The burning rubber smell is probably the belt. It is probably broken into. Remove the front of the washer on a top loader to access the belt at the bottom where the motor is.

Lg gas dryer something burning


burning smells in driers can be sometimes from a blocked lint filter. The dried lint has been known to ignite when it gets hot. If you haven't cleaned the lint filter then do so and if the smell continues get it serviced.

Tip

Allways clean your filter on your washer


by cleaning your pump filter at leased once a month will make your washer perform better and last longer. it will stop problems accuring such as (door will not open ) (the machine will not spin on final spin ) (wet cloths) (un even loads) (dirty cloths) (smell & mould ) another good tip is dry off the rubber door seal after use and sprinkle a little talk powder on it this will stop it staining with mould.

Smell


Hello, In most cases when you have a burning smell a simple fix is your lint lines are dirty. A lot of time when your filter or your hose that goes out the back (by the wall) gets dirty it gets hot and starts to burn. There have been some cases where it will catch on fire, so always make sure lint filter and hoses are clean. Other forms of burning smell can be the dryer belt is waring out or loose, Kind of link when a vacuum cleaner belt gets worn and starts slipping and burning rubber smell. AND Finally could be the main barring that could be going out.

My advice start with simplest first, check vents and lint filter and go from there.

I hope this helps Mike.

Hi i have aburning smell coming from the machine but the machine works ok


Be sure the lint filter is clean, and the temp sensor blown clean. Sometimes when cleaning the lint filter the some small amount of lint drops by the filter or screen and land on a hot spot. Lint can catch fire so clean with a air hose or vacuum cleaner - Good luck and be safe

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Clean LG WF-T652a Top Loader Washing Machine


I have this problem too and I solved it easily !!!!

I hypothesised that something was blocked by dried up lint/silt. So I filled the machine with very hot water and also poured hot water down the lint filter outlets. I left it for 5 minutes and then started a wash cycle - and the water now comes out of the lint filter ducts. ! :-)

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
