Fl is the code for a pump takind too long to drain. you have the buzzing so hopefull it is just clogged with small sock or debris from a yarn type item. to access pump (there are two types) unplug washer if you can bring it outside as this can hold lots of water. if not have a large wet vac handy. tilt washer 45 degrees to access bottom panel . remove three 5/16 screws, remove panel. the pump has one beige hose,one black. unclip or remove 4 torx screws depending on the type pump. clear pump. re-assemble. if indoors very important to slowly remove beige hose while running vacuum if not several gals of water will rush out. if this is a pump with the grey housing and it occurs immediately you have probably stripped the pump shaft and will have to replace it with the newre style pump. which will be the same procedure just one more step. the pump retails about 88 dollars. good luck

I have an affinity washer and dryer. The last loand did not complete its cycle. It is partially full of water, but not enough to seap out. Itmakes a buzzing sound and will not spin. It is not the type of...


It sounds like the drain pump has stopped. If it still has water in it and you turn it on (in the spin only cycle) the drain pump should be running and you sould be hearing the water drain. The washer will not spin until the water is out. Depending on how handy you are determines whether you can access the drain pump and remove the obstrustion. There is also a trap to catch debries from going into the pump. This could be plugged, but normally you don't hear a buzz. You hear the drain pump working but no water going out. Good luck

Fills with waters starts making a buzzing sound


Check to see if there is something(sock) in the pump. If not, try spin washer with pump hanging down, but not with hoses off.

MY WASHER WILL NOT SPIN. iT MAKES A LOUD BUZZING


Sounds like a broken motor coupler for sure, the motor shaft will still spin the drain pump, but drive between the motor and transmission is lost. Part# 285753A. Have fun. If you need breakdown info let me know.

Kenmore front loading washer won't drain or aggitate, just buzzes


take the front bottom panel off. inside there is a drain pump. you need to remove filter from drain pump its look like a knob. be careful because their is water inside your drain pump so use some big thing for water. clean your filter. put filter back tight. i hope will solve your problem.

Washing machine makes buzzing noise


Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Washer making buzzing sound during spin cycle,then stopped during wash still has water in tge clothes,buttons light up as if going to work but nothing happens jusy buzzing noise


If I understand correctly, the washer made a sound in the spin cycle but didn't actually spin the clothes dry?
If so you may have something in the pump that is not allowing it to pump out. Disassemble the pump and make sure it is clear of any debris.
