You need to check for the Humming noise as this can be the indicator to the problem, if this comes from the motor then the capacitor is faulty. Failure to switch on the INLET and the DRAIN pump can be related to fault in the control panel or this can also be due to faulty electric line voltage on the outlet.. So please check this out.
Also check the inlet and drain filters for clogging as a clogged drain pump can also hum.

SOURCE: frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

Washer has a motor coupler linking motor to transmission. If this motor coupler is broken or has rounded out where it engages the motor and/or transmission gear it will only fill and drain. You can view this coupler by leaning washer back against the wall & looking underneath with a flashlight. There may be a sound dampener panel on the bottom that you have to remove to see it. It is two pieces of white plastic with a rubber grommet in the middle.

SOURCE: 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!

My Electrolux F/Loader won't start filling. I select a wash cycle and start . The screen shows 'filling' but only makes clicking noises.


Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that your Electrolux washer won't fill during the cycle and makes a clicking sound. This clicking sound could come from either the motor or the water valve. In order to locate which component could be causing the issue you may need to disassemble your washer. I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly disassemble the washer to prevent any personal injuries or future issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Frigidaire washer water will not drain


Hello - Is the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
