Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I know how frustrating it can be to have issues with washers and dryers, especially when the clothes are piling up. Hopefully I can help.

I was able to pull up the parts list and diagrams for this Maytag washer. My records show it was manufactured around year 2000. I suspect the burning rubber you are smelling has something to do with one of the belts on the unit. This particular Maytag has two belts, a pump belt and a drive belt. There are also several pulleys within that could be causing the issue, especially if they are seizing up. The best thing that could occur at this point would be to open the unit up, and visually inspect the drive system which includes the pulleys and belts. I would imagine the issue is stemming back to one of those items, which are relatively easy and cost effective to replace.

There is a difference in the parts based upon the series of the washer, the first two numbers of your serial number will identify what series it is, so be sure to have that information before ordering parts.

For your convenience, I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can view and purchase any applicable parts for the washer. Just click the blue link below to be directed to the PartsDirect page.

Thank you! What is the easiest way to open the top? Are there clips in the front as I see in other models? Thanks again

Thank you for the response and for using ManageMyLife.com. I was able to find some instructions you may refer to on gaining access to the belt for the Maytag.

  1. Pull the Maytag washer away from the wall and unplug the electrical cord from the outlet. Tilt the machine back toward the wall and place a prop rod or something similar underneath to hold the washer up, since you must work on it from the bottom of the machine.
  2. Loosen the bolts on the motor of the Maytag washer enough so that you can pull the motor forward, using a socket and ratchet. Remove the Maytag drive belt from the pulleys, if it is still attached. Place the new belt on the pulleys. Push the motor toward the back of the machine and tighten the bolts using a socket and ratchet.
  3. Remove the prop rod from under the Maytag washer and lower it to the floor. Plug the power cord into the outlet and push the washing machine back to the wall. Turn the washer on to test it by setting it to a spin cycle and making sure it spins.

So instead of gaining access through the top, you will want to prop the unit up while tilting it backwards to gain access through the base. Just use extreme caution while propping the unit so it doesn't fall when you are underneath performing the repair. Hopefully this will assist with a seamless inspection/install.

If you have any further questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

I may need a few additional details to help you with this problem. If the washer will agitate then the motor is likely okay. If the water drains out then the motor is reversing and the timer is likely okay. If the water drains out and the machine tries to spin but won't I suspect the clutch and/or basket drive is likely the problem. Can you turn the basket by hand? Please reply with any additional details for further assistance.

One thing to try first is to remove the belts from the motor and pump and see if the motor will run okay with the belt off. The brake or bearing can seize causing the motor to burn the belt. This may be the smoke you see and smell. If the motor still starts and shuts down then the problem is likely with the timer or motor. From the description you give the motor is working in the agitation cycle so it is most likely okay. Try removing the belts and let me know if the motor runs okay.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. If the dial is not matching up with the cycles on the console, the problem is either a broken dial or timer. The dial is keyed to fit onto a pin on the timer shaft. The image below has the instructions for removing the knob and dial. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Remove the knob and dial. If the dial is not broken, I suspect the timer is the problem. If you need to order parts for the washer you can do so from out parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
