    I am having the same problem with mine....I smelled something burning and found sopping wet clothes inside. when i turned it back on it was not spinning. when i took it apart i found a broken plastic piece, round 2" in dia. and looks like a bearing housing or something.it looks like little square teeth and it has grease on it. I dont know if this has anything to do with it but i really need my washer back. Please help!!!

Washer agitates but will not spin. Burning smell coming from motor


The water pump could be stuck, or broken so the pulley on the pump is not spinning, while the belt is, which gives you the burning smell. Could also mean the motor is overheating giving you the burning smell. You will have to open the back and observe whats happening while its running. Just keep your hands clear while its working.

Kenmore washer wont drain


There is a coupling between the motor and the pump and this has finally worn out... on some models the pump is belt driven and the belt could be bad... on some models the pump is seperate from the drive motor and has its own motor just for the pump...this could be running but the pump part could be bad...nearly all machines will allow the water to drain out if you just lower the drain hose lower than the tub...try letting the water drain into a small bucket and then see if it wil spin...it should spin once the water is drained out but you will have to keep the drain hose in the bucket lower than the tub through the spin cycle....this should work and allow you to get all the water out of your machine....dont use it any more....get it repaired by a washing machine maintenance person

My FWSB5700DS0 top load washer can't get up to speed in the spin cycle. It spins up for a 5-7 seconds and before reaching full speed, it stops spinning, and the pump stops pumping. Then after a 10-15 ...


It sounds like the motor is going out. The motor will shut down when it gets to hot and once it cools it will try to work again. Motors are around $150.00 on the average. You can look at the motor and get the part number off of it and then look on eBay and find one a little cheaper.

The washer will go into final spin, it seems to be


Well there could be few things causing the smell and the tub not turning. Its possible something is restricting the tub from turning and the motor is over heating. It is also possible that the transmission has a broken gear and you are smelling something from it getting hot inside. Or you could have a bad belt or coupling. Also the water pump could be stopped up. Its hard to tell because there are so many different types of washers and Im not sure which one you have I assume it is a whirlpool late model.

Washer spins but won't drain, electrical smell


HI, the smell is coming from the pump housing. the pump impeller may have slipped of the drive stud, in return, jamming itself in side the housing. this will cause the pump to burn out. Check the following before you replace the pump.

1. Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

Roper Model RAS6233KQ Spin Cycle doesn't get the water out


Its sounds like the pump has frozen, If your smelling the belt burning its either that, the tranny binding, Or the tensioner has a defect (very unlikely). If its washing, agitating and spinning okay its the pump. Get ya a new belt while your at it!

Kenmore Washer Won't Drain


yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.

the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.

FRIGIDAIRE FWX435RHS - FINAL SPIN PROBLEM...............


Most likely cause is partial blockage in the pump or filter. refer to your manual for access to your pump filter..most manual's show you how to do this and is not a difficult procedure. Good idea to do this on a semi regular basis as front loaders do build up with lint in this area
