Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

GE stackable washer and dryer. washer will not spin. smelled something burning, could not tell if it was electrical or a belt. when I first noticed it, I opened the lid, stuck a spoon handle in the lid switch and moved the drum manually, it started to spin then slowed down and repeated this until it finally stopped. It was cycling on and off while doing this. everything else works just fine, it just won't spin. the belt appears fine. I have it in pieces at the moment.

Sounds like a sticky brake assy. This type of brake is very tricky and should be checked be a service technician

It's possible to do it yourself but not recommended because of the 200 lb. pressure spring. Hope the diagram will help.

SOURCE: Washer Stuck in Cycle

I checked the lid switch and nothing appears to be broken (cracked plastic). What exactly should I be looking for? Also during the agitator cycle I opened the lid and the washer stopped working. Does that mean that the lid switch is working?

SOURCE: Maytag Washer will not spin

Pull the unit forwardand lean it back about 45 degrees. You'll have to play with it a bit, but once it's far enough out, it will lean back without you having to hold it. Remove and inspect the belt(s) are they in good condition? Next, check the pulleys (wheels) underneath. Do they turn? One is for your pump, one is for your transmission and one is for the motor. (in case one doesn't turn, you'll know what portion needs to be worked on). Also check the track on your pulley the belt sits in. Is it dammaged or worn?

Wont spin cycle at full speed


Burning smell is a slipping belt. These are tricky to get apart and diagnose but find the reason the belt is slipping and replacing it will solve your problem. Could be clutch, bearing or gearcase related.

My ge stackable smells like it is burning. How do I fix this?


Well, you do not mention which machine causes the smell. My concern is fire hazzard, be sure to check the dryer hose system, and DO NOT USE plactic vent hose, major fire hazzard, they make the same thing in metal and it works better....

Can you buy a frigidaire stackable washer separately?


Have you had a qualified service man look at your machine? I would think that the burned rubber smell would direct you to examine the belt (found in the very bottom after removal of front cover).
If it is the belt it is a very easy fix on this machine. The not draining part wouldn't be related to the belt the pump that does the draining is driven by its own electric motor and is easily visible when the front cover is off. Its located on the bottom left side. If a sock or other small item manages to get over the side of the basket it always ends up jamming the pump.
You would have to take the pump apart to retrieve the item and restore pump function
Good Luck

There was a rubber smell, now washer won't spin.


It is possible that the bearings supporting the drum have seized

Was the machine noisy before it stopped?

If there is tension on the belts and the drum is locked then the motor will spin and burn the belts.

My Stackable washer/dryer is not operating right


Two things:

1) I would first check your water pump, if something gets in it or the water pump bearing is bad, it makes this kind of a sound.

2) If you can spin the washer drum by hand in either direction, the transmission is bad.

Good Luck!

GE washer stopped spinning and smell of burning out lingered


I am going through this right now and best I can tell..needs a new belt. Pop the front off of your washer (UNPLUG IT FIRST:)) and see if there are black shavings on the bottom. The appliance place where we usaully order our parts from do not carry this belt in stock so it will have to be ordered. Price from them was $19.00+ tax
