I have an LG front load washing machine and when it spins I can see and smell smoke. Some say it might be a belt but I just don't wanna go from that. Can someone plz help with this issue.

Hello sir

First you need to do something before attempting
To get an exspensive repair it or just buy a new unit.

Unplug from utility power

Open door and try to spin the basket by your hand
First attempt clock wise then counter clock wise
If you hear a deap ticking sound that increases with speeding up it's the motor damaged

If you hear a hissing sound the bearing and maybe the basket shaft try to pull outside the basket of it moves them its confirmed from bearing problem.
Smoke could be the belt sliding on the pulley but evenually will get out from position
Depends on the smell
If it's like burning charcoal then the motor or wiring got a water leak from inside washing machine on the motor also check pump by visual to see if the outside bodey rusted .

Kenmore agitates doenst spin

You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

Dryer motor hums, basket does not turn. If you move the basket by hand then try restart, it will work. Happens each time.

test the belt if there are tight? or loose? . If there are o.k the problem is Motor or control board, see in both cases if the voltage are entering to motor terminal , and output from control board is out to the input to the motor ? use the VOM. repair or replace.

God bless you

Kenmore Elite oasis washer code F54

F54 is a Motor Control Overcurrent.
1) check to see if there is anything between basket and agitator this can cause this error.
2)move the basket .. should move freely
if all is clear then most likely you will need a new motor

Tub does not move during wash cycle;just keeps filling;timer jumps from 25 to 4:then drains;flashes OL(small loads)

First, OL/UL stands for "Overload", so in other words, the washer things the tub is too hard to move because it's overloaded and the motor is struggling or the unit is way out of balance causing the washer to struggle. The most common problem is a nut below the inner tub that needs to "float". Floating is when the tub fills up with water to a certain level the inner basket will rise about 1 inch from the center agitator. What this does is disengage the basket from the motor so that the agitator can rotate independently from the basket. If the basket does not float then when it tries to agitate the whole basket will turn back and forth at the same speed as the agitator and this will cause the OL/UL error code.

Washing machine operates sporadially

What made you replace the motor? Sounds also like a transmission problem. You motor reversing in spin but gears for agitate stripped in gearbox. Double check motor/coupling alignment. Pull the motor back off and turn the gearbox drive shaft both directions. One direction makes the basket turn, the other direction makes the agitator turn. If the agitator does not move, the gear case is bad.

My ge profile washing machine went off balance and moved across the room.the basket is no longer centered. is the basket broken?

Hhi, It could be the basket brackets have jump over the shipping bracket and will not let the basket center it self.
There are 2 clips in the gap between the top and thefront panels. use a flat blade and push in on the clips releasing the front panel. It will lift off. The bracket I mentioned is located under the motor. There are 2 brackets and they have holes in them. If the basket is lodged against these 2 brackets, just bend them down toward the bottom to get htem out of the way. They serve no purpose. While you have the front off, the basket hangs on each corner. Make sure eash corner is still attatches to the hangers.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Washer won't agitate

Just fixed the same problem. Its a broken belt. Take the front panel off and to the right of the tub you will see a pulley and belt. We replaced both the pulley and the belt for around $40. Was real easy to do yourself.
