Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Won't spin When it's in spin cycle, it won't spin but the pump is running, at least that is what it sounds like (humming and slruping sound). All other functions are working (fill, agitate, drain at all settings).

    I have a 417 model type with the same problem. The first time it happened about 3 months ago I did a lot of research and found the maker had problems with the electronic motor control being susceptible to electronic noize. I replaced the control with an upgrade but now it has happened again. I think one or more of the mechanical or motor components is wearing out and causing a repeat failure. Hope someone in the repair buisness on this site knows.

Washer agitates but won't spin or drain - makes a humming/buzzing sound during those cycles


check the pump,could have a sock or something stuck in it.usually i would say to check the lid switch,open and close the lid,if you don't hear a clicking sound the washer won't go into spin or drain but if you're hearing a humming sound that's the motor watch this video
http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=DwV71h86Gxw it will show you how to get to the pump.pop off the two clips that hold the pump on and remove the pump just pull it backwards off of the motor shaft,now get a piece of wire and strip the ends on it,2 to 3 inches long,unplug the washer before you start to work on it,get your jumper wire and stick it into the wire harness that connects to the lid switch, don't plug it into the ground plug it into the other two wires not the green wire,i'm pretty sure it's the two outside wires and the green ground is in the middle,plug the washer back in and pull the timer out in the spin cycle,if the motor runs and spins you know something is stuck in the pump or the pump is bad,but just to make sure it's not the lid switch and it is the pump put the pump back on and start the washer again if you hear the humming it's the pump or before you pull the pump jump out the lid switch and see if it spins and drains,if it doesn't then pull the pump so you don't have to stick the bad pump back on the washer,all the lid switch is for is so the washer will not run in the spin with the lid open and some washers won't even agitate if the lid is open by using the jumper wire we are bypassing the lid switch to check the washer while it's apart.hope this helps and if you can let us know how you make out so if someone else reads this with the same problem it will help them out too.

My frigidaire LTF6700FSO will not spin


Your symptom sounds like a jammed drain pump. Was it spinning and then stopped before the spin cycle should have ended or did it not begin spinning when it should have?

Final spin cycle I get sud error code or f2, water mostly drained but no spin. When I restart the spin cycle just starts to spin then stops, sounds like it drains some more water then makes a small...


Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is

running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump




The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

I have a fisher and Paykle GW612 washing machine, it won;t drain the water and won;t do the spin cycle. It now is making a huming noise. I think it is the motor that has an issue?


There should be a tech sheet located underneath the control panel that has the procedure for putting the machine in "diagnostic mode" and you can easily run the water pump by itself. Listen for a "hum" sound- If you hear a hum instead of a running water pump, then something is keeping that pump from turning for sure.

If this is the case, then you would need to check your water pump. It is located underneath the machine in the right front corner (as viewed from the front of the machine)
There is a black plastic external cooling fan impeller that you can spin with your finger (of course unplug the machine first) and see if the pump spins freely. You should also examine the pump for signs of leakage or corrosion. You may simply have an object that was left in someone's pocket that has become lodged in the pump. Pump removal requires no tools, however you need to first bail out as much of the remaining water in the wash tub as possible.

I have a Kenmore top loading large capacity washer model 1028882791. It began washing as usual then began to making a loud humming sound. The agitation stopped. It only makes a loud humming sound. I...


The humming sound is coming from the drive motor running but unable to drive the agitator nor the basket to spin. The drive motor is definitely running as the drain function works because of the fact that drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. The drain pump works in either direction as long as the motor runs. The problem is obviously a broken motor coupler which transfers the mechanical energy of the motor to the transmission. The solution then is to replace the broken coupler. Click on the link below for the detailed step-by-step procedure in replacing the motor coupler.

Whrilpool modle #lsq9544kq0 washer works in


Humming could mean a stalled motor. These machines also have a coupling between motor and gearbox which can fail. However, the pump is attached to the motor, so if it's not pumping it probably means the motor isn't spinning. Check motor and/or gearbox.....Nomess

The washing machine goes through the whole cycle but the machine will not do the spin cycle and I think the agitator has a hard time moving?


Hi,
If you find this check whether the machine pump out the water from the unit listen for the humming sound from the motor if you found the humming sound means your spinning coil is defective kindly replace the motor

Washer did not spin out message E20 appeared on panel. Attempts to start just humming noise.


is the humming comming from the motror trying to run or is it just a humming sound if the machine has washed correctly upto that point then check water pump for faults and or blockage machine will not advance if water trapped in machine the humming sound could be the water pump either free spinning indicating a blockage or humming as it is trying to run indicating a faulty pump
