SOURCE: Hi.

Sounds like the thermal protection is tripping. If the motor has a problem or is running with to high of Amps it will heat up and cause this problem.

SOURCE: Oil leaking from within body of washer after half

This is noticed on the Karcher washer and does not need any attention unless you are having a large spill over or leak. The oil oozes out when the pressure washer works for some time and is a result of a pressure leak when the washer is used for sometime.
I had seen this happen on mine for sometime , checked on all sides for any damage but there was none. So ignored but cleaned off the leak and was not seen then.

SOURCE: Our washer had been woring fine earlier this

Can you see my posting: "Karcher - no pressure", also my own comment where I describe my later technical findings - mashed up gearbox. Could it be the same problem as yours, where the motor sounds to be running just fine but there is simply no pressure produced?
If you can't see it add a comment to let me know and I will post you my full article

GE Washer stuck in wash cycle and not draining.


humming is usually the result of bad motor windings , are u saying it washes for 20 minutes or just stays on that cycle without doing any washing? a non moving drum can be a bad motor coupler or belt if belt driven.

Kenmore washer oil leak


That is a transmission issue. Once it starts leaking oil. The gearcase needs to be replace along with the clutch and coupler. The repair should run you about 150-250 dollars in parts. But I do believe it is worth the repair. If you are above average with tools and repair it can be done in about 30-45 mins and will allow you was to last longer than any new washer you can buy.

If you open the lid and spin the wash basket by hand will it rotate CCW with very little effort?

I'm an owner like you and with no error codes this could be a little more difficult to troubleshoot.

Without a known good Control Board and Motor Controller same deal difficult to troubleshoot.

The Washer Motor for the most part is rock solid I have not heard of anyone having to replace it. But there is always a first time and it has a 10 year warranty which may be up.

How deep to you want to get into trouble shooting? Can you tell if the humming is coming from the top of the machine LED Console area or bottom of the machine (left front side) Motor Controller area? You may want to remove the front panel to get a visual of the Motor and Motor Controller.

You can go into Service Mode and step thru the machine Diag codes and that may give you a start point to fault isolation.

Brown oil is leaking from the bottom of the washer


The only place oil can come from is the transmission. If you do not have a big leak, it may run a long time (read: maybe a year or more) before low oil level in the transmission causes major appliance damage, but it's time to start looking for a new washer. Many washers these days do not even use an oil filled transmission. Current GE machines do not, and the Whirlpool models comming soon don't either. If you can afford it, the front loading LG washers (which are direct drive, thus no transmission or clutch, and have a 10 year motor warranty) are the best, in my opinion.

2 problems with speed queen washing machine


The motor is not starting this is the humming noise not a good sound, try it in spin to see if the motor runs in this direction. You may have a motor issue because of the water leaking on the motor?

Now that you have the front panel removed you can look for leaks, you will need a flash lite, start a cycle on the small setting and look for where the water is coming from. If it is coming from the center of the tub above an aluminum case which is the transmission you need a tub seal, if the water is coming from somewhere else it could be a pump, or hose, or ?

Humming and not filling?


had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck
