I have a GE washing machine #WJSR2080T6WW. A couple of weeks ago it didn't spin my clothes. The water drains out, and it agitates the clothes. My hubby replaced the belt, figuring that was the cheapest/easiest place to start. It worked fine for 2 loads and then didn't spin. He thought he maybe hadn't tightened it enough, and 're-fixed' it. We got about 5 loads, and the last one didn't spin, and had a 'burnt oil' smell in the garage.

I ignored it until yesterday, and tried an empty load. It spun. I then washed a small load, and it spun (but the clothes were a little more wet than they should be). There was a very faint 'oil' smell. I tried another small load, and it worked the same, but there was a faint burning rubber smell along with the faint burnt oil smell.

Does it sound like it could be the motor burning out, or something else?

And is it something a fairly good DIY guy can fix? With 3 kids, I have a ton of laundry to do!! Thanks!

** Does it sound like it could be the motor burning out, or something else? **

The motor might be a possibility... or the belt or clutch burning. Did anyone check to make sure nothing was stuck between the tubs and maybe hampering its movement on spin?

BTW. IF the motor is needed, GE has redesigned it and it no longer uses the original clutch which could be problematic in the past anyway.
