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)

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and
is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is
important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the
identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has
leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the
underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here.
In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the
house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside.
Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose
on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the
drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can
leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this
will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
