Good Afternoon Cloy,

I understand that you are getting a humming sound on your Frigidaire washer, and it will not start a cycle. I also see that you've checked the pump as well as the motor, and neither of those is making the humming sound. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine what is causing your appliance to make that humming sound and not run a cycle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Kenmore washer humms and smells horrible....

You have a bad motor. ( very common) If you take your model number to a local used parts store you may be able to find a good used motor for cheap. If no luck finding a used one, Order it from sears. (the motor is deffinately your problem, I replace them all the time.)

SOURCE: My washer filled with water and now it won't do

Check your lid switch. Symptoms may include, no spinning, no agitation, stopping at the rinse cycle and no draining. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. 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. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3557193-replacing_a_lid_switch

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement switch is 3949247. The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between these sites, so shop and compare.

If the suggestions I have listed do not match your washer symptoms, please post back and elaborate more on what the washer is/is not doing so I can provide you with better assistance. Please include your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) if its different than the one you listed the question under so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool so these instructions do apply. In addition, if the tub is full of water, and will not drain, you do not need to drain the tub to complete this repair.

HUMMS WHEN IN SPIN CYCLE, DOES NOT SPIN


Hi,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Frigidaire Gallery Series # GLTF 2940FS The washer stopped running in mid rinse cycle. When I try to start it a clicking sound occurs.


You will need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing obstructing or restricting the flow of water.Once you know that is clear and the problem returns then you might have to change the main control board and possible the door lock.Also make sure to check the motor and all the wiring the motor.

I have a kenmore 90 plus series model # 11068972892............... when i push start button the dryer motor will humm and mabey start to run or it will just humm and not run at all..if it...


Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.
