Question about Maytag Dependable Clean Top Load Washer, MAV3955EWW
Your washer uses a belt to transfer the power to the tub from the motor. If the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer.
Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.
Please post back for any further assistance.
