Sounds like your motor is shutting down on the thermal overload/that is a safety device inside the motor.If unit was worked on lately maybe something was not put back the rite way..If not then most likely gearcase is getting bad and causing motor to work too hard .Could take unit apart to see if gearcase shaft turns freely.I have a post on here on how to take direct drive unit apart..'Good luck and thanks for voting

It could be the grease. It could run without noise if it was not installed all the way. Here is a link for properly installing Motor coupler video Now if everything looks right it is probally just the grease.

Kenmore Washer Won't Drain


yes, check the drain, could be clogged, or check the water pump assembly as well, the clothe could be stuck in the impeller.

the burning smell could be coming from a separate electric water pump and it can not turn that is why it is burning already.

My kenmore washer fills up but then just stops


it could be several things, something is lodged in pump, so the motor wont run, the motor is bad, or you have a bad transmission.

Start with the pump and see if it has sock or something stuck in it.

Loud noise and smell


It would help to know the brand and model number of the washer. If it has a belt that also runs the pump, something may have gotten into the pump during drain and locked the pump causing the belt to slip.
