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.

The water pump has cloth built up inside causing the impeller to shift. The shim that holds the pulley on to slipped and was causing rattling until it eventually jammed up completely. I removed the water pump cleaned the inside out and realigned the impeller and pulley assy. no parts needed.

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

Samsung vcu366 making loud noise but picks up


what does the really loud noise sound like? Is it a loud, whining sound? if so, the motor may be getting ready to go out. Also check that the belt isn't stuck-though you would smell burning rubber if that were the case.

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

Something is moving around inside the vacuum (Dirt Devil Featherlite), sounds like plastic ou metal just rattling around and if left on too long it smell like burning. Can it be fixed?


if it smells like electrical burning or not like rubber then its probably your motor bearings making all the noise which means its not worth repairing.

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 noise and smell of rubber over heating


sounds like you have something stuck in the beater bar/roller and the belt is slipping. You're probably going to have to take it out and replace the belt. Also check for wads in the passages.
