Question about Kenmore 94802 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
The other day the washer motor belt on my Kemore 94802 Front Loader started smoking bad. I opened it up and found that the belt had not moved and sat there on the motor pulley and melted down. I replaced the belt thinking it was just worn. Everything worked great for about 5 minutes and then the new belt started to smoke. I think the motor might be getting a little too hot.
But I was also thinking that something may need to be lubed or greased, since the motor may be having to work hard because its getting overworked.
Sounds like perhaps the trannsmission has locked up and is not spinning freely, therfore the belt is meeting resistance and not turniing.( try turning the trans. pullley( where the bsck of belt is wound)does it turn freely??? try turning the tub from inside does it spin at all??? before i condemn the tranny i would check for article of clothing fallling between the tubs, holding from spinning, also ive seen (nails/screws/bra underwires,etc..) poke through onr of the holes with in the tub abd stuck to the outer tub also preventing the tub from spinning, look closely to all the inner basket holes!!!
