Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine making a clicking noise.

After the washing machine got done the cloths were still in need of rinsing. Set the dial back to rinse and pulled it out to start it. There is a loud clicking noise coming from underneath and the machine will not start. I hear the motor, and also it starts to drain water for a split second once you turn it on. But otherwise it is just making a loud clicking noise and doing nothing.

    My HE3 front load washer won't spin. I hear a clicking sound almost like a playing card clicking on bike spokes, but the drum doesn't turn. I've stopped the machine and restarted it. Now I'm getting an F02 error message. Any ideas?

    I turned my servis washing machine on today and the green power light came on, then I turned the dial to wash, and then when I pressed the start button the green light stared flickering and the washing machine was making a funny clicking noise. Then the green power light just went off and now it won't work!! Does anyone know why this might have happened??
    Thanx April

    I have the same problem as listed by rebgary. I really hate to call a repair man as I am on a very fixed income. Can anyone give me a step by step on how to troubleshoot the simple things? I am a single mom and I don't know much about washers.

    Hello can anyone please help?

    There does not seem to get water in the machine and it makes a clicking noise. It tries to extract the water in the end, that works fine. Also the soap drawer is emptied, so there is still water going through....

The problem most likely is something stuck in the water port of the drain pump. My machiine would not empty once and I found a 12 penny nail that had made its way from the drum though the drain line to the the pump, where it was wedged against the impellers that spins to draw out the water through the pump. The pump is located in the front right bottom of the machine and accessible by reoving the lower front panel, It is held in place by 4 small screws and is connected to the drain lines. Disconnect the plug for the outlet, then disconnect the power connection from the pump. Disconnect the drainlines after removing as much water possible from the drum as the water will come out of these liines when you remove them. Remove the pump, open the cover to see the impeller and hopefully the bobby pin, nail, screw, or whatever else is stuck there will be visible and easily removed. Put the pump cover back on, replace the drain lines and screws, and reconnect the power connection to the pump. Then do a better job checking your pockets.

My washing machine works fine until it gets to the spin cycle. The it makes this clicking sound and makes the power in house dim and come back on several times. I think it might be in the dial... But have no clue about this... It is a Kenmore top loader. I can puch knob in and pull it back out then it works fine spining. But once it stops and starts rinsing again and goes to spin out again it does it again.

The problem is that the sump is full of penneys and nails and screws etc. left in posckets. Pull down the flap on the front lower section of the machine, put down a towel and unscrew the filter. Water will run out but only a small amount, approx a cup or two. You will more than likely find it full of debris like nails and change. Stick you fingers in and claar around the inside and put the filter back in place. This should sort the problem

This might not solve the problem, but I had a banging, clanging, clicking sound when the machine tried to agitate or spin, and discovered that the nuts attaching the tumbler to spinner support were loose. It was a simple fix. I just unscrewed the back blades inside the tumbler, took them off, tightened the nuts, and replaced the blades. All the work was done from inside the tumbler. There was no need to take the machine apart to get to the insides. Prem

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.

Washing machine switches on and then hums and clicks the dial but does not operate just hums and clicks

Mind does the same thing, I'm not sure if it has to do with age or if it is time for new timer! mine does finish it's cycle, and wash's and rinses the cloths, does Yours? and it only does this in between wash and rinse cycle! The noise You hear is the timer making it's way through cycle, as I said I think it has to do with age, and in the future, hopefully a long ways into the future, the timer will need replaced! If This does this when You first start wash, then You may not be getting water into Your washer, Do you use city water or well?

Low level of rinse water. What can I do?

Possible that the water level sensor has failed and so it does not load to the level set by the program. You will need to check the level sensor to clear the water line of air block or dirt or faulty unit.Try to set a higher water level to the program settings and see if the water fills up on rinse, choose an different program

Whirlpool washer won't rinse or spin w/o manually turning knob

It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess

Loud banging noise during rinse

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

My machine will not rinse cloths. The cycly stops once it gets to rinse and it makes a lite buzzing noise.What could it be?

Most washers today are cold rinse only. The buzzing noise you hear may be the cold water valve.
1. Check cold water to make sure it is on.
2. Remove cold water hose from back of machine. Inspect washer cold water valve for debris. Can usually be cleaned with spray bottle with hard spray.
3. Cold water valve has failed.

If you need further assistance please let me know..

Asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.
