In Topic: Whirlpool Duet dryer smells

01 May 2014 - 11:55 PM

It's not the smell of death, though-- it's certainly mildew.  Like as clothes warm up on the body it gets worse, or if you shove your face in a towel while drying.  I *thought* maybe it was leaving clothes in the washer overnight and transferring them to the dryer, but as I suspected it, I both rushed to get things to the dryer and smelled the clothes coming out of the washer and didn't smell it.

 

I have had rodents of unusual size die under my house and in a wall.  My car once broke down in the mountains by a select piece of former deer.  I know this smell. If it was that smell, we would have burned the clothes or maybe the whole house down by now. ;)

I have an older washer (you guys have helped me repair it here) that's a top loader, in exposing the drum I didn't see anything/smell anything, but just for the hell of it, I'll run a cleaner through.

 

PDuff, I realize this isn't my model but would I see the steam parts taking off the top panel, or do I need to go farther?  I was watching this:  


In Topic: Kenmore washer eating couplers

It will not agitate or spin. Motor running, no connection to the transmission. I bailed out most of the water and then up yet on spin with the lid latch pushed down to get the very last of the water. Exact same before symptoms, and yeah, the rubber dust. I am sure the coupler rubber is going to be in 2 parts.

I ordered from repairclinic. Both times.

My washer appears to drain during the rinse cycle, not spin, from watching it function normally. I can't turn the dial to spin and get it to drain, you hear it start to try, some water go down the drain, maybe a cup or two, and then everything stops.



I will stop being stupid... I forgot until tonight about the lid latch. I bailed most and got the rest out that way.

Yes, past flush, checked the mounts and they had all appeared in good condition with the July switch. I can turn the agitator like normal with my hand when its off, normal resistance, and brake works.

I haven't opened it up again, but I got the same sound that made me go to the machine over half done laundry, and a quick test underneath revealed black rubber dust.
