My moms pipes froze to her washing machine. They thawed and the machine filled with water but they won't wash. She can hear a buzzing sound like the machine is trying to wash the clothes but nothi

Yes , I think the valves also must have jammed in the process and when the hot water filled up in due course it must have released.
It is best to switch off water supply to the machine in such times.

My lg washer won't let water in on all cycles except rinse and spin and then it doesn't spin properly

Check the electrovalve for the supply of the water and the belt that runs the cylinder of the washer with the electric motor.

The washer filled up with water but not won't drain spin and is making a funny noise . It's an older magic chef.

The most common issue would be the coupler for the motor transmission. It is a rubber coupling and when it goes bad it makes a grinding, or whirring noise and the machine won't spin or wash. You need to remove the cabinet and look directly under the tub where the motor and tranny connect. This is a reletivly easy and cheap fix. Just google how to replace motor coupling on a top load washer and you may also include your make and model for more direct instructions.

I have a fisher and Paykle GW612 washing machine, it won;t drain the water and won;t do the spin cycle. It now is making a huming noise. I think it is the motor that has an issue?

There should be a tech sheet located underneath the control panel that has the procedure for putting the machine in "diagnostic mode" and you can easily run the water pump by itself. Listen for a "hum" sound- If you hear a hum instead of a running water pump, then something is keeping that pump from turning for sure.

If this is the case, then you would need to check your water pump. It is located underneath the machine in the right front corner (as viewed from the front of the machine)
There is a black plastic external cooling fan impeller that you can spin with your finger (of course unplug the machine first) and see if the pump spins freely. You should also examine the pump for signs of leakage or corrosion. You may simply have an object that was left in someone's pocket that has become lodged in the pump. Pump removal requires no tools, however you need to first bail out as much of the remaining water in the wash tub as possible.

The drum doesn;t turn during wash or spin cycle

Kindly remove the back panel of the unit and check whether the belt is properly fixed if it is ok means check the wire connection if everything is fine. kindly check the motor humming sound once the water is filled if you find the humming sound means kindly replace the motor

Machine filled with water but no nothing.

if you can hear the motor running but no agitation then your motor coupling has broken,,it is between the motor and tranny!

Whirlpool noise

Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry

Washer problems

if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

alot of times the washer will drain but we hurriedly cut it off when we hear noise or the water is out but it never spinned and so the clothes are soapy wet...
