Broken Washer? I washed a heavy rug in the washer...the washer stopped working and started smoking. Do I need to replace the whole washer or is it possible that I just burnt up the belt?

If it is a belt drive it could have burnt up, If if its direct drive the coupler. these would be the cheap fixes. But in both cases the motor could have burned up. The motor probably cost 120 plus or minus plus labor, a hundred or so. If its old maybe replace. If it was mine I would fix it.
Hope this helps

Maytag centennial washer not working properly in Normal cycle. After it shuts off there is still water in the bottom of the tub. I can move the dial to another setting such as Casual cycle or Heavy Duty...


We have the same problem. The Normal cycle still works, but after the final spin cycle, water is again added (1 gal est.) and the machine stops. Problem occurred after washing an old 25 x 30 inch rug which partially disentegrated when washed. We were seeing particles of the rug in subsequent wash cycles during drain into laundry tub. Don't know if something is plugged in the washer or if it is something else. In another load after the rug wash, the top of the washer was lifted during the wash cycle. The water problem occurred immediately after lifting the lid as the wash load went through remaining cycles. Maybe this affected the timer? Maytag customer service suggested unplugging power cord to re-set timer. This didn't make any difference. We need a technician to tell us if this is a timer problem or something else?

Washed a load of floor rugs now washer will not drain


sorry but one rug is ample for any machine,but the load weight alone is far to much on the machine,i have been in a testing factory and seen the things people put in machines and it would shock you,but back to your presant problem?basicly the whole dranage system is full of heavy dirt and needs cleaned badly.Try putting two dishwasher tablets through machine and see what happens but i must say i wouldnt have high hopes,i would think lower dranage pipes are going to be cleaned.if you want my help come back to me.adrian,,,,,,,

Washer will not start washing cycle. Machine hums like the dryer


Check the drain for clog. If the drain is dirty, the washer won't fill, rinse, or drain.

My washing machine wont empty or spin it was working the other day and i put a small rug in it that went heavy when it was wet and it stopped working it is a centrex 7 kilo


You drain pump may be full of the rug stuff you will need to open the washer and the remove drain hose to remove what is stuck in the pump.... I have used a shop wet/dry vaccum put on the drain hose to remove stuff... but it will not always work...

good luck
