Question about Kenmore 15864/15862 Top Load Washer
I recently replaced the motor coupling kit, and it is working fine, but now I notice some smell (smoke?) during the end of the wash cycle as the water has completed draining. The smoke seems to come out of the tub when I lift the lid. Everything else seems fine, MDL# 110.28812790
Thanks for your help.
I have a hoover amc121 washer when its done its final spin and the door is open there is smoke comeing out of the drum,im guessing the heater is staying on.it could be a problem with the preasure switch,anyone else got any ideas on this

Do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
