Have a trcity bendix washing machine and during a wash it was making a loud baning noise from the drum when spinning . i went to look and there was smoke coming from the back of it and out of drawer . it...

It sounds as if the bearings have gone or something as serious that needs inspecting.This machine would have the normal 5 year major parts warranty and they would offer a repair but you would pay the call out and labour.Hope this helps.

It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.
Good luck

Engine won't start. It will rotate but won't start. It was sitting over 3 years and the oil/gas wasn't drained when it was stored in the shop. I tried starting fluid and had no luck, it almost fired then...

It would be a good idea to change spark plugs, wires have the accel body cleaned and have the coil(s) checked if working ok. Since there was black smoke coming out, at least you know gasoline is flowing to the engine.

Does it finish washing if you allow to sit. Takes maybe 10 min. then completes. If so its the drive coupling.
repairclinic dot com has a nice illustration of machine. Not the loest prices but acceptable. May also be motor, I replaced coupler, machine worked great for maybe a year then had same thing. I used local shop for parts the repair guy was great help. Went back he said 100% needs motor worked great now seem to have same problem. NAFTA !!!!!

I think my washing machine just died!!!

The transmission could well have caused the failure but the smoke was almost certainly from the drive motor.
The cost of replacing them both is probably prohibitive.

Unless you are really into preserving the environment (and your machine) it may be time to retire it.

I don't know where you are but I would estimate the cost of the transmission at $120-150 US and the motor at $60-100 only for parts.

With the growing complexity of many machines, I tend to stick with those using older technology and keep my fingers crossed that they have not cheapened the quality too much.

As we equipped a new house 3 years ago, I did a lot of research and found essentially no machine that was 'bullet-proof.'

We finally bought Roper machines and have not had any complaints to date but have a small household so not much stress on the machines.
Roper has been owned by Whirlpool for years but my experience with direct Whirlpool branded machines really stinks; refrigerator died due to a low-voltage condition that occurred while we were gone requiring a new comperessor, washing machine thatate its transmission in < 3 years, etc.
All were purchased new.
