Sounds like the DC motor on the bottom has died. I think it comes from New Zealand. It runs around 300 bucks. Hope you have a home warranty...

Are the taps turned on. Sorry have to ask. if the machine is making a humming noise then the fill valve is operating but no water is present. If the machine is dead quite then you have another problem

Replaced the lid switch on my top loading washer and it fills with water and it still wont start.


Hello,
There are a couple things that could cause that

1) The water level switch,but if it filled to normal level and the water stopped that is pretty unlikely.

2) the motor,if it just sits there silent and no humming/buzzing noise the motor is most likely not the problem,if a heavy buzzing is heard the motor needs to be replaced.

3) again if it just sits there and wont make any sounds no matter where its set at,the timer is the very probable trouble.

I hope this helps you diagnose your washer trouble,
Gene

Wont fill when it goes to rinse cycle just sits and hums


There's no water at all If there's no water at all, make these checks: Is there water getting to the machine? Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way? If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

GE washing machine does not run, gives humming noise


A washing machine is a simple product.

When trouble shooting anything you have to know what is supposed to do and what is it not doing.

At the begining of a washing machine cycle the machine fills with water until a switch is made telling the machine it is full and ready to agitate. Since it never fills it will stick in that part of the cycle.

When you start a cycle and no water enters the drum you have one of three problems:

1. The water supply is shut off.
2. The solenoid valve that supplies the water is not opening.
3. No power to the washing machine.

Since you are hearing a hum, the machine seems to be trying to activate that valve,
The humming noise comes from the electromagnetic field that activates the valve,

Washer makes noise, will not fill


turn it on and just makes a hummins noise??? not filling with water??? at very least the machine if powered correcly will fill with water, the humming if happening is hte washer trying to fill check your incoming water supply. try alo changing water temp select from cold/warm/hot.

hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.

Will not agitate or spin,makes loud noise during those cycles


Sounds like coupling gears between transmission and motor... they did away with the belt and went direct drive with coupling gears. It can pump water out but nothing else. water pump is mounted to front of motor is why it will pump water out.
