Our 7-8 year old General Electric washing machine on start suddenly shot out many sparks and smoke from its rear and burning rubber smell all over our laundry room. It shut off by the help button. A service technician came soon and moved and unplugged it and said it was the worst burnout he had ever seen. He said the parts to repair are 1000 dollars. Luckily there were no flammable materials around or on the machine or they would likely have caught fire. No bodily injuries occurred.
