    he control board seems to work , when i here clicking at control the motor starts to hum after a few seconds clicking again them the humming stops an it does this three times before all the lights go off like it does when it done cleaning. it has always been quite, never made any noise other then the washing sounds, never smelt any kind of burning from it, (you know what electrical burning smells like)never notice any of that the only thing i can think of is a possible locked up motor but the drain pump works fine so im lost here. it has to be something simple i cant figure.."

Wild guess is a problem with the Control, probably a circuit board depending on age.
Several online appliance parts sites may be able to diagnose and suggest replacement parts they have helped me with other appliances. Depending on age and your thinking about a replacement, this might be the time. Or a lightly used replacement may be near the price of part and labor.

    SORRY I PUT THIS IN THE WRONG SPOT

  • gbob59 Apr 11, 2015

    You are right, if it actually pumps water the motor is ok. I'd try to put some water in the bottom manually to make sure it pumps out. Sounds like it is trying to do "rinse" only? If it's anything like my maytag, with a dial and ratchet type of dial, is it possible the dial is broken or loose so that when on wash it is "actually on rinse"?

Machine worked fine to start with . Then stopped. Will fill water but drum wont turn on a wash cycle. And wont spin on spin cycle.But Belt seems fine. Can you help.


The pump needs to be replaced. The pump controls the agitation for the wash cycle, also controls the tub for draining & spinning after the wash & rinse cycle. The belt has nothing to do with it. Pump is very simple to remove & replace, and not too expensive, it's plastic.

It won't spin until all the water is drained out. The drain pump may be blocked or faulty. Fix the drain pump fault first then deal with the filling issue. They will not be related.

Fills up with water, wont wash, drum motors works


Sounds as if this computer is trying to display an error code. If switching cycles manually makes it work, then it is most likely a bad circuit board. Try doing a google search for "Kenmore washer lights blinking" or something to that effect.

Bought in 2006 and quit working all together in 2007 then pulled it out today and the thing started working until the end of the wash cycle and wont come on at all again... it drained well but at the


Hello Kimberley,
It appears that a part of your question is cut off so i may be off base here but what i am reading is that your washer will go through the wash cycle and drain the wash water then just quit?? is that what is happeningIf yes that is whats going on i think what is happening is that after the wash cycle it fills with only COLD WATER for the rinse cycle and its not filling with the rinse water and just sits their until the rinse cycle water is filled and if its not getting cold water into the washer its not going to do anything If it is filling with cold water my apologies my bad for misinterpreting what the question reads and i ask ya to re-ask it.

My washer is only 4 months old. It was working fine and now it keeps stopping at the wash cycle- It fills up okay and then it gets stuck at the wash cycle....it keeps beeping and the wash light is...


Good day,
Knowing the problem would be nice, but if it's under one year of age, it is under factory warranty.
I wouldn't worry about it. Just call your selling dealer for a warranty repair. It should be totally free to you.

Washer fills up than starts draining while in wash cycle


Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.
