does this drain? when you advance it?
Don't know if this went before, so here's a repeat:
new info on behavior:
agitation starts ok. after about 30 seconds, light smoke appears in the cabinet (can't tell where it's coming from). motor feels warm, but I can't get my fingers behind the splash guard. After about 2 minutes (and more smoke) the machine just stops. RH side of the cabinet feels very warm, and I can almost get a finger to detect "hot" close to the motor in the case. Is the motor loosing its smoke?
OK. One more question:
I replaced the snubber ring 4- 5 months ago. When I replaced it, I vacuumed up a lot of white plastic shredded snubber ring. I notice that snubber ring dust is accumulating again. I will probably replace the ring again when I replace the motor (cheaper now than later). Any tips to reduce the rate of wear?
