Kenmore 90 series washing machine, heavy duty, super capascity plus,quiet pak2 3spd motor w/5spd combo, when in spin mode, it smells like melted crayons


If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

I still need help with this.


Some models of top load washers use a clutch assembly to drive the wash basket during the spin cycle. A burning smell in your washing machine can be a result of a worn clutch, and your machine will likely be making a loud scraping noise during the spin cycle. Another common sign of a worn clutch is brake dust or shavings found underneath the washing machine. If your machine displays any of these symptoms, the clutch may need to be replaced. The clutch is normally located at the input to the basket drive and you will need to remove the cabinet and motor assembly to gain access. Clutch assemblies are often under spring tension and you should always wear protective clothing and remove power from the appliance when attempting this repair. hope this helps

Strong mildew smell in washer is making cloths & towels smell bad, how do you get rid of the problem?


if you look inside washer there is a rubber rim on the inside around the openning. Look inside and you will find where the stink is coming from. Keep door open when not in use and wipe inside of rubber trim to keep the mildew out.

I use tilex sometimes and do a rinse spin.

Spin cycle won't spin. Burning smell. How do I


Remove the back -- you'll see the screws to do this. Sounds like the belt or the clutch is slipping and overheating.

Whirlpool top loader won't spin


If you are lucky you need a set of clutches about $45. If you are unlucky you would need a transmission.

Since it spins after you help it, I am guessing clutches.
