Have not see an answer yet, except that you are checking the model number.
That was about half hour ago.
I'm sorry I was out some computer issues, I'm back now, the smoke coming out is most likely the belt that's burned up, this can be caused by a few different reasons, the most common however is something either jammed in the pump or the tub is not moving freely for some reason there are two screws in the front panel on the bottom, remove those and pull out on the bottom of the front panel and it will come off the top clips, take a look at the belt and see if it has burned up in one spot or possibly even broken, let me know, thanks, Bryan
the belt is number 15 on this diagram,
The belt is broken !!!
Do I have to remove parts to get a new belt on ?
Just a personal note: You're the 2nd Bryan I have run across in my 70 years !!! Everyone wants to spell it with an 'i' -- but those in the olde country (Scotland) always spell it with a 'y', until just recently.
Water is mostly out, now. The little would be removed via the spin cycle.
When I turned it on there was no smoking -- that must have been the belt burning before -- it did smell like rubber now that I think about it.
Pulley turns fairly easy, no stopping like there is anything holding it up.
I would say that the transmission has NOT locked up.
