Whirpool Duet hums but will not start.

Whirpool Duet has power and hums but will not start. Is this a problem with the drive motor or what? I found a quarter on the top of the blower housing that was shorting out a connection. I'm afraid the motor coils are now grounded. Any advice is appreciated.

My duet washer will not spin. it try's but doesn't get going


Please check if during the spin cycle there is voltage on the motor.
If so check the capacitor to the motor, if the motor hums there is fault in the capacitor or the drive being jammed.

110.64872400 kenmore dryer 80 series. dryer makes humming noise when start button is pushed, can turn drum manually. please help


The humming noise is most likely coming from the timer motor and not from the drive motor. This characterizes a problem with a blown thermal fuse which is wired in series with the drive motor and located on the blower housing. Power to the motor is cut when the thermal fuse blows open and consequently the drive motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the drive motor cannot run.

Unplug the dryer or disconnect power then pry the lower access panel off with a flat-head screwdriver as shown.

Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct to access the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat.

Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting of this problem and the parts diagram. The cycling thermostat(part number

My whirpool duel washer agitates or washes but


have you replaced the motor control. i had this happen 1 year ago and had to have it replaced. i am having the same problem and have done some testing but have not found anything else. you can buy this part from whirpool for about $160 delivered to your home. this is exactly how it acted the 1st time it went out. some loads would spin out great and the next load would be wet.

It's not really a solution but I checked my paper work from when I purchased the washer and found out that I got the extended warranty, so I have called in a service call.
