Funky smell from working Whirlpool Ultimate Care II

Washer works perfectly fine - including the agitator. Clothes stuck to side of well when wash done. Clothes clean.
Smells like either plastic melting or funky electrical burning smell. Pretty strong. No signs of anything wrong or melted when I look under washer.
Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem, however the burning smell was only on the permanent press cycle at first. Now it is on the normal cycle as well. A repairman is coming tomorrow. I will update once he (or she) tells me what's wrong. Another post with agitator problems said it was the clutch (and there was an accompanying burning smell) but we'll see.

Run the washer then smell the motor or see if anything has jumped the tub and causing the clutch to pull harder

Ive experienced a smell, somewhat electrical in nature. when the motor is over worked,, restricted incoming power supply, or simply a fluky one time issue and never repeated again.. generally the motor overheats and trips off on overload, shuts off temporarilly and then restarts with no sign of problem.i guess it would be possible that perhaps theres something stuck between the tubs and at high speed spin causes friction against the tubs causing a smell, but not likely cause that usually heard, or prevents unit from spinning at all. other then checking your incoming power supply for at least 110v. probably not much else to look into. Obviously its not my house, and if it was to happen again or with any sorta frequency, call someone in to look at.

    Sour clothes smell from washer

    Until you can find the filter (I'll investiate!) I suggest running it on hot hottest wash you can (empty) with just bleach. That at least should kill the bacteria that are causing the smell

    this type of whirlpool washer has the water pump on the other end of the motor. if you are sure that you installed the drive coupling correctly then it is most likely something in the pump.
    you can unhook the pump and run the washer and see if it works OK.
    If it does then go get a new pump
