It could be many things.motor jammed or the bearings got loose. If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump 
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. 

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

My moms pipes froze to her washing machine. They thawed and the machine filled with water but they won't wash. She can hear a buzzing sound like the machine is trying to wash the clothes but nothi


Yes , I think the valves also must have jammed in the process and when the hot water filled up in due course it must have released.
It is best to switch off water supply to the machine in such times.

Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin just makes a loud buzzing noise.


Possible that the motor is not moving , could be a faulty capacitor to the motor. Also check for the free movement of the agitator, if the shaft is tight then it can cause a drag on the motor.

My washer fills up with water and quits after that, it makes a buzzing noise when it should start its cycle. what can i do to fix this? it is a kenmore series 80


This could be a capacitor, which gives the motor the 'spark' to start, or the motor itself. If you try to move the empty machine's basket by hand, is it hard to move or does it spin freely?

Buzzing sound


does it ever give an error code? a common problem on whirlpool made machines is the dispenser arm getting caught when changing positions. This part is in rear of detergent dispenser housing and uses a motor and a arm to select detergent/ softner/ bleach/ and fill. you can remove top (screws on back) to watch this.

Series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound


The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.
