Samsung front loading washer started smoking while on spin cycle , new rubber seal an bearing ?


my first though would be to consider if its electrical smoke of friction smoke, chances are if it smokes on spin the motor is over heating and ready to pack in its operation, new brushes may solve the problem before buying a complete new motor.

I have a Kenmore Oasis Elite 110.280442700. I bought it at the beggining of 2008, never has given me any problem. About a month ago, it started to make a really loud noise during a spinning cycle, as if it...


April, You say you are suspicious that the smoke could have originated from the motor, BUT have you confirmed it? Have you tried running a short cycle without a load to see if the spin cycle rattles the machine or whether the machine works? Watch for smoke and turn off the machine immediately if you see or smell burning. If the motor is burnt, I think replacing should not be an option but rather replacing the machine should be considered.

I have a five year old Amana Commercial washer. The washer started smoking on the rinse cycle and I didnt realize that it wasnt spinning. Is the part to fix this reasonable or should I just replace the...


Hello,
Well their are several possible things that can cause that;
The transmission pulley did not properly disengage the brakes so in the spin cycle the tub didnt turn to cause the belt to slip and smoke and burn
thier is something obstructing the tub from turning on the spin cycle so again the belt slipped and smoked
the tub bearing is locked up so once again the belt......

so it may worth a service call to determine what the cause is,surely a belt will be needed but need to know why the belt is burning

Motor on washer smell and smokes


there is a contact switch in the washer down by the motor that determines which motor function that is needed gets energized. If one of these contact weld them selve closed then the motor can potentially operate on two different functions and burn up. Look to see if this is the case and if not contact me and theres other things to check.

Burning smell and smoke from motor


Sounds like the transmission is jammed.  This will cause the motor to bog and burn.

Burning (electrical) smell and other symptoms...


suppressor very unlikely to be the source of problems and would not explain the motor clicking
i think the main problem may be a faulty motor.remove the electrical connection and take the motor out - just held in by bolts - and examine carefully the motor commutator - the segments of copper the brushes run on.
i think you may find one or more segments lifted which would explain the clicking noise and maybe the burning smell. it would also explain the lack of motor rotation - just coincidence it happened on dry.

Smoking washer Amana NAV8800AWW


Ok, that's a different scenario. Generally, when a washer is agitating and develops an overload that stalls or overheats the motor, the problem could be caused by:
1. Too many clothes for the amount of water level selected. If clothes don't have enough water to circulate in properly, it can put excess pressure on the agitator which transfers to the gearcase, drive belt, and finally the motor. The motor is thermally protected and stops running until it cools down, then it will try to restart. In the process the drive belt could burn slightly to completely,so you may want to inspect the drive belt for burned areas.
2. Transmission malfunction, where something inside the transmission breaks due to an overload and jams a gear. End results can be the same as above.
I suspect a clothes overload may have caused the problem and once the overload is alleviated, the washer should operate normlly if the belt didn't burn,
