There is a coupling between the motor and the gearbox that has probably broken. It is two pieces of rubber that fit together like a puzzle. It acts like a weak link to protect the far more expensive components. Check under the machine for some fine black shavings in a little pile at about the middle of the machine.

Washing machine fills and agitates but won't spin or drain, just hums.


When the machine beeps it is giving you a code with the 8 wash progress lights along the top. Some will be on some will be off. With OFF = Zero and On = 1 Can you give me the 8 digit code. An example is (01001001) It is normal for the pump motor to get very very warm. Make sure you can spin the pump impeller easily.

Top load frigidaire washer will not spin, it agitates, it drains


You need to replace the starter cap on the motor this is why it will not turn and the smell is the cap that's not starting the motor it also will hum.

My Kenmore washer (series 90) stopped working in between the rinse and spin cycles. It will not drain (half full as we speak), agitate or spin. It will fill with water but once it reaches the proper water...


Something stuck in Pump. Pump on your model is driven by washer motor, so if Pump can't turn, motor can't work and will hum until it overheats and shuts down.

No spin - agitate


Hi,

You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Hotpoint washer


Your machine has multiple issues. First, the obvious: are the water lines turned on? When you try to fill it with water, can you hear the water valve humming? Try different temperatures, too. If it lets one temp in, but not the other, you need a water valve. If it doesn't hum at all, you could have a problem with the pressure switch or the timer.
The motor humming is the issue that worries me. Try removing the belt from the motor pulley. If the motor turns now, it's a transmission problem. If it won't agitate (you'll have to satisfy the pressure switch first) or spin at all, your transmission could be locked up. I've had limited success by pulling on the belt (hard) in both directions. This has only worked once to unjam the transmission.
Good luck!

Kenmore 110 Series will not agitate, spin or drain but will fill


you may find that the motor is not going because of faulty capacitor or faulty timer
