does the water pour out when you put the drain hose close to the ground if it does then make sure your pump isnt blocked if it isnt then youll need to replace the pump most pumps have 3 little fins in them if you can stop those fins with a screw driver when pump is going then it deffinatley needs replacing as you cannot fix them sorry for the bad news m8

SOURCE: My Kenmore Washing Machine wont drain or spin. Only a slight hum.

This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. The humming sound you hear when the lid is closed may just be the timer motor running. If your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured. I hope this helps you.

If you determine that your lid switch is broken, please let me know and I will provide you with the steps necessary to repair it yourself (simple repair job). I can also give advice on where to purchase a replacement.

NOTE: Placing heavy objects on the washer lid can cause the lid to bow and also affect the way it contacts the lid switch.

SOURCE: I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out

If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board

Kenmore washing machine catalyst stops during rinse cycle


The hum you here is the probably the motor trying to turn, but it is about burned out. If it moves a little with a full load and more with no load, it is probably bad. If you hear a hum and the drum never moves at all you probably have a broken belt.

10 year old top loader, stops midway thru cycle


turns out it was the opening and closing the lid while trying to get it to run again. I placed a screwdriver in the hole on the lid sensor deal and it kept running so I order a new stinger or what ever you call the deal on the lid that goes in to the hole. I was going to order a timer until I read your emails on your web site..saved me a lot of money. THANKS

Kenmore Elite (Calypso) Top loader Will start and fill up w/ water, and wash for a while. During the washing process it makes a humming noise and then the display gives a "ob" reading. I have replaced the...


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
