Your washing machine has a belt on a pulley and that belt is being stretched. That belt is attached to a motor that turns your laundry tub. Your washer if out of balance will shake and rattle and the tub might be locked in place and the motor is forcing the belt to turn but the tub is not turning. If you are not mechanically inclined call a washer service repair man.

Was making a loud noise and then stopped working also could smell rubber burn


Hello Todd, thank you for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire washer made a loud noise then stopped working and you also smelled burning rubber. This could be a possible issue with your moto, belt, or pulley. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues a technician would be able to pinpoint the problem without multiple part purchases. A technician will have the appropriate tools needed to verify which component may need to be replaced. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My magic chef washing machine makes a loud grinding/rubbing noise when agitating. Everything still washes and no smell of burning rubber, etc.


Stop the making if you can. Be sure something is wrong. When the machine is empty, ask a technician to check what is wrong. If it is an old machine, start saving for a new one and forget the tech.

Makes a loud noise like a grinding noise then smokes comes out and it smells like burning rubber? When I take the (rod) brush off with the belt then run the vacuum there is no more noise? Please help me...


Your belt is worn and stretched and so it is slipping on the motor drive shaft. That is why it is noisy and smells like burning rubber. You simply need to replace the belt. You can get replacement belts here:

Loud rattling noise and burning rubber smell


I'll bet the machine uses a belt drive, and the belt is probably worn, slipping, and chipped. The slipping makes it hot which makes the burning smell, and the rattling is the spring-loaded tensioner pulley banging against its limit because it hits the damaged part of the belt every time it comes around. Before you look anywhere for a new belt, take my advice and look in an autoparts store first. We went everywhere to find a belt for my friend's machine, which was expensive and would have to be ordered, then we got one at autozone for $5. You can probably just take off the front of the machine to open it but you might have to move or disconnect the motor from the machine to get the belt free.

WASHER STARTS MAKING LOUD NOISES WHEN SPINNING SOUNDS LIKE IT IS OFF BALANCE BUT NOT. ALSO FAINT SMELL OF BURNT RUBBER.


The washing machine will do this if the load is unbalanced. Usually due to either an excessively heavy and/or large load. The burning rubber smell is just the drive belt dealing with the imbalance. Often the washing machine will self-balance itself, but it's a good idea to open the lid and re-distribute the load. Or remove some stuff if it seems too heavy.
