Check to see if you have any obstructions (broken glass, etc.P)) that may have worked their way into the drain sump area in the bottom of the dishwasher. It is possible that something has jammed the pump motor, hence the humming sound.

Most dishwasher use one pump/motor to both wash and pump out the diswasher, so if it gets jammed, it won't do much except hum. You might have to remove the dishwasher from under the counter to remove the pump unit to get at the obstruction, but be sure to disconnect the power, water inlet and discharge lines first. You'll also need plenty of towels and a sponge to get as much water as possble out of the dishwasher first. Have a bucket handy!

Normally broken glass or small stuff can get into the pump mechanism and lodge between the impeller and the pump housing, causing the motor to jam and hum, as it cannot spin freely. With a few basic hand tools (nut drivers and screwdriver) you should be able to get at the problem and resolve it fairly easily.

Worse case is that the motor has failed (has gone bad) and will need to be replaced, but it is worth first checking for a n obstruction to determine if that's the problem before having to buy an expensive motor.

My washing machine will fill but it will not agitate or spin. It makes a looud humming noise like it is trying to work. It is a Kenmore 70 series Model # 20702


Possible that the motor is faulty or is stuck and makes the noise. it will be good to remove and check the motor after disconnecting the power cord. Also it is possible that the CAPACITOR is faulty and so the motor HUMS. Please check this out.
Please check if the belt or the drive is struck and so the motor is jammed.

The washer stopped all of the sudden. It was full of water, but even when I unplugged the washer and recycled the machine, it would not fill up. It makes a humming noise when I try to start the machine,...


If it fills and drains then I would suspect the motor coupler is bad, if it's a direct-drive washing machine. Most of them are, kenmore 80 or 90 series.

My dishes on the top rack are no longer getting clean. I don't think any water is going to the top. The dishes on the bottom get clean but have a soap residue on them.

Humming noise after water fill and will not wash


Hi. this is a failed timer device. simply replacing the timer control module will eliminate these issues you are having.

It fills & dumps the water with no problem BUT it will not wash the dishes it just makes a humming noise.


OK, i would test the motor to make sure that it is working properly. this is a two speed motor and, if the windings are bad or separating, it will not be able to switch speeds. if the motor checks out ok, this will confirm control failure. replace timer or control board in this case.

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!

Sounds like the fill valve screens or fill hose screens need cleaning or replacing.Also if you are using burst resist hoses braided steel type some have check valves that if are defective may cause a no fill.
