A little bit of plastic broke off from the rim of the machine and I have a feeling it is caught down the bottom of the spinner stopping it from spinning.... how do I get to that part of the machine? Maybe it just needs a good clean out... how do I do that also?

Tub bearings get worse, if they faulty, the machine would be noisy and getting louder. Sudden burning smells usually mean an electrical failure of a component but if this has stopped and the machine is working properly, its possible that something has got caught up in the rim of the tub or gasket area and during spin it has got "burnt" by being dragged around the edge. Have a close look at your clothes that were washed on that day for signs of burning or damage and around the top at leading edges of the tub for signs of melting or damage.
Hi, I will try to give you some general tips. If you wash things that can not spread out evenly inside the drum, like mats pillows etc. Disable the high spin and drip dry your items or squeeze out the water by hand.
If the drum swings from side to side when rotating, one of the shock-absorbers inside the machine may be worn out, broke or loose.
If you open the lid, grab the drum and move it a bit back and forth and side to side (not rotating) it should not swing easily but with a damped resistance when the absorbers are ok.
An other experience I have made is the balancing of the feet. I had a new machine that alway moved around during the high spin, even thou I have made an extra flat surface for it to stand on. I could recognize a bumping noise from the feet.
When I pressed down the left or the right front corner with my hand a little, the bumping stopped. Then I adjusted the corresponding foot down and fine tuned it until the bumping disappeared while spinning.
Since then my machine has not moved an other mm (= 1/25").
So equal down force from the feet and no play under any of them is essential to deep it from moving around.
Hope this can help you too.
This is simply a problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. Your repeat of the rinse/spin cycle is giving it extra empty time and then the spin works OK. You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not sure which with the model you mention) there is either a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) or, you will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).
when you replaced the clutch did you look at the bottom of your basket drive tube to see if it was worn down,also the white plastic brake release arm could have the 2 little lineup pins broken off, or your drive block could be worn out,it is under your agitator,,,,,i found out on my machine that the bottom of the basket drive tube has a brass t post and the thrust washer had worn it off completely,the clip that holds the brake release arm fell off and broke those 2 little fingers off the arm,,,,,,i had to buy a used basket drive tube installed it with a new clutch and now the spin cycle works fine !! give it a good look at
On this particular model you have to go thru the top section of the pump. Remove spray are and using torx crew driver remove all the upper section to get to the piece of plastic. Don't worry you can do this and not cause any leaks.
Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean
that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that
protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the
rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you
smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad
drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is
alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive
gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand,
indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught
between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch
problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch,
but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different
sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will
agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the
slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate
remove plastic clamp that holds seal to cabinet and peel seal off cabinet.
the inside of the seal is held onto the tub with a circular spring. push seal down (needs a bit of force), pull outwards and seal will come away from tub.
lubricate the slot in the seal that fits onto the rim of the tub with washing up fluid.
starting at the top, push the first little bit of the slot in the seal onto the rim of the tub.#
working in both directions, push the slot onto the rim until completely on. this is a knack so be patient.
the circular spring fits into a slot on the outside of the seal. this is quite difficult to get into place and extra pair of hands will help.
fit seal onto cabinet - this is easy - and refit plastic clamp
test for leaks on wash cycle as water level is higher
motor brushes are worn and nead to be replaced easy job if you turn washer on to its side remove the 2 screws at the bottom and take off the plastic panel you can see the motor and the brushes are red plastic bits remove them and replace with new ones that should sort out the problem and cost about £25.00 to do .
