I have a ~15 yo Amana belt drive washer, model LW6153WM, that works well until it gets to the spin cycle. At that point it makes a loud medium high pitched squeal for a few seconds then shuts off. If we can get to it in time we then push the control knob to stop the process, otherwise it shuts off itself. When we come back an hour or so later and pull the knob we can hear the squeal again before it catches and continues in the cycle...sometimes. At other times we have to go away and try again later. We are down to being able to wash one load a day. I replaced the belt a few months ago...still good. Drain pump works well, but when I removed the motor I noticed burned/melted black rubber on much of the top of the pump. Is this fixable or is it toast? If it's fixable, what do I do next? Thanks in advance for your help in (hopefully) lowering my frustration level.
