Yes it could be the belt if it is slipping it will smell with a little bit rubber burning. u can check the pulley on the motor to make sure it is not loose.

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.

The reason for the hot smell must be investigated. If it is the motor that is getting hot it won't be a new motor for very long. The hot smell might be coming from a drive belt or a clutch and there could be a brake mechanism that is binding or not fully releasing.

Clearly the next step is to closely observe the operation of the mechanical parts...

When washer is spinning it smells like something is burning


A burning smell means you have some slipping of the drive belt. I think your belt needs to be replaced. Another reason may be a binding in the tub. possibly a seized tub bearing. The only way to know is to take off the access cover at the back of the washer and visually inspect it first. you can spin the tub by hand from the back and this will give you an idea of what is binding.

Washer does not spin, has a burning smell. took off front panel. motor pulley feels hot, so does belt. replaced belt 6/09. only wash one load per week. where is the burning smell coming from?


This sounds like a frigidaire washer. If it is, the belt must be the original equipment manufacturers belt. ANY other belt will just slip and burn. The fact that the pulley and the belt were both hot tells me that either the belt is the issue or your main tub bearing is starting to seize.

The washer will go into final spin, it seems to be


Well there could be few things causing the smell and the tub not turning. Its possible something is restricting the tub from turning and the motor is over heating. It is also possible that the transmission has a broken gear and you are smelling something from it getting hot inside. Or you could have a bad belt or coupling. Also the water pump could be stopped up. Its hard to tell because there are so many different types of washers and Im not sure which one you have I assume it is a whirlpool late model.

Won't spin on spin cycle, smells of something burning.


sounds like the belt or the tub bearings are shot. It is likely that the motor is spinning and the tub is not, causing the belt to burn.
