hi Garrett,

sounds like a frozen gearbox. check the pulley that is being driven by the motor or by the secondary belt that you are saying. it could be the gear box broke and would not spin. another thing to look at once the gearbox is down is the brake mechanism. it could have broke down and would not run because the brake is not yet released.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: LOUD NOISE AND BURNING SMELL

How old is this dryer? If it is older that 15 years get a new one. You don't want to deal with the headaches. The motor may be going bad on it and the wiring could be melting. I assume it is not working now. Have him check the breakers. Make sure the connections are o.k. in the back. Clean out the lint piping and look for lint underneath it as well.

SOURCE: burned belt?

Yes, smell like your belt.. if there is water in tub, try to get it out... (wet vac)... slide your washer out and tilt it back so you can see under... there should be 2 belts.. 1 for gear and 1 for water drain pump... and you can check Sears.com for parts.. good luck...

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Won't Spin Drum


The problem could be a list of things . Let's start checking the belt , it coul be that the belt is broken or something is keeping it from doing its job ( a piece of clothing coul be stuck) due to the burned rubber smell you detected. It coul also be the electrical door switch and After checking the three first steps then comes the motor part lets hope is not . Good luck

Maytag oversize capacity washer just finished filling up the tub with water. Then it had a burning rubber smell. I shut it off and on a bunch of times and there isn't even any sound. (like the mot


You need to observe and check after disconnecting the power , touch the motor, the element area or the control panel or the valves/pump.
If you notice any heat on these , it can be the culprit.
You can proceed to remove the suspected part to discover what was the reason for the burning rubber smell.

Maytag Neptune Dryer smells like burning rubber or plastic...


The drum belt could be rubbing on something inside. Does the dryer make a squeeking noise? Se if there are small rubber particles on the bottom, this will indicate a deteriating belt.

Most probably the bearings heating, which in turn heats the rubber seals and causes the belt to slip.
If there is no noise of metal on metal, you may be able to grease the bearings to get some more life out of them.
Taking the drum out is not an easy job though.
