I have a 2012 top loading frigidaire gallery washer. It recently started making a loud thumping noise during the wash cycle. When it spins out it smells like burnt rubber. Any ideas? Thanks


There is a rubber belt between the motor and the rotating cylinder.
If it is frayed, then part of the belt is hitting something during the "wash" cycle, and rubbing much faster during the "spin" cycle.
Replace the belt.

Burnt rubber smell during spin cycle


Assuming it's a top loader, the coupling between the motor and the tub is failing. If this is an older machine, the cost of replacement may not be within reason. The cabinet has to be removed and additional disassembly is required to replace the coupling

Maytag Performa clothes washer. Model LAT2500AAE. Made screeching sounds during spin cycle also burned rubber smell. Turned off. Removed and replaced belts. One belt was shot. Ran a test run and still...


Check to see if your water pump is spinning. It could be seized up and the burning smell could be the belt spinning on the seized pulley. Good luck Friend.

Washing machine spins slowly and smells of burning rubber


The belt could be worn and will be slipping on the pullys, as it spins up the rubber , rubs against the pullys and that is what creats the burning rubber smell, the belt needs replacing.

Burning rubber smell


Even though manufacturers' love to advertise it, I personally would not load "too many items", as it may cause excessive normal ware and tear on your machine parts, motor, belt, etc.

Yes; the smell can be the belt and possibly your motor as well. The motor may be spinning, but the weight may be too much when the belt is engaging to rotate the drum. I would be careful not to burn the motor (About $120 - part only)

You should be able to access and inspect the drive-belt in the rear of the machine by removing an access panel (back of washer).

To replace the belt if fairly simple. Remove and re-install by wedging a long screw driver in between the belt and metal pulley (circular), while simultaneously rotating the pulley.

You may be required to make a belt repair if you start to have problems with your "washer not spinning" or "making a noise/not spinning"
