Your water valve could be bad.take hoses off the valve and check the screens for any blockage.if no blockage then you most likely will need a new water valve.make sure water is on both sides.hot and cold.

Washer buzzes and won't agitate or spin. Only will fill with water.


Almost certainly with that sound, the motor start capacitor has failed. It will be located either behind the control panel, or underneath next to the motor.

Washer will not start. it makes a slight buzzing sound and then nothing.


OK buzzing sound, hmmm, need to know more than that, dos the water fill ??,,if not disconnect the water hoses at the machine and check the filter elements in the intake water side they might be plugged, if the unit fills with water then the starter capacitor at the motor might be defective. good luck

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

Water can't fill up


Check and clean out filter inside the connector to the washer

If that is clean
Switch the water off and then start the machine cycle , you should hear a buzzing sound from the area where the inlet hose connects to the washer

If there is no buzzing and the inlet filter is clean you need a new fill valve

My GLTF 2940 makes a buzzing sound like a relay not pulling in all the way, during the rinse cycle. If you shut off the washer, and restart it on the rinse only cycle, it goes away.


its probably your cold water rinse only valves solenoid thats loose on the structure or the coil itself is loose,you may not hear it all the time especially during the initial wash start fill,try this, set the washer for cold water fill only on the washer,but turn off the water valves that supply water and start your machine to a wash cycle as normal,try this and see if it dry buzzes(without water),then try the same on the hot side,then with the water still off open up the machine and you can localize the buzzing noise

Fills with waters starts making a buzzing sound


Check to see if there is something(sock) in the pump. If not, try spin washer with pump hanging down, but not with hoses off.

Me Estate washing machine, when started fills to specified water level then, it makes a buzzing noise then the buzz quits and nothing happens. Machine won't agitate or drain, just buzz then buzz quits.


sounds like you have a problem with your water supply to washer. the buzzing noise sounds like it's the valve opening to receive water but nothing going in. check supply hoses and water taps
