It can be a frustrating and sometimes expensive problem when a washer begins to smoke and smell like burning rubber. I did some research and provide a link to a similar question on our site.

Thanks for adding that model number John. I posted some access information for that type of washer in the images below. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. The burning rubber smell could be caused by the drive belt or the drain pump belt. This information may help you access components and check the belts. You can view a parts list diagram and order parts on this page: Maytag Washer Model LAT8214AAE Parts .

I hope that these initial tips help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to dig into this in the next day or two. Can you tell me what I should be looking for? Should I be able to turn the drum manually? Is there a "test" I can perform to diagnose whether it's a clutch or transmission issue? Is there a bearing that could be worn thus preventing it from spinning and then causing the belts to smoke? Any diagnostic advise is much appreciated.

A:

First, I recommend that you examine the belts to see which one (or both) have excessive wear indicating that they were likely rubbing on a stuck or jammed pulley. If the washer was not draining, check the drain pump for an obstruction or failure. I added some images below that show the operation and repair information for the transmission. That additional information may help you examine the washer and determine the cause of your failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

OK. The washer does drain. The belts have some wear, but they are 17 years old. Should the big center pully turn both ways? Mine only turns CCW. I have the transmission cover off. What type of wear should I be looking for internally?

Update. The transmission is all the way disassembled and it appears that nothing is worn. The pully does turn both ways, but turns hard CW. If I am understanding the workings of the machine correctly a CCW pully turn operates the agitator and a CW turn operates the spin cycle. It appears that the entire transmission turns during the spin cycle, right? I did not try the wash setting before I disassembled so I can't be sure if the wash cyle was working properly or not. I'm thinking now that maybe the tub bearing may be worn because it is so hard to turn. Do you have any repair images for the tub bearing?

How freely should the tub spin?

A:

The direction of rotation (viewing from the top of the washer) is counterclockwise for spin and clockwise for agitation. You may be looking at the rotation from under the pulley. The whole transmission will rotate in the spin cycle. When the pulleys are removed, the spin basket should turn relatively easy. If you have a problem with the bearing, then that component will need to be replaced. I provided information in the image below about that bearing. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The failure is likely a blown fuse which was likely caused by a faulty check switch. The fuse is located under the console. If the check switch and lid switch are not opening and closing in the correct sequence, it will cause the fuse to blow.

The part number of the fuse is now substituted for a new lid switch assembly with fuse. The part number for the new lid switch assembly is 2200168. It can be ordered at Sears PartsDirect

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 .

Q:

Why won't my washer fill?

A:

You did not provide any details indicating if the washer timer was replaced because it wasn't filling with water to begin with or it quit filling after the new timer was installed. You also did not include the model number of your washer so I will not be able to provide any model specific troubleshooting information, only general. Generally speaking if your washer will operate in the drain and spin mode, the failure is likely the water level pressure switch providing the water supply is on and connected to the washer. If the washer will not operate in the drain and spin cycles, the failure could be the lid switch.

I recommend resubmitting your question with the model number and additional details for model specific troubleshooting assistance.
