Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Fills but won't start, just buzzes

This is the second time in a week that this has occured. The last time we let it just set for about two hours and it finally started working. This time it has been longer and it still won't go. Tried unplugging and moving the tub by hand. The load in the machine is tiny but the first time this happened it was very large. Any ideas what could be wrong. The timer on the machine is only a few months old. It also has new belts and water pump. Could there be an off balance switch some where that needs replacing? HELP! Thank you---Joe

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the buzzeer could either indicate a completed cycle or a fault. it could be that a leak or overflow has been detected and flooding is possible. This would refer to the drain area below the tub of the dishwasher. In most occasions, cleaning the filter, strainer, mesh, grid, sump, impeller, pump and hose should address the buzzer concern. There are however instances where the buzzer is persistently sounding off even if the aforementioned areas/components have been cleaned and dried. One method of addressing/correcting this is to force dry the bottom/under the tub with the use of a can of compressed air, an air compressor, a reversible vacuum cleaner, hair dryer or even a ventilator/electric fan. There have been reports of successful tricks like laying the dishwasher on its side. Thereafter pressing on the STOP, PAUSE or CANCEL for more than 5 seconds should clear the error or unplugging the unit for an extended period of time.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Since you have replaced almost ALL of the things that could go wrong---Have you Checked the Start Button for Power Going to it? Could be a Faulty Start Button.

Why is my IIIWoods 50013 outdoor 24 hour timer switching to OFF regardless of setting? How do I fix it?


First start with the reset button, clears out all past commands.
First the clock has to be set to the proper day and time, It might be in the 24 system versus AM and PM you can find this out by stepping through all the hours when the time comes on. To set clock press Set and see what is flashing, if it is the day, scroll to the right day and hit set, now time should flash scroll to right hour, press set, right minutes, press set, right seconds, press set; Now the clock should be set.
Next you do the programs you want again go through same process, hit program 1 should flash press set, now the days should flash, scroll through till you have the right combo of days, one day, all days of week, Sat, Sun, then last the whole week will flash, if that is the one you want then press set, now press set and the times should flash for hour.
pick the time you want to come on, hit set for hour, minute, second, then hit set again now hit the program button again and it should say off, go through the same steps and set hour, minute second then hit set for last time. In a few minutes it should change to reading the time on the screen. Then you have to wait and see if it works. To do a mini version, see if it will work get a lamp plug in set all the above but use a very short on off time like 4 or 5 mins, then you will know if it is going to work right. then set for the correct time. good luck hope it helps. If it all messes up just hit reset and start all over, REMEMBER it can't so anything until the time of day is set right that's the starting point.

Pull out the crown to position 3.
Rotate the crown to set the exact time.
Ensure that you are in the daytime12 hour segment by allowing the hands to pass 12 o'clock and notice if the date moved on or not.
If the date changed, then you will need to advance at least 2 hours before moving on to set the date.
If you do not need to change the date, return the crown to position 1.

Pull crown to position 2.
Rotate the crown clockwise to set to the correct date.
Return the crown to position 1.

Press the 4 o'clock button to move the central timing hand successively to the desired countdown time.
Wait 3 seconds for the watch to automatically exit the setting mode.
You can change the duration of the countdown [except in the last minute] at any time.
e.g. If the countdown is set to 10minutes, and you now want to change the countdown to 9 minutes, press the 4 o'clock button. The hours/seconds counter sub-dial will perform one complete turn and then stop at 60, before continuing.

There are 2 beeps every minute.
in the last minute:
50 seconds=1 beep.
40 seconds=1 beep.
30 seconds=2 beeps.
20 seconds=2 beeps.

Press the 4 o'clock button to reset.


Resetting the Hands:
If the hands do not zero correctly, which might occur after a battery change or a violent shock, you can make adjustments by doing the following settings as long as the countdown is not in operation.
To correct the hour/seconds counter sub-dial, pull the crown out to position 2 and wait 1 second.
Press either the 2 or 4 o'clock button; the central timing hand will turn and stop [not necessarily at 12].
Press the 2 o'clock button to increment the hours/seconds counter sub-dial hand to position it at 60.
To correct the central timing hand, press the 4 o'clock button to increment the hand to the 12 position.
Return the crown to position 1.



If the battery had been replaced, the central timing hand defaults to the 10 minute position. If the battery had not been replaced, the central timing hand will return to the previously set position.

My Kenmore moel #11027082602 ran while we were


Yes it is very possible. If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.
