Yes , I think the valves also must have jammed in the process and when the hot water filled up in due course it must have released.
It is best to switch off water supply to the machine in such times.

SOURCE: washer making buzzing sound during

If I understand correctly, the washer made a sound in the spin cycle but didn't actually spin the clothes dry?
If so you may have something in the pump that is not allowing it to pump out. Disassemble the pump and make sure it is clear of any debris.

I did remove the top lid switch and jumped the to wires (Yellow/Red and Orange) still did not make any difference. Any in for would be great.

Washer won t fill water


pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.

My washer buzzes when knob is pulled but it will spin just not fill or agitate


sounds to me like either the water faucet at the wall is shut off or their is some sort of restriction to the pipes not allowing the washer to fill
some on here may say that the buzzing will be the motor but since it spins i say bully to them the motor only knows to go to spin or agitate rotation based on on what the timer/control tells it to do if it will turn one direction it would turn the other direction as well. So definently check the water supply to the washer
Oh the buzzing is the solonoid on the valve opening the valve yet since no water coming in you hear the buzzing while you wouldnt hear it since it would be drowned out by the sound of the water coming in

Squeals when hot water inputs


Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
