Check the lid switch and see if it is working correctly if so it is possible that it is the motor

Tip

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin


If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

What causes a washing machine not to drain and spin?
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing.

My vacuum was working fine, then started to smell a little funny like something was burning. Turned it off. Now when you turn it on it will run for a few minutes and then shuts off, like something is...


The smell is usually the fan belt. When the brush is stuck in place, the belt spins and burns. Check to see if the brush is free to spin. If the Belt is burnt, it needs to be replaced.

Panasonic MC-CL673 vacuum is not getting up to speed and smells


Even though the brush is spinning, you probably need to replace the belt2_bing.gif because it is stretched. It is probably slipping on the beater bar. This is causing the smell (burning rubber). I don't believe it is your motor. :-)

SMELLS LIKE A BELT BURNING AFTER i WASHED A RUG


KatieD,

If it won't spin or drain water, you are right to look for a drive belt related problem. The belt is underneath the bottom floor pan.

Here's what I did:

1) leaned the washer back a bit and propped something firm and secure under the front edge.

2) after seeing the belt was intact, I pulled it off, it is seven years old, and not too stiff.

3) After making sure no limbs were under or inside the machine, I had my wife start the machine in the spin cycle and watched as one of the 2 smaller pulley's in the corners spun very quickly. This was the motor pulley. Had my wife turn if off.

4) Attempted to turn each of the 3 pulleys that the belt had been wrapped around. The large plastic transmission pulley in the center turned with a little effort. The small metal pulley for the motor turned with very little effort. The remaining metal pulley in another corner would barely turn at all, and it should have been the easiest to turn. This pulley was for the drain pump and was nearly seized up.

I'm sure this is my problem as it is a fairly common point of failure and one of the most inexpensive repairs for the FIY'r. New drain pump should be about $70-$90.

Hope this helps you with your problem!

Will not spin and smells funny


Does the washer agitate while in wash cycle? Does it move at all? It may be that the motor that drives the spin and wash cycle is not working. If it smells funny, it usually means that you have bearings gone bad or a belt, if it is belt drive, broken. You can replace these parts. All the parts involved with spinning can be replaced. The parts are available from the maker. It may be a spin clutch, agitator gear, pulley, or a transfer case..

Does not complete spin cycle


Ok, when this happens, its usually because of a drainage issue. the spin cycle has to work in conjunction with the drain pump to remove the water during the spin cycle and, if there is a clog or drainage issue, the spin cycle will shutdown. check the following to address this drainage issue.


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
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).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Your drain filter is clogged with debris. Usually small items like dirt, paper, money, and much more. Clean the filter and you should be set to go.

if you have a rubber smell that means that the belt is burning through. Several problems can be the case.
1 bearing of the drum ( check if it turns freely if so the bearing is ok)\
2 the belt is worn and need to be replaced.
3 carbon brushes in motor are worn
4 bearing in motor is gone

open the backside of the machine and check belt.
think that is your problem
