The unit will wash, but will not spin in any cycle

The washer would not spin after wash. It also had a burn smell to it as if something was slipping.

    The problem was the coupling between the transmission and motor. Thanks !

    I am having the same problem. Could this also happen if a belt needs to be replaced?

Frigidaire FEX831FS2 stack washer/dryer; it washes, but when it goes into spin cycle it does not spin and you can smell something "funny" burning up like a motor or something. This is what the...

well, The transmission hears turns 2 ways. One way to wash (which causing the agitator turn) and the other to spin. The motor also turns 2 way. If you say it washes fine and in spin cycle is where you get burning smell, maybe of many things: Bad transmission locking up motor causing the burning smell. Possible bad motor trying to start (bad start winding or capacitor). Maybe something simple as something getting stuck in between outer tub and inner basket. Something you can do to check the motor mechanically is disconnect the belt from the transmission pulley and put the time on spin cycle. If the motor shaft/pulley spins on start up then the next thing to look into is the transmission or something catching it from spinning. Check the inside of the washer, if the basket is the type with small holes, make sure there is nothing stuck in any of the whole. Iv seen small screws getting lodged in there and preventing the basket from spinning. You can start by doing simple checks like this to start narrowing down things. Open the front panel form the washer and see if you have access to the belt, if not then you have to tilt the unit to get under it. if you have money and dont want to bother dealing with the unit then replace it. But i like investigating things first. go with whirl pool if you replace it. let me know if what you find if you do make these checks.

When washer is spinning it smells like something is burning

A burning smell means you have some slipping of the drive belt. I think your belt needs to be replaced. Another reason may be a binding in the tub. possibly a seized tub bearing. The only way to know is to take off the access cover at the back of the washer and visually inspect it first. you can spin the tub by hand from the back and this will give you an idea of what is binding.

Washer spins but won't drain, electrical smell

HI, the smell is coming from the pump housing. the pump impeller may have slipped of the drive stud, in return, jamming itself in side the housing. this will cause the pump to burn out. Check the following before you replace the pump.

1. Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

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.
