Washing machine smoking!

My washing machine began smoking one day while on spin cycle. I freaked out and turned every breaker off on the electric panel since I, apparently, forgot how to read during this episode. Once the smoke cleared and my brain power returned I removed the front panel of the machine. After a quick look I decided I saw nothing wrong that I could fix. 24 hours later my brain had returned to normal functioning capacity so I decided to turn the power back on to the washer and see what happened. It was then that I noticed the smoke coming from a black cylinder on the front of the washer. I googled my washer and the VERY helpful diagrams from partselect.com came up showing me this was the capacitor. Since as mentioned previously my brain was now functional again I was able to determine this would be an easy fix, ordered the part, got it 24 hours later (!!!!!) with no special shipping, and installed it in 5 minutes. I feel smart today! Thanks Partselect.com!

Could smell burning rubber as it tried to spin, so figured it was the belt. No, I did no do it the hard way by removing the screws etc. I threaded the belt on the pulleys on one side, and slowly turned them, using my fingers to force thread the belt into place. Worked like a charm.

Basically the dryer would not turn on, after finding your site putting in the model number and description of my problem, I was able to trouble shoot and pretty fast I was able to determine the knob which controls the heat setting and time was cracked. I ordered the part and received it in a couple of days removed the old cracked knob and installed the new one no actual tools needed.

Once the part came in, I noticed that the new one sent to me was missing a circular piece (has arrow) attached to the knob (has line that lines up with arrow. No problem - I snapped the circular part from the old one and super glued it to the new knob and slid it on the post. So easy, even I did it.

Clothes were still Wet after Spin Cycle and I could smell something burning like Electrical type smell.

  • Customer: Mark from Keithville LA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set

Unfortunately this did not solve my problem. After further inspection I still have the burning smell and the washer cuts off after it Agitates for a few seconds then in a minute or so it will Agitate a few more seconds and then cut off again. I also replaced the control panel still have the same problem. I would say it is the motor but the motor works fine in Spin Cycle. As for the Pump replacement it is very simple just follow the instruction Video on this site and 15 minutes later your new pump is installed. I will keep the pump since my new Washer uses the same part. P.S. The burning smell is not coming from the belt. It's almost like some kind of circuit protector is tripping and then a few minutes later it lets the washer start again.

washer kept filling, won't aggetate

The pressure hose was my problem. It seemed to be connected and did not have any visible holes. When I blew in it there did not seem to be a leak. After trying some tubing from the hardware store that worked sometimes but not always I decided to get the manufacturer part. I realize now that the pressure has to be exact for the switch to work correctly. You can check the switch by blowing into the hose from the tub end, it should start to cycle once the pressure changes. If the switch works try replacing the hose even if you can't find a leak and use the manufacture part to get the correct pressure. Good Luck.

I tried putting the switch back with the hose on and it just did not work removed the hose installed switch and then put the hose and the plug in and on put cover back. worked ok. thank you.

Just pull up on the knob and remove the clip with needle nose pliars. Remove the knob, remove the dial and now install the new dial, the new knob and the replacement clip. The new knob comes with a new clip as well.

The pump would stick and not pump the water out from time to time. I have removed the pump before and cleaned it so to replace it wasn't much different for me. The instructions on the web site were pretty straight and easy to follow.

Couldn't get the agitator off by pulling up, then thought about it and got 2 carpenter claw hammers, inserted one on each side and puled up evenly on both and off she came. Sprayed the slots with WD Forty and popped the new on. THANKS saved us a lot of money!!!
