A water level switch regulates the washer's fill volumn. The switch is usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. It works on water pressure on the air in the tube. The switch can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. The switch should have continuity. If not, it is defective and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Crosley washer won't agitate


Hello Carroll Mcknight - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs and to move forward accurately.

MY GE front loader washer won't fill with water or spin. I hear a hum when I turn it on and it sounds as if it's about to start a cycle but nothing happens.


It sounds as if your water valve is either clogged or the solenoid is stuck and not letting any water in. Here is a checklist of things you should do to help isolate the problem:
1) check to make sure the water is on
2) turn the water off and remove the water lines and verify that both the lines and the screens on the valve are clear of debris, calcium, etc.
3) take the top off the machine where you can actually see the valve, turn the machine on and see if the vavle is the humming noise that you are hearing. If so and no water is coming out then the valve is bad.

Washing machine wont fill with water, just hums. Spin works fine, just wont fill with water.


The humming noise is caused by the water valve solenoids trying to open. You will need to remove the hoses from the back of the machine and see if there is any calcium or water deposit on the screens in the water vavles. If there is try cleaning it out and testing, if there is none, the water fill vavle will need to be replaced, you can order parts for it at, Reliable Parts by using your model number. Valve should cost around $45. For information on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
