Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Rinse cycle doesnt work

My washer will fill up at the beginning of the cycle but when it gets to the rinse cycle it just makes a humming noise and wont rinse. If I move it to the spin cycle it starts working again. This is on all cycles, and the cold water doesnt work at all either.

The humming noise is probably the cold valve operating but no water. check tap not turned off. slowly loosen cold water feed and check if water present

Washer only fills in the rinse cycle

This is a common problem with a double water input hot and cold. Theres 2 valves on the back that let the water in, the rinse works as it lets cold water in, this means your other valve is not working, the `hum` you can hear is valve trying to open as it is an electric coil actuator. Its an easy fix and the valves are quite cheap, theres normally only 2 wires, make a note of where they go, they are colour coded.

Kenmore washer model 12502100 goes into rinse cycle fills with water turns then stops. won't drain just stops hear humming or buzzing noise.

Try to put it on rinse on another cycle, like normal, heavy duty or delicate. If it works, then your timer is probably bad. If it doesn't work then maybe the pump. Best of luck

Maytag washer stopped working at the rinse cycle

do you have the machine set for cold water rinse? if so, the solenoid that allows the cold water to come into the machine may be malfunctioning. try to see if it will fill in the rinse cycle with hot water? if so, you need to change the water inlet valve.

Machine stops at rinse cycle and hums

check the setting of the water temp for the rinse cycle. If one of your water supply valves is closed (HOT/COLD) the tub cannot fill with the proper water temp selected. The hum noise you are reporting is associated with the fill solenoid valve located in back of the machine.
Also, I have found the problem to be the screen located in the fill valve clogged with rust and water deposites. Disconnect both water lines and verify the water supply is not restricted.
Hope this helps..
If not, a more thural description of the problem may reveal more clues to assist in troubleshooting.
Thanks and good luck...

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Washer hums on rinse cycle

It sounds as if you are using WARM water for the wash cycle since your complaint begins with the rinse cycle. The rinse cycle generally uses COLD water, so I must deduce that your washer is not filling up for the rinse cycle. The humming sound is likely coming from the fill valve being starved for cold water.
Investigate your cold water supply to the washer and if you have good supply, you may want to replace the fill valve.

Let me know what you find...Thanks for contacting
