Question about Whirlpool LSN1000LW Top Load Washer
I just get a humming noise when I try to start a wash cycle. I also get the same noise when moving the control knob to a spin cycle to see if that worked or not. My machine is just under 5 years old..is this all the longer it should last?
Is your water turned on if it is you have a bad water valve

Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
If it does not work correctly after that,
Replace your timer.

SOURCE: Washer won't fill on wash cycle
Sounds as though you need to disconnect the hoses, inspect the
screen inside the hose to see if it has a collection of copper oxides
and other mineral deposits. Remove the screen and use an old
tootbrush to clean it thoroughly. This usually does the trick.
Tried to post this earlier but could not get past the "code" entry
censor! Guess when you are 80 and female it is harder to post to
a "solution" page.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Carroll Mcknight - Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the unit may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs and to move forward accurately.
