Maytag LA612 acrid smell

3 posts in this topic

My maytag washer produced a very strong smell (something a bit like burning brakes) in the middle of a wash cycle.  I wasn't home but the wife freaked out, turned it off and unplugged it.  It seems to be running ok now, and running it through a couple of unloaded cycles doesn't seem to reproduce any issues.  Any advice on what to check?

tip the washer back and lean it against the wall.  Get under it and check the belts.
