SOURCE: Model numer RAS6233RQ0...only get humming sound, and nothing else

yes i have a roper ras6233kg top load washer. I have not had any problem with it until about Two weeks ago, it over filled and it would only make a hummuing sound. Now it has dried out and have been working beautifully. Then Three days ago it stopped agitating,will not spin only making a loud humming noise. I guess its time to get another one.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore washer model 110.24422300 fills, but

First, see the Sears Parts Site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.24422300

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

Following is a description of how to release the console for access to the pins.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.

I have a whirlpool washer model WTW4800XQ1. It spins but doesn't drain. I taken apart all hoses...no clog. The water will drain through the pump when the unit is unplugged. Is there a way


it sounds like the pump does the water run out when the outlet pipe is laid flat on the floor or below the machine's height level? if so then the pump will need to be checked out

Kenmore,Top load, series70 agitates in all Wash positions around dial. Dial advances as it should, then stops, will not pump water out. will not spin when dial is advanced .Fills, agitates,stops.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

The washing machine will not fill with water.


this depends on the make of the washer / some whirlpool and kenmore will fill but if the lid switch is bad it will not advance to start washing ,,,, put the dial on spin and with it turned on close the lid and if it dont start spinning then your lid switch is your problem ,,,, can help better if i can have the make, model and serial off your washer.
