Question about Amana LW8203
My top-load washing machine produces a burnt rubber smell. I believe the problem has been there for some time, but I thought it was something else. It has progressively gotten worse over the last three months. I believe our machine is over 20 yrs old.
The machine still performs well otherwise; it cleans and spins normally. I had a problem a few months ago with oil stains on my clothes coming out of the washer, but that hasn't been an issue for awhile.
I need to know what possible root causes could produce the smell and how to verify them. My husband and I are pretty handy, but we haven't tackled a washing machine before.
Your problem is probably the coupling that ataches the motor to the transmission , take the skirt of the washer off , take the motor off and you going to see the rubber coupling if is bad just change it , cheap part
