Washer Repair / Re: LG Washer WM2016CW/01 Smoking - No Errors

Thanks Scrapiron!

I will check to see if that seems like it could be the cause of the issue, but I'm not sure I'm up to the task of replacing that boot, even if it was the cause.....it looks like a bigger job than I'm ready to tackle.   I've removed the boot from the door several times, but removing it from the tub/drum looks a lot more involved.
 :thanks:

Before you tear it down, look at the door boot. Check for rubber powder in the "fold" and check the gap between the basket and boot for excessive wear. They may be getting clothing caught/rubbing in the gap. That can create what customers describe as a hot or burning odor. It may just need a new door boot and/or customer instruction on proper loading.

Washer Repair / LG Washer WM2016CW/01 Smoking - No Errors
« Last post by JumpinJackFlash on December 05, 2016, 10:41:17 AM »
I'm trying to help some friends with an LG Washer that is occasionally smoking, but it otherwise works fine and is throwing no error codes.
I took it apart the other day, but could find nothing obviously wrong, and nothing smelled.    I've worked with enough electronic devices to know that the smell from a burning component usually doesn't just go away.....that stink tend to stick around for a long time.    That, and the fact that is working 'okay', leads me to believe that there might be something caught in-between the inner and outer tubs and when it spins, it's generating enough heat to create the smell / smoke.     BTW - the smoke is inside the tub area when they open the washer door.

What do you folks think?    Does my 'theory' even sound possible?   This washer is 7 years old and gets a LOT of use......at a Veterinary clinic.   I'm not too comfortable about the idea of taking the tubs apart to check my idea, unless it's not as difficult as I think it might be.

I've repaired this washer for them several times, but I'm wondering if it's finally time to take it out back and put it out of it's (and my) misery.   

I appreciate any thoughts you can provide.

I didn't think it would be the rollers because it still made the noise after I removed the drive belt and ran it.  Sounds like I need to dig deeper.

Wow I replaced one about 6 months ago that the board was fried.Burned spot in the center of the board. You see it with electronic boards all the time so I thought nothing of it.
