    Might be a condenser fan motor that has shorted out. Does the compressor run and then shut off?

When dryer running there is a burning smell


Clean the lint trap and make sure you have good fan operation. Check your outside vent for good air flow. Could your burning smell be electrical wiring? Does it smell like plastic burning or lint burning?
These are things one needs to know in order to locate the trouble.

Check to see if the sensor in the freezer compartment is encased in ice. If so, do a complete defrost and restart the unit. Another possibility is a bad thermostat and/or sensor.

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

Whirpool GS6SHAXLB03 Refrigerator or freezer do not cool.


This sounds like it's out of freon. Not just low but out. That clicking noise is a thermal overload shutting down the compressor. If you continue let it just click away it will burn this overload out and the compressor will have to be replaced. If the refrigerator just started doing this suddenly it could be that the compressor is locked up. If it has external capacitors either the start or run capacitor could be bad. If the capacitors are good then you could try a hard start kit to try to unlock the compressor.

Whirlpool 24" built-in GU1200XTLBO dishwasher electrical smell


This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

Fridge freezer over heating and is not cooling fridge section


It is normal for the middle strip to be hot. Did you check the temp setting in the fridge section?
Also - you might check for blockage in the bottom. Excessive dirt/dog hair can block the air flow.
Good luck

Smells like burned


Since power outages aren't always polite and absolute, your fridge may have been subjected to low line voltages for an extended time and gee, Whirlpool still hasn't figured out how to protect their product from this kind of damage. We lost one the same way years ago in CA; we came home after being gone for hours, smelled the fridge, checked the line voltage which was wandering around 25 volts +- ~2 volts. Enough to burn the compressor windings but not enough to start it.
In that case, the electric company paid for the compressor replacement on our two-year-old Whirlpool. If you can dig up anyone who was noting the line voltage, maybe you can file a claim with your utility.

Whirlpool GC5SHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator burning smell


How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.
