Washer wont run but is trying to

When i start the washer it makes a humming sound, and smells like electrical burning. If I spin the tub a few times it will start, but when the next cycle is supposed to start it will do the same thing. I then have to turn the tub to get it to do each cycle.

Sounds like the motor or capacitor (next to the motor), the capacitor helps the motor to start, once running a switch inside the motor disconnects the capacitor from circuit.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

check the motor for that, there may be smoething stuck ther. for the humming sound, when did this started happening? for the smell, check for frounded wire. for repeating each cycle, try to check for the housing if its still operational because the burnt smell and the cycle repeating is linked.

It made a quite hum during the spin cycle, instead of the normal (much louder) spinning sound. When I turned it off I noticed it had a rubber/electric burning smell.


If it's a squealing sound, your belt is probably bad. If it's a humming noise with those smells you listed, it might be your transmission going bad.

Kenmore direct drive washer - not spinning


While it could be the tranmission, that is a fairly rugged part (although not impossible). More often, you have bad contacts in your timer. These will short together and cause the machine to try and do multiple things at once, thus causing the burning smell. You didn't list a model number, but for most of the Kenmore washers, you can open the console (two phiilips screws on the front or back towards the bottom) to access the timer. Most timers are able to be opened to verify visably black or silver marks on the normally brass colored contacts.

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
