Washer won't spin anymore

The last time I used it, there was a smell of burnt rubber. My clother were still soaked. It also made some strange noises before it stopped working.

    Thanks Amigaman! Will those parts cost a lo of money? That transmission sounds expensive. How difficult would it be to complete this repair?

Was it getting loud in spin prior to this?
If so, based on past experience with this model, I would say you need at least a triple lip seal, belt and possibly a transmission.

    The seal and the transmission repair require special tools. Both repairs are expensive. Experience with this machine is that you might be better off replacing.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

2001ford escape burning rubber smell and noise


Check the rear upper strut towers. These are notorious for rusting out, and causing the tire to hit the inner fender well. To my knowledge, no recall on this, but I've fixed a few with a rear quarter panel replacement from rock auto. You wouldn't notice it much on the rear of the vehicle. Smell the rear fender wells for burnt rubber odor.

2001 ford escape has horrible rubber smell and bad noise


Remove the drive belt on the alternator and see if you can spin the pulley freely. Check for bearing noise or knocks in the alternator . If it is hard to turn then replace the alternator . While the belt is off check all other units and pulleys to see if they turn freely. Now check the drive belt and smell it If it smells of burnt rubber then replace it as it is what the smell is all about.

Low humming noise and burnt plastic smell coming from 1990 acura integra


Jennifer what type of timing belt does your engine use ?
Is it Nylon ? When was the last time you had it changed ?
Burning plastic smell may be being caused by the timing belt bearing runners seizing and the belt is getting hot .
If the belt is due to snap you could cause a lot of damage to the engine if it breaks.
Might be worth getting a mechanics advice on this as a possible cause

I have a LG front loading direct drive washing machine (WM1812CW) that is 5 years old that is making a loud knocking noise during the spin cycle and is emitting a burnt smell after the cycle ends. ...


It seems you need to have a new sealing rubber fitted. IN THE MEANTIME, if the knocking happens again when the spin starts, stop the machine, let the washing drop to rest, and then start it again, the re-positioning of the fabric inside the drum should even out. Also, do not load with say.. only towels, that way the weight is one sided and will make the drum spin in an uneven way.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.
