Hey, so I'm having some problems with a lemon I bought from a local appliance repair place. 5 days out of warranty and it broke, they refuse to offer any kind of extension and I couldn't afford it without that so it's up to me to fix it.
Its a stylemaster 4217140.
So the issue is it's filling, but won't spin or drain, and there is a terrible burning smell. Now some googling suggested that the lid switch might be busted, but that doesn't account for the burning smell. It also looks okay to me when I take the case off.
So I figure maybe something is wrong with the motor, I get down there and take the motor off, clutch seems okay and the pump seems alright too, but I don't know enough about motors to know if that's shot itself or of it's something deeper in there. I don't see any exposed belts, which is what I expected made the burning smell.
I have almost complete photos of the break down of anyone things it would help.
