Question about Washing Machines
Hi and welcome to Fixya. Usually when a unit stops in mud-cycle and the motor buzzes there is something lodged between the wash tub and the outer tub.
Draining must be done manually before you can open the door. You can try dropping the drain hose down and gravity drain the washer. If that does not work then the only other option is to unplug the unit and disconnect the tub to pump hose. Be prepaired for an immediate water mess if you manage to get the hose completely free of the fitting all at once. You only need to drain it until the water level is below the door seal.
Once you get the water out open the door then sue a flashlight to search for what it is that is preventing the tub from turning.
Don't forget to reconnect and clamp the drain hose if you disconnected it and plug the washer back in.
Thanks for using Fixya. Kelly
