Some machines are a real pain .I agree. But please look for the origin of the smell. It can be due to belt wearing, fault inthe gasket, the motor faulting.
You inspection is important than to think of all the parts that can smell rubber.
Please also check the gasket for poor sealing, if so remove, clean and set or if really bad replace.

My Beko washing machine has a smell of melted rubber and I found black bits on the drum. None of the clothes have been damaged but they do smell a bit. Is it overheating or something?


hi Alyson.
this is what i found on the internet.
WHAT'S CAUSING A BURNING SMELL IN YOUR WASHING MACHINE? If you notice a burning smell in your washing machine, the cause could be any number of things. Regardless, this is one smell you shouldn't ignore. It's important to quickly diagnose the problem and find the solution.
The Burning Belt Smell Many top loaders are direct drive. This means they do not use a belt. The motor is directly connected to the transmission.
In Whirlpool and Kenmore models there is a rubber coupler between the motor and transmission that takes much abuse. It's very common for the fingers or the rubber itself on the coupler to break. A clicking noise with no spin or agitation along with a slight rubber smell are symptoms of this problem.?DIY repair is possible. Older models may also have belts that can be tighted or replaced
The new Whirlpool or Maytag washer can often be fixed without calling for repair.
To work on a top load HE washer pull the empty unit away from the wall. Drape a small rug or towel over the control to minimize damage to the wall and the panel. Lean the unit against the wall and the bottom will be clearly visible. Lie on the floor and note if there are rubber pieces or shavings under the washer. The belt may be rubbing against a plastic guard attached to the motor. The solution is actually quite simple: If the belt is shredded or worn you need to replace it. You can call a repair person or, if your washer is under warranty, the manufacturer. Or, if you or someone you know is handy, you can do it yourself!
Electrical Problems If your washer smells. The first thing to do if you notice an electrical smell in your washing machine and not a rubber burning smell, is to unplug the machine and call the manufacturer or a repair person.
An electrical burning smell may also be caused by a water leak coming into contact with electrical wiring. Both are major concerns and should be addressed immediately. A water leak can cause structural damage in your home and can short out the electrical wiring in your washer and cause additional damage to the machine.

Other Causes

Another more likely cause of a burning smell in your washer is overloading. Adding too many clothes to your washing machine can stress the motor or transmission, causing them to overheat or malfunction and emit a burning smell. For top load washers, overloading can cause the agitator to freeze or malfunction, stressing the drive belt and causing friction, which could emit a burning rubber smell.
To prevent overloading, know the size of your washer. They are measured in cubic feet. In addition, know how many towels, pants, shirts, and other items you can safely load. When it doubt, do smaller loads. Not only will this prevent overstressing the machine, it will also ensure clothes are thoroughly cleaned and rinsed.

If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

I have a venus vw 1000 b washing machine and it looks like the rubber door seal has melted and left a smell of burning rubber? how can this happen?


Sometimes the door seal can vulcanise due to reactions from detergents. If you have noticed this then replacement is the only option as there will be water leak from the tub during wash.

What would cause the refrigerator door on a side by side to leak from the bottom of the door? The unit is very old


Leak as in water, or leak as in air flow? If it is leaking water, then you probably have a plugged drain that a warm guitar string down the drain might clear.

Leak as in air flow, usually means that you have something embedded in the soft rubber so that it doesn't form a tight seal or the rubber has deteriorated to the point that it won't form a good seal. If this is the case thien you will have to change the door seal to correct it.

You lost a seal in the gear-box, needs a new one, burning rubber smell is from the belt slipping and the gear-box being low on oil giving too much resistance on the belt.
