Hi Mr. Samurai Master,

Stamped on the back of the washer frame is 3953250 and on the Schematic is says part number 3953250 (same number) so I guess this is the model number.   So this morning I turned it on, jumped in the shower, and when I was finished showering I smelled something burning!  My ole nose led me to my disappointingly dead washer - full of water.  Turning the knob did nothing.  It didn't even shrug an apology or anything!  The outlet does have electricity and the lid switch checked out for continuity (meter tones when the lid is closed). 

So any suggestions???

Hi - If you need any more assistance, I'm not sure of that model number. Can you check that again for me right off the stamped tag on the machine and the brand name? Thanks.
Unless specifically asked otherwise, remember to test with the unit unplugged, or breaker off.

Ok the original number I gave was actually printed on the top edge of the top of the washer on the back side, but is on the schematic.  Stamped on the back is the number 3356472.  By the way, it has a solid back on the washer.  I tried attching the schematic, but it was too large a file (10,919kb).

We need the brand and model number please. Do not believe Whirlpool washers have the schematic on the top back of the washer so do  not know where to have you look for this tag.

Is there any way to obtain/find the model number other that what is stamped or printed on the machine back?  It says Kenmore series 90 on the front.

There we go, Kenmore made by Whirlpool if it is a top loader.  60, 70,80,90 are just product lines, how many fancy features. Open the washer lid half way and the tag is on the washer between the lid hinges.

Remove the case and see if something is in the water pump, jamming the motor.  Or the transmission could have locked up, jamming the motor.  Or the motor could have fried itself.  Or the motor capacitor could have melted down. Lots of possibilaties here, need to remove the case first to see if you can tell where the smell is coming from.
