First make sure that your outlet is getting power to your machine. Can you hear any noise at all? Try advancing to spin cycle and see if it will spin. If it spins, it could be a water valve not opening to fill the machine. If not it is probably the timer.
are you sure the outlet has power? make certain by plugging in a lamp or something else to the outlet first. the timer does have to get power to turn on the unit, but its not likely it is the problem. try a different cycle and see if it wont run on any position. like fill, wash or spin. then if your outlet is ok, it could be the timer. i dont think it is but it could happen. usually if the timer fails, it will work on some cycles but not all of them. if it wont work on any cycle then i would expect the outlet first.
turn it on and just makes a hummins noise??? not filling with water??? at very least the machine if powered correcly will fill with water, the humming if happening is hte washer trying to fill check your incoming water supply. try alo changing water temp select from cold/warm/hot.
My washing machine fills up fine, but then when its time to start aggitating and spin's it makes like a metal on plastic grinding noise, We would like to try to fix it ourself but have no idea which part it is. Could you please HELP?
Your transmission has gone out. The reason the spin cycle works is because the transmission spins two different ways and you agitate way stripped the gear. Some places rebuild them. Try with your local stores maybe they can rebuild it or get you a good used one. If not you can order a new one from sears.com
