Usually when these units smoke it is the belt burning on the motor pulley. Depending on the model you will probably have 2 phillips screws towards the bottom of the panel on an upward angle. Remove the two screws and pull the panel towards you and there is two tabs at the top of the washer. Put it into a spin cycle and see if the transmission is spinning freely. If not unplug the unit and try to spin it by hand.

There are a couple issues that can cause the belt to burn up.

1) The tub bearing is tied up which would usually mean it sounded like a jet taking off for a while before the issue occured.

2) The idler pulley bearings are bad. You can remove the belt and spin the idler pulley. If its tied up then replace the pulley and the belt.

I hope this helps. In the future if you have problems the model number would really help me to give your more model specific information. I will be available for chat for a little while if you want additional help with the unit.

Good luck _MJ_

If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin


How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

Washer did not spin


JERRY,
IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU GOT TAKEN ON THIS WASHER. A NEW WASHER NORMALY WORKS, BUT IN SOME INSTANCES, LIKE YOUR CASE, IT COULD BE THE BELT OR THE MOTOR COUPLING. WHAT I WOULD DO IS CALL THE PLACE WHERE YOU GOT YOUR WASHER FROM AND HAVE THEM TO BRING YOU A NEW REPLACEMENT. THERE HAVE BEEN COMPLAINTS ABOUT WASHING MACHINES NOT WORKING RIGHT WHEN THEY WERE NEW. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU AND ANYBODY ELSE WHO READS THIS WEBSIT, BECAUSE THERE IS NO SENSE IN THE STORE SELLING A BRAND NEW WASHER WHEN IT ALREADY LEAKS.
