Question about Washing Machines
Hi- i really hope you can help. I have 3 boys, lots of dirty clothese, and a problem.
I have a kenmore washing machine, model 110-24642300 , top loading machine. I think we got it back in '05. Anyway, we have a few issues with it. It has been off balance for some time now (even when clothes are evenly distributed, no blankets etc). When it is on spin, it thumps so hard, it disconects the hose- more than any normal imbalance would do. Also, when you look inside when it is doing that (yes, it is does spin during the spin cycle) the drum is WAY off center, and can be moved around by hand. Obviously, our clothese are very wet when we are done.
Also, two more things, one, this is strange, but our washing machine stinks! No idea why.
The last, is that lately we have notices a burning rubber/fire smell when it reaches the spin cylce. Any ideas? Is it worth fixing, or replacing? (We dont remember how much we paid for it) Thanks for your help.
If you are handy at fixing such things it is not too terribly hard to fix, but you will need to remove the drum. Hopefully, it is just a worn belt, you will also want to check the clutch, motor pulley and motor coupler. The motor coupler can also produce the burnt smell and the wet clothing. I would say it is definitely worth fixing. Get an estimate and go from there .
