My relatively new washer went up in smoke this evening. It was in the final spin cycle full of colors, and I noticed it was making a bit more noise than normal, and perhaps a little odd, but didn't pay much attention. I started smelling burning rubber, and by the time I got to the machine (and the fire alarm was going off) and opened the laundry room door, smoke rolled out in clouds. The machine was still running, with 1 minute left on the timer. I shut it off using the "pause" button. unloaded the clothes into the dryer (at least they're clean, i think) and unplugged the unit.
I guess I get to tear this thing apart. I"m exactly 46 days outside of my 1 year warranty. I don't see an adjustment mechanism for the belt in the diagram to take it apart.
