Washer fills, but won't start wash cycle....makes buzzing sound

I have an old Maytag top load washer that will fill with water and when it's full, it will just make a buzzing sound and the wash cycle won't start. Sometimes, if I just leave it on, the buzzing will go away after a few minutes and it will finish washing. My roommate tried leaving it on and she said it started smoking. What should I do

No water will pour down to start a wash


Hi,
First is the supply turned on? Do you hear a buzzing sound when starting a load? if not, it may just be the fill valve assy/ solenoid. A reasonable cost for this part is about $15-20 plus 1/2-3/4 hours labor. If so the buzz indicates the valve is attempting to open or opening and there is an obstruction in water line or supply may be off. Do any of the cycles work? If nothing works some models lock out with a lid switch. I have seen alot of failures in this model see link Maytag Legacy Washers amp Dryers I hope this answer helps in some way. Hard to diagnose when not at unit.-Mtlgod

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.


it's the motor that makes the humming sound..it may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..
