Maytag washer smokes
« on: May 03, 2010, 09:47:52 AM »
We just moved into our new home about 3 months ago and with the home we got the appliances. The washer and dryer aren't that old, but they were in good condition. Within a month of or move, we got a 3ft flood in the basement, which apparently started to affect our washer.

We washed our clothes once after the flood, but the next time, the washer started to smoke when it reached the spinning cycle.
We're not sure if the dryer still works since we haven't tried it after the washer started to act up.

So, we waited about week and half to try it again, thinking that it might of been left over water from flood, but it did it again.

What can possibly be?

I read some other posts and they mention it could be the belt, it could be the motor..
We are debating whether we should repair it or completely replace it, since the models aren't that new and it might just run for a little bit longer til it breaks again.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Model LAT9416AAE

Hi,

Here is the service manual for your washer.

http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/16010373%20(16001145).pdf

I would try to run the washer in the spin cycle with out the belts on it and see if the motor smokes or not.

If the motor only smokes with belts on it then I would replace the belts. If the motor smokes without the belts on the washer I would replace the motor.

I looked up your model number and found that it uses motor # 201807 and belts # 12112425.
