Washing machine burning smell

I have an Indesit WIXE 127 (uk) that has over the last couple of washes started to fill the room with a burning rubber type smell! Have taken the back off and the belt to me looks fine although im no expert, the machine is comming up 6 years old other than this it works however i feel something must be going wrong and would like to put it righr before it fails!!

SOURCE: burning rubber

You have a broken motor coupling, while you are down to the pump check for something jamming the pump,..
Please follow the procedure...
First unplug the washer and turn off the water. If you have a shop vac take the drain hose out of the drain,and through the drain hose vacuum the water out of your washer. If you don't have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps . Then facing the washer locate the two screws. They will either be in the front or rear of the control panel and back them out far as you can. Once you have done that pull the control panel slightly forward, and tilt it back on the hinges. Now unplug the lid switch wire but don't forget to plug it back when your done. Next locate at the rear of the washer body the two gold clips then push forward, and take careful note of how they fit. Then pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer body forward at 45 degree angel and walk forward with the body, and set it down. Now you will see the white pump and motor assembly. You should see two clips holding the pump to the motor pop them off, and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Now if you fell the need to remove the pump use the radiator hose clamp. take them and clamp the hose coming from the tub but its not necessary for the repair. Next disconnect the wiring harness from the motor (note the position of the harness for reassembly). Remove the two 5/16 inch screws from the motor clamps and pop the clamps off. Once that is complete, remove the motor put the new coupling on the motor and transmission shaft.
Thanks for contacting

Pull the back panel off and look at he drive belt. My pully nut loosened up and caused extreme vibration (more than usual). The pulley is aluminum and it rounded out the center hole of the pulley. The belt finally came off. I replaced the pulley and belt.

Indestit wixe 127 is leaking water from under the machine and sound like an aeroplane when spinning ??

The only way you can find out where the leak is coming from is by removing the back and putting water in it. Using a torch try to see where it is leaking from. TBH its usually the door boot (the rubber seal around the inside of the door). As for the noise.... Open the door and take hold of the shiny part of the drum inside. (Just that bit). Try moving it up and down. If there is any play in it and it rocks a little that is your bearings going and can be an expensive repair. Hope that helps.

Wixe 127 how do you get max spin 1200 on spin cycle can only get 800 down to off?

It can actually depend on the programme you have selected.
You have to select a programme that will accept a 1200 spin, as not all programmes do.
Hope this helps.
