Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Lg wd8050fh Hi, after completing a wash cycle I could smell burning rubber or parts and on opening the door, smoke came out. There was also a small puddle of water under the machine. I haven't tried turning it on, so unsure if it still works. Any idea? Thanks. Irena.

This could be the pump or valve. You need to take the bottom kick panel off under the door and see if you can tell where the water is leaking. Check the drain filter, there should be a removeable drain cap.

Open your wall faucet to full pressure to stop the drip. If this does not work simply change the inlet valve of the machine which is at the top, where the water enters the machine. You can do it yourself. And rate me plz if helped.

SOURCE: washing machine spins slowly and smells of burning rubber

The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.

SOURCE: Washer was pouring out smoke and smelled liked burnt rubber

You most likelyhave burned a drive belt. Could be a couple things. If the machine was loaded to the max and a bit more, it is possible that a small article of clothes may have been flung into the outer tub and into the pump... this can freeze it up and the motor will keep trying to turn the belt against a frozen pulley.
You'll need to open the machine and check the pump for blockage and change the belt... let us know if we can help with procedures..

LG WM4070H front load direct drive washing machine occasionally emitting burning rubber smell.


Sanitary cycle uses calrod heating element inside of washer to heat water. I suspect that is where smell is coming from. If you infrequently use sanitary, and if you use fabric softener and/or liquid detergent, then a built up on the calrod unit can happen. When used, the buildup can produce odors as you describe.

LG WM 0642 HW Direct Drive Making a thumping sound when spinning and smells like burned rubber. Smoke coming out of durm when front load door was opened.


Hi Paul.
What you're describing is probably the inner drum rubbing on the door seal.
It could be because the rear bearing assembly has collapsed or because the drum is distorted.
Turn the drum slowly by hand and see if the gap between the rim of the drum and the rubber seal stays the same. This will tell you if the drum is 'round' or bent out of shape.
Alternatively, if the drum flops up and down inside the outer drum it would be because of bearing collapse
Either of these situations would require a service visit and parts.

Good luck.

After wash yesterday i opened door and smoke and smell of rubber burning and small amounts of grey rubber in washer


check the inside stainless steel drum isnt moving up and down. use the plastic outer drum as a reference. If its wobbling up and down, then your drum is bad. If it isnt then for some reason, the boot is making contact the drum. I would actually get a tech out to confirm this.

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.


Normally, the last part of any cycle involves using the heater element inside, and at the bottom of, the dishwasher to give dishes a final hot rinse. Possibly some small plastic-type material has become melted and stuck to the element - which will remain hot even after all water is discharged. Hence the smell.
