Whirlpool washer top load
Posted 07 August 2005 - 05:28 AM
trying to finish laundry- the machine goes through all cycles, but on the spin i start smelling a burning odor and the machine just stops spinning.
i looked under the machine and then put the machine on spin cycle, it wouldn't spin until i moved the coupler. while spinning i drop of oil came out of the transmission gear box.
was just wondering if anyone might suggest if that might mean i have to get a new transmission gear box.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

Start by removing the motor and inspecting the coupler.
Does the motor make a growling noise during spin? Getting really hot? Lights dimming or fluttering a little? If yes to any of these, then you'll want to verify that the motor is not getting two of it's speed windings energized simultaneously. Wiring diagram and meter and needed for this. Wiring diagram is inside the back panel. Meter help here:

there is no noise on motor, timer is new, coupler is ok, machine works ok with small loads only.

the timer goes to the spin cycle, but nothing happens- i get a burning smell.
coupler looks good, no humming noises, i hear the timer working.

when the tub was filled with clothes and water, I opened the door and pushed down on the door switch with my finger while pushing clockwise on the tub and it started spinning and finishing the wash cycle.
