The pump is clogged with most likely a coin. You need to get access to the pump then remove the hoses.(Make sure you put a pan under the hoses to catch the water) After that you should be able to remove the objects.

Frigidaire front load washer that will not start . it just buzzes. when it does start it stops after washing and leaves water in clothes asn buzzes.


it could either be a bad door switch or something stuck in the pump or a bad pump.if you set it to drain/spin will it drain out the water or does it buzz there?if it does drain i'd have to say you have a bad door switch.the model number you sent doesn't come up,you can unplug the machine,remove the hose that goes to the pump or run it before you unplug it and see if it's the pump making the sound or if the center of the pump can be removed to clean out the pump and check the pump for coins and junk,use a shop vac and vac out all the water in the tub and then lossen the hose or center of pump until water starts to leak out and vac it up as it comes out,check the pump and put it back together,add some water with a bucket or something and see if it drains out,if it doesn't drain and it sounds like the pump is making the noise you have a bad pump,if it buzzes and it's not the pump change out the door switch.the buzzing is electrical,things that could make this sound are the motor,the solenoids on the water valve or the door switch,if you can do some checks like see if it drains or try to find where the noise is coming from would be helpful.good luck and i hope this helps you out.

I have an affinity washer and dryer. The last loand did not complete its cycle. It is partially full of water, but not enough to seap out. Itmakes a buzzing sound and will not spin. It is not the type of...


It sounds like the drain pump has stopped. If it still has water in it and you turn it on (in the spin only cycle) the drain pump should be running and you sould be hearing the water drain. The washer will not spin until the water is out. Depending on how handy you are determines whether you can access the drain pump and remove the obstrustion. There is also a trap to catch debries from going into the pump. This could be plugged, but normally you don't hear a buzz. You hear the drain pump working but no water going out. Good luck

Makes a buzzing sound about half way through the


Hello,
Does the water drain out at all if not then this is certainly a blockage in the drain pump and the dish washer will normally have to come out to get at drain pump the normal access to pump is through the base will have to tip unit on its back and remove base plate if it has one.Do check in bottom of internal filter for debris but it seems as if it has got into pump and stopping it turning.Hope this helps.I dont recognise the model number,is it correct.

Good Luck

KEnmore front load washing machine pulled in a little bit of water and stopped, door locked and small buzzing/vibration sound. unplugged to reset - did not work, tried it again and it drained a little then...


there is something stuck or blocking the drain pump.
use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove the water.
then remove the hoses from the drain pump and look for any obstructions.

Maytag Model #MAT13MNAGW When the machine gets to the spin cycle it doesn't spin but makes a buzzing sound. Something like the buzzing sound that a welder makes when the rod sticks.


this means that there is something stuck inside your drain pump.if you still have water in the machine you can use a wet/dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove all the water in the tub.
once that is done check your drain pump for obstructions if there is no obstruction look at the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump

Kenmore front loading washer won't drain or aggitate, just buzzes


take the front bottom panel off. inside there is a drain pump. you need to remove filter from drain pump its look like a knob. be careful because their is water inside your drain pump so use some big thing for water. clean your filter. put filter back tight. i hope will solve your problem.
