Red face Maytag Washer Smells Like Burnt Rubber
Model Number: A305   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My washer is about 25 years old and just recently I smelled burnt rubber. When it happened, it was probably overloaded with cloths and in the middle of the spin cycle. Both the agitator belt and the pump belt are not frayed, cracked or broken however they have a lot of slack on them. At first I thought the slack caused too much friction on the pulleys which lead to the overheating and odor. Then I ran a small load of cloths and had the same odor. The machine completed the whole wash and spin cycle fine. I don't know how tight a new belt should be and I know the motor provides the belt tension but before I purchase new belts, I was wondering if anyone knew what else could cause this odor.
