulley are tirning freely. It is possible the transmission is locked up and the belt will not turn properly.
If all the pulleys are free, start the washer in the spin cycle while watching the drive pulley to see if it turns.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.
you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps
sounds like perhaps the trannsmission has locked up and is not spinning freely, therfore the belt is meeting resistance and not turniing.( try turning the trans. pullley( where the bsck of belt is wound)does it turn freely??? try turning the tub from inside does it spin at all??? before i condemn the tranny i would check for article of clothing fallling between the tubs, holding from spinning, also ive seen (nails/screws/bra underwires,etc..) poke through onr of the holes with in the tub abd stuck to the outer tub also preventing the tub from spinning, look closely to all the inner basket holes!!!
