Yes. Remove the basket top and fill it with water ... as much as it will take ... replace the top and try again.

If I hook the wires up backwards on the water pump on a encore energystar wht would it do??? It pumps put seams like the drum turning backwards lol ????


If you have two wires and hooked up correctly, than it should only turn in one direction. Make sure the pump is installed correctly (facing the correct direction of flow)

The water dispenser on my new side by side hums when it dispenses water. Is that the correct sound or is it not actually pumping. Water comes out slow


The humming sound your hearing is electricity being sent to the valve, causing an elctromagnetic effect to open the solenoid to allow water to pass. Slow water could be from a few things, a clogged line, or build up in the valve or from a filter that needs to be change. Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out.

Pump hums but won't run


awwhhh it sounds as if you stored your pump dry all winter long ill bet, well ya just cant do that after it pumps salt water all summer , salt has crusted up inside pump and valves , try a hot water dose (not on motor) that might get it going again (repeat several times)
otherwise your gonna need to take it all apart clean in hot water and grease all up with foodgrade waterproof grease (see kitchen faucet parts section of hardware store)
on a salt water pool you have to store your filter and pump filled/capped with RV antifreeze (foodgrade) any good rv store sells it
salt wont crust up inside then

When I turn on my STA-RITE 1.5 HP pump, it makes a humming sound.


A humming noise is fairly normal if the pump is running and pumping correctly. I am guessing this is not the case. Usually it is just a stuck impeller that is the culprit. Power down the unit and open the pump housing to access the impeller. Then gently turn the impeller feeling for resistance (some resistance is normal from the magnets of the motor). If everything seems ok close and secure the pump housing. Try powering the unit on and see if it starts up correctly. If it is still having issues manually prime the pump. If the pump runs correctly for a few minutes after manually priming but slows or stops you have a leaky seal or fitting to find. Finding the seal is not hard but will take a little time and patience. With your garden hose, very carefully run water over each joint and fitting with the pump running. It will take a minute or so of water running over a leaky seal for the pump to prime so take your time. Make sure not to get water on the motor as it can deliver a very nasty shock and destroy the motor. If none of this gets you up and running the cause may be the motor is bad and needs replacing.

Washer did not spin out message E20 appeared on panel. Attempts to start just humming noise.


is the humming comming from the motror trying to run or is it just a humming sound if the machine has washed correctly upto that point then check water pump for faults and or blockage machine will not advance if water trapped in machine the humming sound could be the water pump either free spinning indicating a blockage or humming as it is trying to run indicating a faulty pump

My new AO Smith 2HP pool pump won't pump water, just hums


I'm guessing that you replaced the motor that goes to the pump, not the pump itself. You know the motor works just fine. Is the motor rotating in the correct manner(clockwise or counterclockwise) in relation to the rotation of the pump? Have you checked the pump to see if the impeller is working/rotating? Is the motor hooked up to the pump correctly, so that the motor is turning the impeller? Are all connections to the pump tight, so there are no suction leaks? Have you primed the pump and purged it of any air locks?

Pipes humming in house


From your description, I am guessing you are on a deep well with this answer. I think you have an issue with the well pump. To isolate it do this...........

Turn the main supply valve off to the house. Your well tank should have a hose bib on the well tee. Hook a hose up to that and run it outside. Open the valve to the hose until you heard the pressure click on which activates the pump. After the click close the valve and listen for the hum. If it still hums it is the Well and not the piping in your home.

Will follow-up.............

Please rate this response after testing and Good Luck, Phil
