Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
I have a kenmore washer, and over the past few weeks it's been shutting off and leaving a 'burning' type smell. Not electrical, but more like rubbing. After awhile of sitting it would run fine. Finally, the tub quit spinning and no agitator action but there is a hum. I checked the motor coupling and that appears ok... could it be the transmission?
While it could be the tranmission, that is a fairly rugged part (although not impossible). More often, you have bad contacts in your timer. These will short together and cause the machine to try and do multiple things at once, thus causing the burning smell. You didn't list a model number, but for most of the Kenmore washers, you can open the console (two phiilips screws on the front or back towards the bottom) to access the timer. Most timers are able to be opened to verify visably black or silver marks on the normally brass colored contacts.
