All Maytags (greater than 2 yrs old) have belts that are prone to wear and slippage. (thus the odor) In all but one model is the belt is visible and replaceable beneath the machine. Simply lift and tip the machine back to gain access. In one model, the front panel will have to be removed in order to replace the belt. This is a good place to start, inexpensive and simple to replace..

Other causes for belts burning are:
1. Failed transmission
2. Failed water pump or debris stuck in water pump....

If I can be of any further assistance, let me know

Washer fills with water, loud thump sound, no agitation occurs.


The thump is probably the motor trying to start followed by the burning smell of the belt slipping. See if something is jammed, but the most likely thing there is a bad transmission.

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Electrical Burning smell when agitating, trips breaker.


Send your complete model number, just to make sure we are working on same washer.
First check the lid latch switch by unplugging washer first and remove the font panel. Look up to where the switch is mounted. I am not positive that is your [problem but know there has been many problem with that switch. It will begin to melt ad cause the power to motor to be lost in a bad connection.

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.
