Washer stopped running on spin cycle at this time my wife and I caught a smell of burnt belt, if this is the case and it's not the trans, how would we proceed to gain access and fix the belt.

    In a strange coincidence, the same exact thing happened to our washer today, with the burning smell and all. Our basket only spins clockwise. Oddly, it will spin if there's no laundry in it.

    The washer stopped working, once it filled the washer with water it stops. We first tired fixing the timer.

    No, it only spins counterclockwise.

My washer started smoking and smelling like burnt rubber during the spin cycle what needs to be fixed


Sounds as if your belt burnt up. Could be a bearing froze up or your belt broke and got caught on the pulley. You will have to look inside the machine from the back to see what it is. If the drum does not spin by hand easily it is probably the bearings

MOTOR SMELLS OF BURNT MOTOR WINDINGS. iS IT NORMAL


No, the pump works while spinning. The burnt smell is probably the belt, especially if your wife saw smoke. Did she put a big load in it at the time?

The belt will slip until the tub catches up with the motor. If there is a heavy load, it can burn the belt up. I would replace it. Make sure the idler pulley on the motor moves freely also.

Washer won't agitate or spin out.


Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

Performa washer smoking and smell of burnt plastic


It could be the pump or the motor overheating.
Remove rear panel, and run washer through a rinse and spin cycle.
After it has finished, unplug the washer, and feel the pump and the motor, they should be relatively cool to the touch.
If either the motor or pump feel hot, then that is probably the cause of the problem.
Also check for a worn or slipping drive belt.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Maytag Neptune front load washer (top of the line)


some of the early washers had problems with a weak or faulty motor . take front panel loose and look at motor board it may look burnt on some of the resistors or look at the clear fuse at front of board it may be burnt if so use a motor/board conversion kit p#12002039.
