The washer is in the rinse process and it is making a buzzing noise almost like it is stuck....and it won't drain. Is there an easy explanation to this?

Kenmore washer model 12502100 goes into rinse cycle fills with water turns then stops. won't drain just stops hear humming or buzzing noise.

Try to put it on rinse on another cycle, like normal, heavy duty or delicate. If it works, then your timer is probably bad. If it doesn't work then maybe the pump. Best of luck

My GLTF 2940 makes a buzzing sound like a relay not pulling in all the way, during the rinse cycle. If you shut off the washer, and restart it on the rinse only cycle, it goes away.

its probably your cold water rinse only valves solenoid thats loose on the structure or the coil itself is loose,you may not hear it all the time especially during the initial wash start fill,try this, set the washer for cold water fill only on the washer,but turn off the water valves that supply water and start your machine to a wash cycle as normal,try this and see if it dry buzzes(without water),then try the same on the hot side,then with the water still off open up the machine and you can localize the buzzing noise

Kenmore washer doesn't drain

This is likely a pressure switch issue.

My machine will not rinse cloths. The cycly stops once it gets to rinse and it makes a lite buzzing noise.What could it be?

Most washers today are cold rinse only. The buzzing noise you hear may be the cold water valve.
1. Check cold water to make sure it is on.
2. Remove cold water hose from back of machine. Inspect washer cold water valve for debris. Can usually be cleaned with spray bottle with hard spray.
3. Cold water valve has failed.

If you need further assistance please let me know..

Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer

I'm in the process of tearing apart my Calypso, Ugh. I found the diagnostic chart inside the machine. 5L is actually 'SL' which means suds lock, and can be an indicator of a failed pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. Corrective action is to press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.
