SOURCE: Washer stopped mid cycle

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

My magic chef washing machine makes a loud grinding/rubbing noise when agitating. Everything still washes and no smell of burning rubber, etc.

Stop the making if you can. Be sure something is wrong. When the machine is empty, ask a technician to check what is wrong. If it is an old machine, start saving for a new one and forget the tech.

Washing machine wont turn on or do anything

As I understand you, there does not seem to be anything wrong with the belt in spite of the burning smell. have you checked the fuses. Often there are small fuses that distribute the power to different parts of the machines, they are most often situated near or in the control panel. Check that.
good luck

Maytag atlantis series mav6200aww, there was a burning rubbery smell today when it was in the spin cycle. I turned it off and unplugged it what could it be

could be a belt and or the pulleys under the machine are plastic so one of them could have melted along with the belt smoking. could be something in pump or look in washer and see if there mite be a nail or something like a nail in one of the little holes in the inner tub . the nail could be making the machine not spin and could be causing the belt also to smoke.

Washer stopped working all together

Hi,Check your water solenoid valve, the part where you connect (2) hoses, could be burnt out, sometimes they do, especially if your water pressure home (building) is low, or could be your motor, remove back of machine and check water valve, check valve with ohm tester, or visual check can tell you, if burnt out, replace it, few things could burnt out, motor, capacitor, switches/relay etc, but first check water intake (solenoid) valve, also,check / reset, fuse/circuit breaker, probably went of, when burning smell occurs, ( happened) if it's not your water intake valve, let me know, we can check other possibilities. but i believe it's your valve, good luck.

Washer stopped during wash cycle, burning smell Take a look at what a new motor costs for your machine and go from there. Is may not be a motor is could be a belt or a bearing. I rebiult a washer for less then 50 dollars that one did not need a motor just bearings and a belt. I would take the washer apart so you can get an idea of what went wrong and then look at parts to repair it and decide what to do good luck

Magic Chef Clothes washer model CAV2004AWW

Something locked up on the transmission then the drive belt broke. Put on a new belt and try a spin cycle, if it works but it won't agitate then the trans will need replaced.
