If you smell burning rubber it's most likely the belt and or the drive pulley. This can all be accessed by removing the bottom panel on the front of the machine.

My resources are having trouble finding a match to that model number but i would say without smelling the smell it's kinda hard to figure out but it's going to be either the belt or motor....sorry i'm not more help i just can't pull up a diagram.

Bad fan blower smell and bad smelling and tasting ice cubes from ice cube maker


If unit has a water dispenser, how does water taste? I've run across bell peppers that will emit a bad smell. Keep in mind 95% of all refrigerators circulate air from freezer to refrigerator side and then back. It continues to circulate air so bad produce from refrigerator side will get into freezer side and ice will absorb smell. First, dump all ice. Then line shelves in refrigerator side with newspaper, that absorb smells. You can even try kitty litter in small cups in refrigerator side. Bell peppers gives off that metallic smell and can take some time to get out of unit. Highly unlikely a motor is bad and you've already changed outside water line.

Smell vacuum


If it is a rubber smell it's likely a belt. If it is an electrical smell it could be one of the two motors going bad. Those units see half the world before you get them it's possibly bad from the factory. This happens fairly often. You likely bought it from a private dealer take it back and see what they say? It shouldn't smell bad right out of the box. Here's a little more reading if you need to know more.

Sears has tablets for front load washers that work great. I use one every month and it has helped the stinky washer smell and the bad smell in the clean clothes. It is called Affresh and it works better than any of the cleaners you can buy in the grocery stores.
