Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9416

Burning Smell when spinning

Our Maytag LAT9416 has given us no problems for 8 yrs. This morning during the spin cycle, it sounded weak and I started to smell something burning. Could it be the drive motor? Any suggestions? Don't know whether it's worth getting fixed.

    Washer was stored for 2 years in a outside shed. Finally decided to use the washer and worked fine for 3 washes; next wash I smelled burning of some sort and spin cycle doesn't work nor does anyother cycle. I took the front panel off and noticed a most likely "mouse nest" with parts of fabrics in the motor area. Do you think the cause the motor to fail and if so, what's the easiest way to check the motor to see if it's any good? Thanks Bob First time here, can you also send a email to luftprop@centurytel.net

Spin cycle won't spin. Burning smell. How do I


Remove the back -- you'll see the screws to do this. Sounds like the belt or the clutch is slipping and overheating.

Maytag Atlantis shut down during rinse cycle.


Contacted a local repair shop. They told me that if I got it spinning again, the motor was most likely ok. It is protected by a thermal switch that turns it off when it begins to overheat. The smell was to be expected as it was overheating; the difficutly restarting was because it hadn't cooled off enough yet. We have now used it a few times for small loads. Still getting a smell, but the wash cycle is completing ok.
