Why won't my Maytag washer agitate and smell like burning rubber?

The most likely failure is either just a worn drive belt or a gear case failure. This type of symptom will require a technician to diagnose and repair. You could try replacing the belt but if it happens again the gear case will likely have to be replaced.

The belt can be replaced without using any tool. Lean the washer back to access the belts underneath the base. You can roll the belts off and on. The part number of the drive


is 211125 .
