Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine does not run, gives humming noise, right from start of cycle.
A washing machine is a simple product.
When trouble shooting anything you have to know what is supposed to do and what is it not doing.
At the begining of a washing machine cycle the machine fills with water until a switch is made telling the machine it is full and ready to agitate. Since it never fills it will stick in that part of the cycle.
When you start a cycle and no water enters the drum you have one of three problems:
1. The water supply is shut off.
2. The solenoid valve that supplies the water is not opening.
3. No power to the washing machine.
Since you are hearing a hum, the machine seems to be trying to activate that valve,
The humming noise comes from the electromagnetic field that activates the valve,
