Washer does not spin. What's wrong with the machine?
Wash cycle works then I can hear the timer moving. But when it gets to where it would spin before it does nothing. This machine has had a problem in the past in that the spin cycle would start but I'd have to lift the lid then put it down again sometimes to engage the tub to spin..

Sounds like a bad lid switch. If it works intermittently, could be loose. When you close the lid, the two parts of the lid switch line up which allows continuation of operation. You can bypass the lid switch by removing power to machine; locate the switch FOR THE LID ON THE MACHINE SIDE, remove the two wires and wire nut them together. MACHINE WILL RUN NORMALLY EVEN WITH THE LID OPEN.

Kenmore washer 110.16112503 works in wash & spin cycle but not rinse. After wash cycle finished I hear a humming sound and the machine does nothing until I manually start spin cycle. Broken timer?


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

You can hear water behind the drum when you spin


I don't believe you have a problem with your washer. It is NORMAL to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. You will be able to hear the water sloshing around if you move the drum or drain lines. This is the lowest point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket inside the drum, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Whrilpool modle #lsq9544kq0 washer works in


Humming could mean a stalled motor. These machines also have a coupling between motor and gearbox which can fail. However, the pump is attached to the motor, so if it's not pumping it probably means the motor isn't spinning. Check motor and/or gearbox.....Nomess

You can hear the washing machine spinning but the tub dos not spin whats wrong?


Good day,
Go back and start a wash cycle. When it fills and starts running check to see if the agitator is working. If not then go here for a detailed explanation on repairing.

It's a tedious job, but with a lot of patience it can be done.
If the agitator in the wash cycle is working normally, then you have a major problem, and would require a service tech. Not cheap.

Won't Agitate


If you can hear the motor during the agitate cycle, the the transmission has stripped gears.
