Kenmore 11025102310 washer isnt working. I press the start button, and the sensing button lights up for just a second and there is a couple of minutes of a grinding type of noise but then nothing.


When the START/PAUSE/Unlock Lid is pressed, the washer will first perform a self-test on the lid lock mechanism. You will hear a click, the basket will make a slight turn, and the lid will unlock briefly before locking again. Once the lid has locked the second time, the washer will use short, slow spins to estimate the load size. These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load and you may hear the hum of these spins. If the sensing light is on, then washer is working properly. You will hear the motor turn the basket in short pulses to thoroughly wet the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak in to the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added for the load. You may also hear water flowing through the dispenser, adding detergent to the load.

NOTE: Avoid opening the lid during sensing. The sensing process will start over when the washer is restarted. The sensing light may also come on during the Soak and Wash portions of the cycle. This is normal.

If there's no water, then Page 13

Washer won't run or fill, washer stops working, or wash light remains on (indicating that the washer was unable to fill appropriately)

Check for proper water supply.

Both hoses must be attached and have water flowing to

inlet valve.

Both hot and cold water faucets must be turned on.

Check that inlet valve screens have not become clogged.

Check for any kinks in inlet hoses, which can restrict water flow.

Or you have an inlet valve that is not working

Why does my GE washer turn off during a cycle?

I purchased a 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Metallic Carbon, ENERGY STAR.
I had issues when I used the machine for the first time. I started by loading some clothes and then the detergent, bleach and softener into the respective dispensers. I used the smart dispenser for the detergent, there are 2 detergent dispensers. Then I waited and ended up with water and a machine that would not spin .I kept getting the error message " Sensing " and it made light clicking sounds but was told that this was normal. I then waited 40 minutes and still no improvement. clothes stayed in the same spot.. nothing was happening but the Sensing Scroll Message.. I had to push the power button to stop it. I then pushed start but I still kept getting the error message scroll " Sensing "
I started over by setting it to drain & spin. It worked and my clothes got spun finally. Since I kept getting the sensor message and that is all it would say is " Sensing" .... I decided to try something else.
I powered it off and started a new load.
Next Load Trial:
I added soap to the detergent dispenser " Not the detergent smart dispense. Then i pushed the control lock button and last I hit the start button and whoala It works now.
Try getting familiar with your washer. do some light loads until you figure it out. It will eventually get where you need it to ,just be patient. Now I wash loads easy as pie.. I hope this helped you out with your problem. ;) . I am still learning mine and will post future issues and fixes if I come across any. Thank You.

Washer will not start on any cycle. Any position

It may be the lid switch? If the lid isn't shut, then on most models the machine won't start.

Anymore queries, please post and I will try to help you.
