Burnt rubber smell

Model PAV2000 Today I heard a strange buzzing sound from the washer and when I entered the laundry room it smelled kind of like burnt rubber. When I opened the lid of the washer the tub was filled with water and the machine won't turn on anymore. Is there a manual release to remove the water? The washer is about 9 years old. Is this an easy repair or do I need to call a service technician? Or should I replace it? Thanks, Sam

The belt is broken. the machine wont spin or agitate with a broken belt. set the timer to spin and the water should still drain. but not spin. belts are very cheap but replacing on could be tricky if you dont know what your doing

I was women up to a strong smell of burnt popcorn in my room. It's no where else in the house except for the room. My room is also where the breaker box is. Could this be an electrical problem?

Short answer - yes. While a "burnt popcorn smell" is not typical of the smell of an electrical problem, it is possible. You may also hear buzzing or crackling sounds coming from the panel, too. This is an indication of a loose, overheating connection that should be checked out sooner rather than later.

The fact that you were awakened by the smell, suggests that it was night time and likely that most of the other people in the house were also sleeping. The major electric appliances in the hose were probably off because of this - except for maybe the electric water heater, washer or dryer (they work just fine unattended), and sleeping people do not make or eat pop corn.

Good luck!

Laundry room smells like rotten eggs

Does the sewer drain line have a trap at the bottom that prevents sewer gas from entering the room? If the smell seems to be coming from the washer itself, run a wash cycle empty with a cup of baking soda, detergent and hot water to clean the interior.

Washing machine + burning smell

The load of rugs may have been too much for the device and there may have been considerable belt slippage causing the burnt rubber smell. Try another regular load and cross your fingers. And stay away from those outrageous loads!

GE Washer smells like burnt rubber

Hi, timhowarth1
ngafm at your service,

Because it wouldn't agitate or spin at all the belt burned as it tried to spin!
A problem with th coupler or transmission.
You need an experienced and hands on laundry tech or you may make matters worse or spend money replacing parts unnecessarily.


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


Bless You ngafm
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF

Thank You
