Question about Washing Machines
Love your doggie! THe loud sound sounds like the motor, but the control panel is not letting the cycle begin. Sensing means it is looking for water to begin filling the machine. If there is no water going into the machine this means that the solenoid that allows water to enter the machine is not opening the valve or maybe, YOU DIDN"T TURN ON THE WATER AT THE FAUCETS!

Easy things first: Check the water hoses are all connected, the taps are on, and that the hoses aren't kinked. Everything after that involves poking around live terminals. If you aren't happy doing this, then don't be ashamed to call someone else in. Turn the power off. Remove the top panel from the machine. On the inside of the back panel near the top, you will find the fill valves (on a few machines, there is only the one). These are the items that the fill hoses you checked a minute ago plug into. Follow the hoses inside the machine from the soap dispenser back to the valves to identify which valve is the one which washes soap into the machine at the very start of the cycle. On the top of this valve are two terminals. Attach the leads of a multimeter to these, and select an ac volts range that will stand seeing mains voltage. (If you haven't got a multimeter, suggest you buy a cheap one from the local hardware shop - it will come in handy for all sorts of things once you have it). Turn the machine on and start a wash cycle. If the meter shows mains voltage across the terminals of the valve, and yet no water is flowing into the machine, you need to replace the valve. This is a cheap part to buy, and not difficult to do yourself. IF you don't find any volts across the valve, it's worth trying the other valves to make sure you haven't got the wrong one, but then it's beginning to look like a controller problem - at which point it's worth paying someone else to come in and look at it: Once expensive parts get involved, you either need to be sure you know what's broken, or be sure you can take unneeded, but briefly installed replacement parts back. Before removing your meter leads, don't forget to turn the power off. A.

sounds as if theres something stuck in your drain pump, youll need to remove the lower acess panel(2 screws across the bottom front of unit) you'll see teh pump in the rigth hand corner. i would remove as much water as possible before trying to remove the hose to the pump or you will get soaking wetaferer removig the hose youll be able tro see what trapped in oyu pump preventing free draining.. VERY common problem.DISCONNECT POWER THE DRAIN PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi talknbrenda - First, does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Other possibilities could be a faulty door lock, timer, pump, or control board not communicating correctly. In this case I would contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose and repair the washer.

Hello - First, does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. From what you have described, if the door lock assembly has been replaced and issue continues then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with the timer, control board not communicating correctly or a faulty pump. In this case I would contact a professional to move forward accurately since it is not recommened to be used if it is providing a burnt smell to properly diagnose and repair the washer.
