    I am not familiar with fixing this stuff, but I have the same issue, how do you check whether the faucet is on (I am guessing you don';t mean just any faucet in the house) and how do I check screens inside the fill valve?

Washer didnt drain all the way and now i keep gettin a code. n the light for the door lock wont come on


If water is in tub and the control tries to drain tub but water doesn't drain, then the unit will not operate. Most LG have a drain pump clean out located behind the access door on lower side of washer. Open the door and you will see a black tube with a cap and a round knob. First, get a bucket, pull the black tube slightly out and remove cap. The water in the tub will start to drain and you may have to fill bucket many times to get all water out. Next, unscrew knob and a little screen will pull out. Inspect this screen and inside of pump chamber. Your looking for any thing that could block the pump. If pump hums and still doesn't drain, the drain pump is more than likely bad. Good Luck

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

Washer makes very loud humming noise in spin cycle but does not spin..I removed clothes thinking it was very heavy and it did spin out but when I put clothes back it returned w/no spin and loud noise..now...


Either the control board or the motor has gone bad. Here is the diagnostic mode to run to look for the errors.
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST: • On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin. • On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. • Press Pause/Cancel to turn off LEDs. • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons. 1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality. 2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment. 3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment. 4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment. 5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will activate. 6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened. 7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble. 8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and spin (leakage test). 9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. The drain pump and door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. SAFETY WARNING: If power is removed during this test, the door can be opened. To prevent injury, DO NOT put your hands inside when the tub is rotating. 10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code.

Even humming sound made when washer starts continous


Most likely a motor or solenoid has a loose coil or its magnetic field is vibrating a nearby piece of steel. If it hums all of the time except when the washer is filling, it is the timer or main motor. If it hums only when the washer is filling, it is one of the water valves (you can isolate by selecting hot or cold instead of warm for one of the cycles).

The timer motor is on the control panel right behind the cycle select knob. The main motor is under the tub. If the main motor is humming, it may be overloaded, but in that case, the humming should diminish as the motor gets up to speed.

Frigidare washer hums loudly and doesn't fill with water


I figured out what was wrong with it. We narrowed it down to the pump or the timer. We determined that since the machine was spinning when the lid was down and it was spinning no matter where the dial was set, we figured it had to be the timer.

We did have one issue getting the dial off the washer. The trick to it was to remove the pin from the middle of the timer and the dial just came right off.

It was an easy fix really and the timer cost us $95.00 Hope this helps someone else in the future.

Washer ax6245wv0 roper washer


  Sounds like something in pump.  This is causing motor to hum and not turn.  Motor is going off on thermal overload.  This is why the humming stops.  It may be possible for you to tilt washer back and access pump.  Remove clip on bottom and top and pull pump off motor.  Try and turn pump.  Remove hoses and see if you can see obstruction.
