Burning smell and light smoking

After pulling the front panel off the washer, I determined the source of the smell and smoke to be the motor. I reviewed partselect.com troubleshooting page for burning smell and found that the motor was the second highest cause for this occurence. The first was a worn belt. I was certain it was the motor, but double checked the belt. The belt is still good. My next step was to watch the video on partselect.com to determine if this was a project within my capabilities. After viewing the video, I placed my order with standard shipping on Thursday at 10pm est. The motor arrived on Tuesday evening via UPS at 6:00 pm. I started the installation at 9:30 pm after the kids were put to bed. The dismantling and reinstallation was exactly as viewed on the video. By 10 pm I was reinstalling the front panel. This was two weeks ago with an average of 2-3 loads a day and not another issue with the burning smell or smoke. Partselect.com saved me a couple hundred dollars in appliance repair service costs and several hundred if I would have purchased a new washer. I will definately keep partselect.com in my favorites for the next appliance repair.

I had some expert advise on what the problem was so that made it easier to consentrate on the fix. I was surprised to find so much information on this web page. Getting the right part ordered was also very easy. The repair instructions given by other people was all correct, tiling the machine to get the belt off, removing the back access panel, was all correct and made it easy. The hard part was getting the machine out of the small wash room and into the garage where I had room to work on it. A good dolly and a wooden ramp came in handy . A word of advice woud be to operate the hot & cold water faucets on & off every year or so to be sure they work easily when the time comes, maybe an emergency. After 12 years I was worried my valves would give me a problem. (.they didnt).

Initially, it was uncertain how to remove the front panel. There were hidden clips that I was unaware of. But, the video on partsselect's website was excellent. It gave me the confidence exactly what to component to purchase and how to repair my washer. My repair was identical to the drain pump video and had no issues what so ever.

Disconnected hoses and power cord, pulled washer into hall area, laid towels down to soak up any residual water and tilted washer onto its face or front side. Removed lower panel on back of washer with three screws to expose pump and hoses, removed belt from underneath, removed three screws from pump base with nutdriver and two hoses with spring clamps with pliers. Installed hoses with spring clamps with pliers, slid pump into place per alignment pins on the base, installed the three screws on the pump base with nutdriver, installed rear panel with three screws with nutdriver.

Replaced water in-flow valve it's fixed! Removing the washer case to replace the part would have been the most painful job of all. I used dremel cutter to cut a hole in the back panel to access to the valve rather than trying to figure out how to remove the washer case! It works fine! Part was delivered in time. Thanks!

The repair was very simple. We got the part faster than we thought we would had our son hold the washer on a tilt and put on the drive belt, took 2 times because it was twisted but we got on. The washer is much quieter and it was worth the shipping fee.

Washer jumping around during spin cycle

I used Utube to search for Performa Washing machine jumping around. You will find several videos that will be extreamly helpful in understanding exactly how to go about changing the sunbber ring. The snubber ring is fairly easy to change out. Quarters were used to hold the springs apart so they can be removed. Push the tub forward and away from the spring you want to remove. Install several quarters in the spring. Use as many as you can get in. Then pull the tub toward you and the spring can be removed from the tub. There are six springs to remove. I just left them laying in place at the bottom of the washing machine base. There are videos on utube also of using the quarters to remove the springs. Of course if you have spring removal tool for this purpose so much the better. I didn't have one. Good luck with your install. MB in TN

Used the testimonial found on your web site. Pulled off top flipped machine on its back removed springs from tub. Once tub removed loosened square drive nuts part way until snubber ring could be removed. Installed new ring and reassembled. To install agitator be removing bolt inside broken agitator auger. Easy to do saved alot of $$$ by doing myself. Thanks!!
