    I have the same problem. Press start and it only hums or very soft buzz. Removed drain hose from pump and squeezed black rubber bag ??? and water flowed through pump just fine. Was able to drain hose and it is clear. With unit on drain/spin cycle with drain hose off, sometimes the pump runs for about 3 seconds, no water come out, then stops and only the hum from something other than pump continues. Could this be the motor controller? Unit is only two years old.

You may need a motor controller, which is covered under the warranty, but of course you have to pay for labor and diagnostic which means you pay...
If you're handy go buy the controller, many sources, and put it in. It will cost you around $139, but if you use the warranty it will cost you around $250....labor and diagnostics.

The buzz or hmmm noise is probably coming form a clogged drain pump assy, something has gotten into it and is preventing normal operation. youll need to remove the lower acess panel (2 screws aong hte bottom of the front of unit) from there youll gain acess to the drain pump in the rught front corner, pull off the hoses and check for obstructions, even look within the white pump impeller housin gas well. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!!!ALWAYS LIVE WIRES TO DRAIN PUMP ASSY

My whirpool duel washer agitates or washes but


have you replaced the motor control. i had this happen 1 year ago and had to have it replaced. i am having the same problem and have done some testing but have not found anything else. you can buy this part from whirpool for about $160 delivered to your home. this is exactly how it acted the 1st time it went out. some loads would spin out great and the next load would be wet.

Machine won't spin


When washing does the unit rotate in both directions ? If NO, the problem (likely) is the motor/brushes. If YES, insure you're not overloading or using non-HE detergent or more commonly refered to as "regular" detergent/soap. (soap is a very bad thing for these front load units).

We have a WFL 2090 UC Bosch Axxis Front end load washer. When we use the Power Wash option, the clothes are soaking wet when the cycle is completed. Are we supposed to use the Power Temp or Power Boost...


Are you sure that your washer spins? that your pump drains? You should not have this problem. Do you load your laundry properly (too much laundry- should not be more than 3/4 of the diameter of the drum)?

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

WMA46 stopped woking power off mid cycle


hi there the problem you have sounds like the motor has shorted out causing the pcb to blow, sadly this is a costly repair and is usualy not worth repairing as you will need a new motor and pcb
