Maytag washer won't agitate burning smell - Washing Machines

Posted by on

  • meghan06 Aug 24, 2008

    My washing machine won't agitate either, it will fill, spin and rinse, but it won't agitate. Mine is a Maytag MTW5600TQ1 washer. I made it through 3 loads this morning, and now nothing. When it does get to the point where it's supposed to agitate, it makes a humming noise for about a minute and then shuts off entirely. This is followed by a burning rubber smell. HELP!!!

    I have a SAV2655AWW top load washer which did the same thing within a year after purchasing. Now it won't agitate without making a lot of noisy. It is making a clicking sound, as if something isn't engaging fully.

Maytag legacy series washer


The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

I have a Maytag Washer Model #PAV3360AWW. It smells like it is burning and the drum will agitate when it is turned on and then stop. Any idea of what the problem is? Thank you.


Number 4 is your pump. These tend to lock up and cause the belt to burn up. Tip back the washer and remove the belt (no tools needed). Turn the pump and check for bearing separation.

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.
