Question about Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore washing machine, and earlier I was trying to wash a fairly large pillow. Once the pillow became wet and the machine was in the spin cycle, it started banging around and spinning real fast back and forth because it was too heavy. After I heard and ended it, I opened it up and could smell a faint burning scent, like plastic burning or something. Is this something I should be concerned about, or am I just being too paranoid?
I would let it sit for an hour. more than likley what happened was the motor overheated a little because it was trying to spin in an off balance situation. give it a break for a while the next load that you do keep an eye on it and see if you smell anything if you do then you have a problem. But 99% it is ok.
