Ron, is this a dishwasher or clothes washer? If a dishwasher, check the wire nuts in the junction box. If there isn't a melted wire nut from a loose connection. Then you have to pull the outer door panel, then you can pull the control panel assy. This will require a t20 torx bit.

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.

If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

Lg dishwasher smells like something is burning

This is an interesting problem and it requires some testing equipment to see what the problem is. You have to check the heating coil if it is a washer that heats the water. You also need to check the control board and some other things to see if you can locate the source of the burining smell. To perform these checks requite some test equipment like a meter.

Washer stopped spinning and something smelled like it was burning

immediately turn off your machine and check the power outlet if there is smoke, pull out plug, maybe there is a short circuit, do not plug again, call a handyman or bring to nearest service centers.

Washer stopped working all together

Hi,Check your water solenoid valve, the part where you connect (2) hoses, could be burnt out, sometimes they do, especially if your water pressure home (building) is low, or could be your motor, remove back of machine and check water valve, check valve with ohm tester, or visual check can tell you, if burnt out, replace it, few things could burnt out, motor, capacitor, switches/relay etc, but first check water intake (solenoid) valve, also,check / reset, fuse/circuit breaker, probably went of, when burning smell occurs, ( happened) if it's not your water intake valve, let me know, we can check other possibilities. but i believe it's your valve, good luck.

sounds like you have a short in the wires and the burning smell is the wires burning from touching ...check the wires and look for any blackness anywhere or if you see smoke anywhere ....

my advice is see if you can find the short before pulgging it back in if not call a repair man could cause a fire

hope this helps you out have a good day:)

Strong ozone-like burning smell

Sounds to me like the motherboard inside the unit is on it's way to thermal overload. This is a common problem with this particular model. You'll smell electronics burning and one day it'll quit altogether with a burst of smoke. I had this happen to me and I traced the problem back to a faulty triac (transistor-like device) that overheated and caused the circuit board and wiring harness to burn up from excessive current draw. I repaired my motherboard with a new triac ($6) and rewired the harnesses. A cooling fan on the heatsink of the board would solve this problem.
