Major Appliances/admiral WASHER model AAV8000AWW


my washer won't drain or spin, I was washing a load of laundry and it started making a loud noise like hard plastic cards on bicycle spokes. then it just stopped working and smelled like burning plastic. am willing to try to fix it myself but can't even figure out how to get it apart.

Drain some of the water out of the unit and then pull the machine away from the wall about two feet.  Next, tilt the machine back leaning against the wall and laying on the floor (like working on a car, crawl underneath the washer.  Inspect the three pulley and the belt.  Does anything look burnt?  Turn each pulley by hand... Any noise from any of them  Let me know which one....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
