Check the motor or the tub bearing. Something is frozen on your machine and not letting it spin. You can also check the brake or clutch and make sure it is not stuck. On the back of the unit when you remove the back panel you will be able to see everything that you need to get at

Tip

How to receive the best washing machine repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your washer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.


1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of washers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your washer.

Descriptions like 'My washer don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the washer not filling with water? Maybe the washer is full of water but it will not pump the water out?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The washer will not pump the water out' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"My washer filled up with water and started agitating. When I went to take the laundry out of the washer the timer had advance to the end of the cycle, but the washer was still full of water. I advance the timer around to the drain cycle again to try and drain the water out of the washer, but all the washer does is make a humming sound."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your washer repair question.

SM 8525492A whirlpool washer rinse cycle no water comes out, just hums


when the washer goes into rinse cycle it only uses cold water so clothes don't rinkle,so most likey you have a problem with your cold water,do this,shut down the water to the washer,remove the water lines from the back of washer and mark them so you know how they came off,stick the hoses into the washer if they reach or a bucket,turn on the cold water to see if water is coming out of hose,if water does come out of hose good then stick the cold water hose back on the washer and run it only on cold,if it doesn't fill then you know you have a problem with the water valve on the washer and it's not the house water valve that's bad,and usually if you have a problem with the washer water valve it will just hum and no water will enter the washer so if you hear a humming sound it will be the water valve.tried looking up the model number you sent but it doesn't come up on the parts lookup

Washer hums but will not fill or start/ spin has water pressure and tub seems to move freely the model #on tag LTF2140ES0


If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

My washer will fill up and drain but not agitate or spin


Looks like the motor needs to be replaced. After some years of use, the motor may not have enough strength to move the drum. If you test the motor by itself, it may work, but can't handle a load.

Washing machine filled with water then quit working.


I pulled the back off and found where the noise was coming from. It was not the motor but I didn't know what the part was. I called an 800 number for G.E. sales and parts and spoke with someone about the dryer model number and he figured out what the washer model number was. I told him what I heard and where I heard it. He said only two parts make a humming sound: the motor and the water valve. I found a local parts dealer and bought a new water valve for $11.93 and now my washer is working again!
