Burning Smell from Washing Machine


If the machine is new, and you have been using the machine for less than 3 months, occasionally you may smell a 'burning' smell.

Mostly this phenomenon occurs as it is a new product: when the product has been used for longer, the smell will gradually disappear.
As a washing machine consists of plastics, rubbers etc, a unique odour can be temporarily trapped inside the product
