The water cannot be drained if the drain pump is working and the washer will not advance to the spin cycle if the door lock and switch assembly is faulty. Please indicate whether water is being pumped out or not. If water is being pumped out but the drum does not spin then the door lock and switch is most likely faulty. Try to locate in which part of the washer the clicking sound is coming from.

Provide further details for specific and more accurate troubleshooting advice. Describe how the washer works during the cycle.

It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

I have a kenmore 80 series washer that goes thru all the cycles except that it doesn't drain after rinsing and this is my serial and model number if you need it: mod20852990 ser4549516


does it drain after the wash cycle before therinse cycle? if not there are usually 2 belt on the bottom of the washer, one is for the aggitator the other for the water pump. check to see if the belt is still attached and also take the drain hose down to floor level to see if the water gravity feeds out, if it does not pour out then your pump would likely be clogged from lint.

Water leaking from my Maytag Neptune model FAV6800AWW Serial number 15646382GA Leaks during wash cycle imediately and during complete cycle. Enough water to saturate 2-3 towels and clothes come out...


Could be a Tub Seal leak my 1st choice. Could also be a leak caused by a cracked outer tub, issues from the hoses from the drain line connections to the drain pump, drain pump and or drain line.

Are you going to try to DIY the fix?

Frigidaire Gallery Series # GLTF 2940FS The washer stopped running in mid rinse cycle. When I try to start it a clicking sound occurs.


You will need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing obstructing or restricting the flow of water.Once you know that is clear and the problem returns then you might have to change the main control board and possible the door lock.Also make sure to check the motor and all the wiring the motor.

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
