Thank you, the belt was to loose and Whirlpool has replaced it. They actually changed the material they are using for the belt. Hopefully now it will not get worn out so fast.

I have whirlpool lsq9110pw2 washing machine. During the spin cycle, there is a clicking sound, and eventually you can smell and see smoke. I have replaced the motor couplings and it still does the same...

When it is spinning open the lid and see if the spinning stops or if it is relational to the spinning of the drum. It sounds like either the clutch is bad or the brake shoes are rubbing or maybe something is stuck between the drum and the tank wall.

LG wm2016cw smells when spinning fast. I opened the top but do not visually see any damage or smell it. When I open the door, I can smell something was rubbing. Took off the door gasket and it seems fine....

It sounds as though the drum may have dropped slightly and is rubbing against the seal. This normally occurs when either the top springs have stretched slightly (visually it's not noticeable) or the bearings are worn. Hopefully it's the former, as the springs are replaceable at little cost and can be done as a DIY project. The best way to see if it is the drum, is to close the door and look through the door window. The drum should appear central to the window. There will be online guides on how to change your particular model springs, as they are all slightly different. The only other possibility is that the drive belt at the rear of the machine is wearing out, or rubbing against something.

Inglis dryer making thumping sound when drying

is the unit level, open the dryer try moving the drum around, see if the drum loose, there mite something in the machine that got caught on the drum some how and when it goes around it bangs,
you mite try spinning the dryer without turning it on and listen to the drum and see if you can hear any thing hitting the drum or what is make those load sounds. if you cannot turn the drum manually you mite bribe a guy or friend to check it out for a beer or glass of wine, and if they down drink bake some cookies.

There is only two things that I can think of 1: The bearings are going or 2: something has got under the door seal and is in between the metal drum and the plastic cover (around the drum). Could be something like a coin or even a bra wire.

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button

if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone, if you hold the the drum and can feel up and movement or it sounds noisy or rough when you turn it by hand then it is definately bearings gone.
Unless you know what you are doing ,I would not recommend a D.I.Y. repair.
