Smell of burning rubber and smoke from drawer


Sounds like your drive belt is loose or worn out. You will probably need a new belt. Is it possible something got inside the machine and jammed the belt?

The washine machine finished it's cycle but there was smoke coming out of the drum and a burning rubber smell


The usual cause of smoke coming out of drum is that the heater element has come on or stayed on with no water in the drum
Try it on a spin cycle only, if smoke still comes out of drum, then could be a faulty pump, or main motor is burning.

I have a Kenmore series 90 washing machine, Model 110.26902691. I changed the motor coupling last week and after being proud of my work, I was able to complete one cycle before I started to smell a burning...


Hi,

Considering the info you`ve provided, specific to the history of replacing the drive coupling. You stated that right after replacing the coupling it started to smoke or as you said "I started to smell a burning smell". Can you identify if it was electrical, or was it rubber/plastic ?

I`ve seen these coupling`s when not put on correctly start to rub against the motor or the transmission, you might want to double check your work with installing the coupling.

Aside from that it could possibly be the motor, but if it agitates and manages to advance through the wash & rinse cycle up to the spin, I`d be skeptical of a motor problem. You should check to make sure the lid switch is being fully closed, in the event it isn`t closed properly the unit will do everything except spin.

Hope that help`s. Good luck.

Kenmore washer has burning smell and smoke


It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Burning Smell - smoking coming out of it


I believe we tracked it down to the pressure switch mounted on the drain pump. The device had a strong electrical burn smell and is positioned where it could easily have smoked the basket. We're putting the washer back into service and if I have a recurrence I will post the information. BTW ... Replacement was simple and the part was $26 including shipping.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)

Washer emitting burning smell and smoke on fast spin


Yes, the heating element is coming on when it shouldn't. A likely cause is the pressure pot (Level sensor sender unit) being blocked with sludge. You'll find this under the machine, either screwed to the RH side of the tub, near to the front of the machine secured by three Philips screws, or attached to the side of the big hose that goes from the tub to the pump,secured by a Jubilee clip, underneath the machine. disconnect the power and remove the pressure pot, in both cases it's a long rigid white plastic tube, from one end of which comes a narrow flexible plastic hose which goes up to the top of the cabinet and is attached to the pressure switch itself. This tube is likely to have a load of muck in it, as its bottom end. Clean this out, and if your element didn't burn out, then everything should now be fine.
