Just fixed the same problem. Its a broken belt. Take the front panel off and to the right of the tub you will see a pulley and belt. We replaced both the pulley and the belt for around $40. Was real easy to do yourself.

Washer (total care system) is making a humming noise even though I've taken all the clothes out of it. The agitator works, but there's a humming noise. I've stopped it and re-started it, but...


Hi

1 of 2 things could be the trouble.

Does the washer drain properly if you manually turn the control knob? If not then this sounds like your pump is either plugged with possible lint and can't move or has died completely. 99% chance pump is the problem and 99% chance it can be an easy fix by cleaning the pump where the Drain Line is attached, worst case scenario pump is to be replaced, but not a overall expensive fix and most can do it without a technician.

Second problem is possibly the time itself, but if the washer is going through all cycles except spin then pump is likely the culprit, cause in spin cycle the machine has to drain the water from the unit as it spins, if it cannot the washing machine basically stops and cannot complete the cycle.

One way to tell for sure if the pump is the problem. When the machine enters the spin cycle and starts making that noise. Manually turn the dial a little bit till it passes the spin cycle, if it continues to wash till it hits the final spin/drain cycle then stops again...your pump is in need of help.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Spin cycle appears to be broken. washer just hums


Humming can indicate a stalled motor...If a coin is jammed in the pump impeller it will often do what you describe...Check via pump filter access door...Good luck....Nomess

Whrilpool modle #lsq9544kq0 washer works in


Humming could mean a stalled motor. These machines also have a coupling between motor and gearbox which can fail. However, the pump is attached to the motor, so if it's not pumping it probably means the motor isn't spinning. Check motor and/or gearbox.....Nomess

Spin cycle does not work. Machine only hums when it should spin.


Check the motor capacitors. Wash cycle and run cycle capacitors are different in some m/cs.If these are OK motor winding to be checked.

Now it is ten years old and you are likely to get ball bearing problem. Get an repair estimate and decide which suits your budget.

Washer fills with water but will not continue with the wash cycle. There is power to the machine because I can her an electrical humming when I try to start the cycle.


If the water in the machine empties when you move the selector to spin but does not spin, you may have a machine that uses a coupler to connect the motor to the transmission (many Kenmore models and others). When the coupler fails, and they do, then everything will work except for the agitator. If this is the case, you can see it if you flip the unit over and look.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Frigidaire Front Load Washer Problem


Plug off the wall, open up the back to check your belt, might have come off. Place around motor pulley & turn the drum wheel to slip on the belt gently from either the right or left. If too loose you have to replace with new belt.
