Washing Machines - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues
Washer making a noise in spin cycle and smoke coming out of drum
Make sure the drum is actually spinning during that cycle (I bet it isnt).
If not, the clutch is slipping- I had this happen years ago. It's in the bottom of the washer as part of the gear box. When the clutch cant hold, it slips when the motor kicks into high speed for the spin. That slipping creates the smoke.
I was able to replace mine, but I had it disassembled in my garage and I like to fix things. The clutch for mine was less than $30 at the time. Been running great since.

I bought twin-tub washing machine after 3 times the spinner doesnt work but the washing machine still does- i am a senior with arthritis in my hands & i cant wring water out after wash
The first obvious question is, did you buy it new, reconditioned or is it a used machine and if it is a used machine did you buy it from a shop or other regular business or did you buy it privately?
If you bought it from a regular business; if it is new or reconditioned there will be a warranty and you shouldn't hesitate contacting them.
If it was a used machine from a business you could still expect a repair after such a short space of time. Your purchase would constitute a contract they would have breached if the machine failed to fulfil its function for a reasonable time. A reasonable time would depend on the price paid...
If you bought it privately there is no automatic protection but you should inform the seller of your problem as they might be willing to help.
I guess there isn't much point worrying too much about what might be wrong as you probably wouldn't want to repair it yourself. One thing I do know about twin tubs and that is the spinner mostly has a much smaller capacity than the washer and they break easily when overloaded.

My special sweater detergent suggests not to rinse. how do I skip rinse cycle on my front load Samsung WF455
I suggest you read the operating instructions of your machine. I don't know of such a programme - most programmes include a rinse and spin though there is usually a delicates programme that is a short low temperature wash, leaves the tub full of water (to decrease creasing) until the programmer is advanced and then a short rinse and low speed spin.
Not sure what is special about a special sweater detergent except maybe it is so mild it might behave like soap and contains a fabric conditioner - hence no rinsing. Seems it could be a gimmick...
Best way of washing treasured woollens remains hand washing using soap if possible and rinse with fabric conditioner. Pull into shape while wet and dry flat.
