Question about Washing Machines
MY WASHING MACHINE IS MAKING A HUMMING NOISE WHEN I GO TO START IT...I WENT TO EMPTY IT OUT AND THE WATER WAS STILL IN THERE ALSO..I TOOK ALL THE WET CLOTHES OUT AND IT STILL DOES NOT START UP.
Check to make sure that there is not something stuck inside the drain pump. My folks had this same problem... bought a new washer and asked me to help them throw the old one away. I put it in the pickup but before actually taking it to the dump I decided to see what I could do. I took it home and it had the same symptoms you describe. I opened up the pump and there was a hair pin stuck in there. I pulled it out and the thing runs great. My folks didn't want it back... free upgrade for me. Heh.

Good Morning Larry Looney, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire frontload washer is making a humming noise while in spin cycle. This could be a potential problem with your motor or drum bearing. In order to find the proper cause of the humming noise I would highly recommend having a professional technician come out to your home for diagnosis and repair. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases as well as any future issues. -Matt

Hi John - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. The humming noise is mainly caused due to the drainage hose/pump possibly being clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may be experiencing another possible issue with the faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Hello 2cats - First, is the drain pump making a humming noise? If so, the unit could possibly have a restriction in the drain line. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Other possibilities could be a faulty door lock, timer, pump, or control board not communicating correctly. In this case I would contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose and repair the washer.
