Kenmore elite 110.2303211 top loader just hums

Got full of water, looks clear like it was on the rinse cycle. Now it won't do anything but hum, no matter what the timer dial is set to.

    Well, the tub filled, so I don't imagine there's a problem with the filter screens or the water inlet valve. The pump might be clogged - my wife said there was lint in the last load.



    How do I get the case off to check the pump and hoses?



    Thanks

    Turned out to be that pesky lid switch. I bypassed it by unplugging it and putting a jumper across the two outer pins of the connector coming from the console.

Check the following:-

For testing the motor contact the vendor or some professional.

Their is 2 screens towards the back right that are plugged up. . You can take out 2 screws out and clean them up. Or the fill level adjustment in the front left isn't working right. It also can be fixed with 2 screws and cleaned.

Kenmore washing machine catalyst stops during rinse cycle


The hum you here is the probably the motor trying to turn, but it is about burned out. If it moves a little with a full load and more with no load, it is probably bad. If you hear a hum and the drum never moves at all you probably have a broken belt.

MY GE front loader washer won't fill with water or spin. I hear a hum when I turn it on and it sounds as if it's about to start a cycle but nothing happens.


It sounds as if your water valve is either clogged or the solenoid is stuck and not letting any water in. Here is a checklist of things you should do to help isolate the problem:
1) check to make sure the water is on
2) turn the water off and remove the water lines and verify that both the lines and the screens on the valve are clear of debris, calcium, etc.
3) take the top off the machine where you can actually see the valve, turn the machine on and see if the vavle is the humming noise that you are hearing. If so and no water is coming out then the valve is bad.

Kenmore Elite Washer Stopped mid-cycle. Only hums when turning on


You will have to drain it, those units use a belt to drive the transmission. It may have come off the pulleys or broken in half. If you can get a large wet and dry vacuum, that would make it easier to drain. Hook the vacuum to the drain hose and remove the water.

Kenmore Elite (Calypso) Top loader Will start and fill up w/ water, and wash for a while. During the washing process it makes a humming noise and then the display gives a "ob" reading. I have replaced the...


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.
