Washer has a burn smell sometimes
 
Hi. Sometimes when I turn on my washer there is a clicking sound like a switch is trying to switch on and off and the cycle won't run. I turn it off and on and wait and it will work many times but sometimes there is a burning smell and I just turn it off for an hour or so and try later. It usually works then but I know I need a new part. Do you think its the timer?

It is probably not the timer, but we need a model number to make any additional diagnosis.

Thanks

Unfortunately it can be a bunch of things.

Use the videos in this library

to open it up and check out the pump, coupling and see if the transmission is hanging up in some manner. (I am assuming that it fills).

It can also be a problem with the capacitor (unusual), the motor or the timer. If you cannot find anything wrong you are going to have to just start replacing parts and see which one fixes it.

Sorry not to be more definitive, it's the nature of your problem.
