My washer smells like the belt is ready to go but looking at the diagram there is no belt. So what would cause this smell?
Answer Hi. Remove the back cover and feel the up and down and side to side play of the stator. Look at6 the front of the inner tub possibly rubbing on the back side of the belows where it is connected to the outer tub. If it has rub marks on the bellows then you will smell rubber burning. You will need to change the outer tub part # 3045ER0023A, the spider/shaft assy. part # 4434ER0003C, and the bellows part # 4986ER0006B if it has a hole in it. Clamp part # 4861ER2001E. Remove the rotor part # 4413ER1001C cover and see i9f there are rub marks on the inside magnets of stator. Replace if they are broken,cracked or loose. Look carefully at the stator windings to see if they are damaged as well. Has it been making a train sound when in spin instead of the jet sound? The outer tub part # 3045ER0023A as well will need changed. Remove the front lower pump cover and see if there is debris stuck in the pump part # 4681EA2001T impeller. If the impeller is loose on the shaft then it needs replaced. This may be the smell described. Thank You.
