Washer won't drain and makes a buzzing noise

My Kenmore Elite Calypso washing machine makes a buzzing noise about one minute after it starts to fill with water. I took the ran hose off and fluched it but it still is doing the same thing. The water will not drain out of the tub......Any suggestions??

    My Kenmore washer, Model 110.28902790 stopped agitating, won't spin and won't drain the water. In adition, a buzzing noise started to come from the back of the top panel where the controls are. I had to remove all the clothes and manually scoop all of the water out. The next day, I triwed to turn on the machine. It only filled with water and made the same buzzing sound, but nothing else happens. Now the machine simply doesn't work, not even the buzzing but the water still comes in.

It appears your main controller board/timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My kenmore elite calypso washer is making a buzzing sound one minute into the wash cycle. It is about 9 years old. Should I fix it? How?


Sorry you had the bad luck to buy a calypso washer,probably the worst washer ever made! I also had the misfortune of owning this washer from hell. My washer had the same sounds as you described and in my case it was the water pump, which in this machine is separate. It wont be to long before you will have a total failure and then the fault light will come on.I am on my third pump and looking for a new one. Good luck on this one.

Kenmore (Calypso) Elite Washing machine shows LD and LF!


LD means long drain and according to the manual your drain hose could be clogged or kinked.
LF means long fill. check your water hoses and the screens to make sure they are not clogged. Had that happen to me once and i had to change the hoses. several months later same thing happened and it was the motor pump part # 8054968, this you can fix yourself.

Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer


I'm in the process of tearing apart my Calypso, Ugh. I found the diagnostic chart inside the machine. 5L is actually 'SL' which means suds lock, and can be an indicator of a failed pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. Corrective action is to press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.
