    I put in a thin comforter and 2 thin blankets. I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis HE. About mid cycle, I see LD flashing in the panel, I tried to balance the load but the cycle would not continue. About every couple seconds it would beep and the selector knob would flash. I emptied the washer and drained all but a inch of water, unplugged it repeatedly for 30 min or more and tried to start it. It came on but would not do anything. HELP!!!

    My Kenmore washing makes a wobbly noise when it runs. All the cycles work, it fills with water, spins, etc. The washing machine just makes this noise like it it out of balance but the machine is not overfilled with clothes and nor does it appear out of balance.

Sounds like your motor coupler may have failed. Part number is 285753A, and costs under $15.00 in most occasions. UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE AND TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY PLEASE. Remove the two console hold down screws (will see them, or will be under the end caps which just pop off). Remove these screws, then flip console up and over the top of the unit. They should be on hinges, but watch to be sure. Remove the two gold clips and the safety switch wiring connector. Swing the cabinet out, then off. Remove the two clips from the pump, and swing it out of the way. Remove the two 1/4" or 5/16" screws that hold on the motor clamps. Remove the motor wiring harness, then remove the bottom clip first, then the top. Gently remove the motor. On either end will be the motor coupler, you should see where its broke or damaged. Tap new coupler onto the shaft with an extension and 9/16" socket. Reassemble opposite of removal. Let me know what you find. Good Luck!!!!

My washer keep shorting out why is this


It may be the motor, transmission, or both. If these are shot on your washing machine, the result may be an electrical burning smell. Both are necessary to run your washing machine and can be costly to repair. The first thing to do if you notice an "electrical" smell in your washing machine and not a "rubber" burning smell, is to unplug the machine and call the manufacturer or a repairperson.

An electrical burning smell may also be caused by a water leak coming into contact with electrical wiring. Both are major concerns and should be addressed immediately. A water leak can cause structural damage in your home and can short out the electrical wiring in your washer and cause additional damage to the machine.

Another more likely cause of a burning smell in your washer is overloading. Adding too many clothes to your washing machine can stress the motor or transmission, causing them to overheat or malfunction and emit a burning smell.
If the washing machine is old (15 - 20 years) you could have nuisance tripping on aGFCI outlet, however that doesn't mean you get rid of the protection of the outlet, it means you probably should consider replacing the washing machine for a newer model.

Hi machine wash overloaded with clothes and then I smelled like something burning. It is fuling but not starting could you help me please.


The burning could have been the motor or the coupler. The coupler is designed to break so permanent damage to the motor and parts does not occur.

Dryer part, smells burnt and is extremely loud


If you notice a burningsmell in your washing machine, the cause could be any number of things. Regardless, this is one smell you shouldn't ignore. It's important to quickly diagnose the problem and find the solution.
The "Burning Belt" Smell

Older, top-loading washing machines use a belt drive to transport energy from the motor to the transmission and pump. The belt can prevent costly repairs to the motor or transmission by slipping, stretching, or breaking if there is a malfunction in the machine. If the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning "rubber" smell.

The solution is actually quite simple: you need to replace the drive belt on your washing machine. You can call a repairperson or, if your washer is under warranty, the manufacturer. If you or someone you know is handy, you can replace the belt yourself. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer.

Most new washing machine models are "direct drive." This means they do not use a belt. The motor is directly connected to the transmission. If you have a direct drive machine and your washer smells like it is burning, read on.
Electrical Problems

If your washer smells and you have a direct drive machine, it may be the motor, transmission, or both. If these are shot on your washing machine, the result may be an electrical burning smell. Both are necessary to run your washing machine and can be costly to repair. The first thing to do if you notice an "electrical" smell in your washing machine and not a "rubber" burning smell, is to unplug the machine and call the manufacturer or a repairperson.

An electrical burning smell may also be caused by a water leak coming into contact with electrical wiring. Both are major concerns and should be addressed immediately. A water leak can cause structural damage in your home and can short out the electrical wiring in your washer and cause additional damage to the machine.
Other Causes

Another more likely cause of a burning smell in your washer is overloading. Adding too many clothes to your washing machine can stress the motor or transmission, causing them to overheat or malfunction and emit a burning smell. For top load washers, overloading can cause the agitator to freeze or malfunction, stressing the drive belt and causing friction, which could emit a burning rubber smell.

To prevent overloading, know the size of your washer. They are measured in cubic feet. In addition, know how many towels, pants, shirts, and other items you can safely load. When it doubt, do smaller loads. Not only will this prevent overstressing the machine, it will also ensure clothes are thoroughly cleaned and rinsed.

Burning smell


There's a number of reasons to smell burning after a washing machine cycle. It's a 220V appliance, so if it short's out it will cause problems. It's more likely the motor being overloaded making it hot and causing the electrical burning smell, or a short that's overheating something electrical. Check to see if the belt that spins the whole barrel is melted or worn anywhere. Inspect the wiring that's attached to the system that engages spin, which is different from agitation by the big tower.
If these both check out, an trip to the Maytag Man might have to fix overloading motors or relays, or switches, if anything turns up in your search for the source of the electrical smoke. Ozone is what you are smelling, FYI.

My washer makes a loud noise during a normal wash cycle.


If it is a belt driven machine, then there's the smell. Lean it back a little, enough to fit a paint can under 1 corner and you can feel the belt right on the bottom. Feel for cracks, flat spots or a lot of black dust. Remove belt and make sure everything that it goes around spins free.

Washing machine stopped midcycle


It seems like the engine of the washing machine has burned out. If you are still in your warrenty period (and you used the machine conform operating instructions) you can contact the store you bought it from and ask for a replacement or repair. Otherwise you'll have to ask a repair man to come but these can be quite expensive.
