Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
HI, I have a Whirlpool LSQ9520LQ0 washer that intermittently spins slowly or not at all at the spin cycle. There usually is an electrical - burning smell associated with this, but some times it spins fine. This has been going on for a week and is becoming more frequent as time goes one. Any suggestions.
I would check the coupler between the motor & transmission, the clutch , the brake . Check for clothing under the drum stopping the drum from turning this could cause the slow spin too. Hope this helps good luck

Yes I happens to work a lot with this type of machines. Normally when the spin is too slow the problem rises form a week voltage, motor winding too week for the velocity. I means that the winding in the motor might have gotten burn and weakened the winding to the point where when the motor ask for more voltage to spins the housing the winding heat up. That is why you smell as something burning. The system in this type of machines is not complex but tedious. If everything else work in the machine then it is the motor.

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.
