An overheating motor can switch itself off. When it cools it will restart. And overheat again.....If the motor is hot to touch (unplugged, of course) That would verify the problem. Good luck......Nomess

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

Washer seems to be stuck on spin. Has slight oil/rubber burning smell. Will only advance out of spin if you manually turn the knob to the next step.


The timer is bad and needs to be replaced. if you continue to run it this way you will need to replace the motor coupling real soon. That is where the burning rubber smell coming from.

I was washing wool that has a lot of lint and the washing machine stopped spinning and smelled like hot rubber. Is there a filter to clean in the washer?


The burning rubber smell is probably the belt. It is probably broken into. Remove the front of the washer on a top loader to access the belt at the bottom where the motor is.

Burned rubber smell after replacing motor coupler, otherwise runs


The most common cause for the coupler failing is a bad gearcase. The machine should go through a neutral drain before the spin if it doesn't drain the water first it over works the motor trying to spin a full tub. No belt on this one, odor could be from the motor or the coupler starting to shred again.

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.

Whirlpool top loader won't spin


If you are lucky you need a set of clutches about $45. If you are unlucky you would need a transmission.

Since it spins after you help it, I am guessing clutches.

Will not spin and has a burning rubber smell


sounds like a loose belt, or worse, a stuck pulley..

tip the unit back about 30 degrees, with power off, and unplugged, and inspect the belt..I suggest something solid to hold it up(not your hand or someone elses)...and see if you have free play there, or it's frozen
