Loud noise and smell

I would like to know what is wrong with my machine. It had just went on the rinse cycle and was proceeding to drain all the water out and all of a sudden I heard this loud noise . louder than the buzzer on the dryer and I started smelling something starting to burn, almost like rubber or something , coming from the back of the washer. It makes this noise as soon as I pull the switch to turn it on. If someone can tell me what is wrong, please contact me at my email address: [email protected]

Thanks for the info. I had someone come and get the machine tonight. They looked at it and said the whole transmission was shot and the coupler was fine.

Kenmore 70 series washers are direct drive machines. The transmission is joined by a drive coupler.When this wears out the transmission cannot engage but the motor still spins causing friction on the broken rubber coupler which makes the foul smell shes describing.

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.

Motor wont start


Washer fills with water then drains:
The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)

If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more. Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine. Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.
Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

What is the problem why water does not drain after rinse cycle?


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that your Electrolux washer is not draining properly. Some possibilities for your washer not draining could be an issue with the drain pump or control panel. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure there are no restrictions. If your washer continues to not drain properly you should seek assistance from a professional to repair the appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

How to fix nd code


ND means no drain. The issue could be using the wrong detergent. IT could also be something stuck in the filter or the pump.

Just had the exact same issue with my F&P it would stay in the drain cycle(without draining). It would show 2 minutes left in the cycle, dropping to 1 minute, but would never complete the cycle.
For some reason the machine would not drain the water from the drum and would continually remain in the drain cycle, spinning the load(back & forth), but not draining the water.
----------
This is how I sorted the machine: -
1. I turned off & unplugged the machine.
2. I drained the machine manually. Opening the manual drain compartment located at the bottom right of the machine.
a). Firstly drained the majority of the water using the small black hose into a plastic container(ice cream container will be fine). Took a little while as the machine was quite full and I also didn't want to flood the laundry.
b). Once I had drained most of the water I undid the filter plug to drain the remainder of the water, which wasn't too much & was able to mop up with a towel. I gave the filter a good clean, removing as much build up in there(which in actuality was very little lint, gunk, etc. Though I did find a small button & a collar stay wedged in there).
3). I blew very hard into the washing machine drain hose a few times(read this on another forum so thought I'd give it a try!). Use a plastic bag, etc. to cover the hose etc. for hygiene purposes :)
4). I then plugged & turned on the machine. The machine went straight back into the 2 minute drain cycle. It attempted to drain/pump remaining water, however this time machine successfully went through the 2 minute drain cycle. Machine stopped, counted down, click and I was able to open the door.
I put the washing through a rinse setting to see whether the machine would complete cycle. I can happily report that the machine completed the rinse cycle on the washing with no issues. I also put through another load to see if it would complete a full wash cycle, which I can report it happily did so.
This may have just saved me a grand$ :)
Good luck.
cheers

I have a whirlpool Model RAS7233KQ0 and it wont spin automatically


Possible that the timer module is faulty and there is no switching when the cycle proceeds to the spin mode.
Please check the timer module for any loose connection or dry joints on the module.

Will not rinse and will not empy water out and will not spin


Possible fault in the water level sensor. IF the sensor does not work then the program controller will not proceed to go to the next cycle as it thinks there is no water to rinse. similar problem when it does not spin or activate the drain.

My kenmore elite top load washer just flooded my laundry room. Apparently when the cycle went to rinse it continued to fill and not drain the old water out. What is wrong?


could be a bad pump, or clogged pump or when it went to rinse and the inlet valve opened it stuck open or never got the signal to stop meaning control board

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.


you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect
