Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
This is regarding a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine. After five continuous loads of wash, the washing machine produced a burning rubber smell and then stopped working. After 7 hours, The machine was able to work again in proper working order. Is this because it was overworked? The motor could have possibly overheated? Please provide me with a more probable answer, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thatss what it sounds like to me the motor simply turned off on overload( giving that electrical, almost burnt rubber smell.) either that or it was overloaded as well as overworked. i wouldnt see any reason for concern, unless was happenig on regular basis

THERE IS ONLY ONE DEVICE ON A TOP LOAD WASHER THAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE MACHINE AND THEN RESET LATER. THE MOTOR HAS AN OVERLOAD ON IT THAT WILL TRIP IF THE MOTOR GETS TOO HOT OR PULLS TOO MUCH CURRENT. IT SOUNDS LIKE IT GOT TOO HOT FOR SOME REASON. IF THE MACHINE WAS OVERLOADED ON EACH WASH LOAD, IT COULD CAUSE OVERHEATING OF THE MOTOR.
ANOTHER CAUSE WOULD BE IF THE MOTOR IS A TWO OR THREE SPEED MOTOR, AND THE TIMER OR SPEED SWITCH FUSES CONTACTS TOGETHER, IT COULD CAUSE TOO MUCH CURRENT TO RUN THROUGH THE MOTOR OVER HEATING IT.
I WOULD JUST MONITOR IT AND SEE IF IT GOES AHEAD AND WORKS O.K. THE OVERLOAD WILL KEEP IT FROM BECOMING DANGEROUSLY HOT.
