Same thing happened to us. The problem is a clogged drain filter, and it is very easy to fix. It involves removing 3 screws, and about 1/2 hour to fix the problem. I've outlined the steps below. FRIDGIDAIRE LTF2140ES3 - 269ae44.jpg355ce5c.jpgbcbc7d8.jpgfdc1390.jpg6abec1e.jpg

Reverse the steps to put everything back together, and you'll be back in business!

I used solution 1, but also looked after the filter and found a nintendo DS stylus which is what was getting stuck in the pump. It's like a small pencil and passed through the holes in the filter.

My samsung top loader will only drain


Very easy repair. By dropping the hose gravity takes over allowing the water to run out. The buzzing noise is the propeller on your pump jammed.(Brawires,coins,hairpins) < common causes.. STEP 1:Drop hose down to remove water from machine STEP 2:Lean machine forward on a 45,rest machine on a chair. STEP 3:Bottom left of machine is a round black cap,remove the cap(turn anti clockwise) STEP 4: Put your fingers in the pump and pull out the coins,hairpins etc from pump. STEP 5:Turn propeller to make sure it turns freely,put the round cap back on then your done. Thanks

I have a Kenmore 600 washermachine it won't spin or rinse. It would fill up with water and go all the way through the cycle until it got to the last rinse cycle and just stop and make a buzzing noise...


hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse


best of luck

p.s the buzzing noise is the water pump humming because it can not spin the problem is definitly your water pump have it repplaced and it will work fine

please take the time to rank my reply if your happy with it.

Fridgidaire front load will not empty fabric


Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.
Best regards, W/D

Me Estate washing machine, when started fills to specified water level then, it makes a buzzing noise then the buzz quits and nothing happens. Machine won't agitate or drain, just buzz then buzz quits.


sounds like you have a problem with your water supply to washer. the buzzing noise sounds like it's the valve opening to receive water but nothing going in. check supply hoses and water taps

Buzzing - will not spin or drain water


This noise is probably the pump trying to start but will most likely be obstructed.Drain the machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or bowl and then remove blockage.
