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:
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.

Re: 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.

Your motor is getting overheated in wash cycle. if you turn it off for about 15 minutes and start it back up in rinse cycle will it work ? If yes, then motor is overheated. A sign that the motor is over working its self and time for a new motor.
Hi tuck just read your posting.Now on the low whirring noise on the start of the rinse cycle ,Is it when the machine is draining the water or filling with water.If the noise happens when the machine is draining then I think either your pump has something slowing it down or it is faulty.Please look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a red or black fan .If you do then this is your pump.If you don't see a fan you must have the newer style of pump.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you rectify this problem
the smell is your clutch and the lack of draining is a clogged washer drain protector. see these at www.repairclinic.com drain protector is part 541811 and clutch is 2670. go there enter model number and scroll down to the red 100 click it and look for these part numbers.
First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.
Sounds like coupling gears between transmission and motor... they did away with the belt and went direct drive with coupling gears. It can pump water out but nothing else. water pump is mounted to front of motor is why it will pump water out.
