The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

I have a Kenmore smart wash quiet pack 9 HE5t and when I try to turn it on it make a noise but won't turn on


Please check the motor belt , the drain pump and the inlet valve. If the noise seems to come from any of these it is possible that it trips off the circuit due to a fault and so must be confirmed.
You can remove the connection to the seperate items to confirm if the panel switches on.

Check to see if electricity is being fed to the motor. Best bet is to get a hold of a schematic and trace out the wiring.
You also might have a bad board.

My Kenmore 90 Series electric dryer makes a humming noise when I push the start button. It heats up, run for a short while, then stops. Before it stops there is a clicking noise like a circuit or safety...


There's possibilty that the bearing is going bad. It would cause the belt to slide alittle when the drums starts to turn. The strain on the motor because of the bad bearing can cause the motor overload and shut down until it cools, then it can be restarted.

WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats


Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

Agitator wont work, quiet hum and smell


Noises
Often something works it's way into the pump and makes a clicking or scraping noise. Another bad spot on this washer is the snubber ring that sits between the base and the drive unit.
1) Whirlpool, Inglis, (some) Kenmore washer..... Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator...picture1picture2.
(2) Whirlpool, Inglis, (some) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off...remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator.

My 18 month old kenmore elite oasis quiet pak 2 gas dryer smells as if there were a fire in it!!!!  and ironically, when i noticed the smell i also saw water around the base of the kenmore elite oasis top...


Hello plz make sure the gas burner does not have any lint build up on burner assembly inside the machine / plz clean.That usually causes a burnt smell. If there is no error codes on the display and the machines is operating fine you are chasing a ghost. If there is a pump or motor over load an error code should come up on the display.
