Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Washing machine makes buzzing noise instead of going through cycl

Originally, It was stuck on the spin cycle. It would buzz, then stop- wait a minute then do it again without spinning. It did this for hours before I noticed. After bailing the water and removing the clothes I was able to play with it and get it to spin. I would fill with water, spin and pump a couple of cups of water out of the tub while it spinned. But, when I put the load back in all it would do is buzz. Now it will not do any of the cycles.

    I have the exact same problem. Our pipes froze about a week ago, I defrosted everything and all the taps work fine with no broken pipes, however the washing machine now just buzzes when we try to use it. I don't know if some gasket inside the machine has ruptured due to the ice or what the problem is. Any help is appreciated!

SOURCE: Loud clicking noise at spin cycle

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that has gone bad. Most of the Kenmore top loaders that I'm familiar with are direct drive machines. Which means, they use a motor coupling between the electric drive motor and transmission to run. If you are in the habit of doing heavy loads like comforters, blankets and jeans this can put a heavy burden on the motor coupler and wear it out faster. The coupler is designed to take the burden of the punishment in order to protect the transmission and drive motor and it is common for them to wear out. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and usually runs about $15. It is located inside the machine between the drive motor and transmission under the wash tub. You would have to remove the outside machine casing, the water pump and drive motor to get to it, though. Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs involving removal of the drive motor. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to seek the aid of a repairman. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Does not Spin out the water at the end of a load

If it spins the balance is okay. Check out your filter now. And then the pump (after the spigot prob below) Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Check your belt it may be lose. A lose belt will cause a squealing noise and the machine spin slower or take time to come up to full speed

My washer makes a buzzing sound when trying to go through spin cycle. Cold water doesn't work either but other temps do.


check for a faulty cold water solenoid in the machine
the buzzing noise is a cycle frequency noise caused when a solenoid coil is faulty and not moving the centre bit.

See if buzzing noise stops after 10 to 20 seconds if not your cycle timer stuck. Change cycle to a different selection and try to start.

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain


Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

Waher will not go into spin cycle. It makes a buzzing noise and will not spin.


it's most likely your timer....u can get the machine to spin out your clothes by pushing the timer in and pulling it back out. this resets the motor and makes it turn backwards. it's a pain to do this because you have to keep an eye on the time. this will get you through until you change the timer.

Washing machine makes buzzing noise


Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Washer making buzzing sound during spin cycle,then stopped during wash still has water in tge clothes,buttons light up as if going to work but nothing happens jusy buzzing noise


If I understand correctly, the washer made a sound in the spin cycle but didn't actually spin the clothes dry?
If so you may have something in the pump that is not allowing it to pump out. Disassemble the pump and make sure it is clear of any debris.
