SOURCE: Maytag front loading washing machine

3E has something to do with the motor control. Apparently the design of this machine allows a water leak either from the water intake box or down a rubber hose which runs along with the motor wire harness. The water tracks to the harness and motor and shorts the whole mess out. a.k.a. fried motor.
pull the back plate off (3 screws) and look at the motor where the wire harness plugs into it. Notice a bunch of green stuff- that is corrosion from the electrical short circuit causing your problem. See the rust build up on the side rail below the motor (as there will be none on the side adjacent) this is indicative of a water leak.
Our machine started doing this within the first week and we had the "service" people come out and "fix" it, but it appeared they did nothing. When I opened the machine up I discovered the problem when I ohmed out the rotor contacts in the motor wire harness and found it to be open instead of the factory specs of appx 2.5 ohms.
Maytag (now Whirlpool) does not want to send me a new motor and harness because of their bad design. The machine is a sealed unit only 23 months old. Note to all...do not buy Maytag or Whirlpool. That Maytag repair man is sitting on his bum because the company does not care about their consumers and their cheaply made products (sold at high markups).

SOURCE: Maytag Ensignia Smoking

I had the same exact problem, called a repairman to take a look..he informed me the motor has burnt out! His first thought was the transmission, and said having the motor burnt out is better since it is less expensive.

Smoke was coming out of my washing machine


That would indicate either that either the electric motor is starting to seize up or the belt is slipping.

Washer smoking


If it's smoking you have a serious electrical problem in the unit. Unless you're experienced in electrical problems call a repair service for this one. It's not worth burning the house down to save money on this one.

Washing machine won't run with load. The belt started smoking. I unloaded and everything runs fine.


i would suggest replacing that belt. most belts are desinded to slip, but after awhile they will lose grip from wear on their side.

Burning smell and smoke


Sounds like the belt has burnt off. You can check this by tilting the machine back and looking under it. Sometimes the belt gets hard and just starts to slip, then it will smoke and burn off. If this is the case, Just replace the belt and this will fix it.
