If the motor is humming, ,could be a frozen Pump. or worn, or broken Pump Belt. , and it could even be the transmission, If this a direct drive, I think it is, Now Direct Drive Motors use a small, Usually inexpensive, Direct Drive motor coupling. It wears out because it'a Plastic and rubber. One end connects the motor, the other end to transmission. They do tend to go out on older washers. You will have to remove the cabinet to replace it. Then Pry the two clips off the pump and pull it off the motor shaft. Push it aside, leaving the hoses attached. Next put the rubber portion back on the gear case, align it with one of the holes at the 12:00 Position, be careful putting it back in place. Also make sure you do not move the motors shaft. Put everything back in place on the top clip and bottom clip,connect your wiring harness, and put all screws back in place. I hope this helps you.

you will need to take the tub out then inside the other tub there will be a filter screen before it drains out of the tank , that is probably clogged and needs to be cleaned , also you might want to check the hose that comes from the tank and goes to the pump

Water will not drain. sewer line is not pluged. Customer service says I could have a plugged filter at the pump ( we have dogs). How do I get to the pump to unclog it. Model EIFLS55IIW woody

Hi agnes! Washing machines, including those built by Frigidaire, have internal pumps. These pumps help drain out the water from the washer tub between the wash, rinse, and spin cycles. If the pump is damaged or the pump pulley system is frozen/stiff, the water can become trapped in the washer tub. In both cases, the pump assembly needs to be replaced. You can check by looking for a few signs that a pump is dying or already dead.
1 Start the washer and wait for the washer tub to fill with water. If you do not hear water or hear a motor whirring, the washer motor may be dead.
2 Open the washer lid in mid-cycle. Note whether or not the inner tub is still spinning around. The inner tub is the inside surface of the washing compartment with many holes for water draining. If the tub is not spinning but the motor is running, it is possible the pump is dead. Check the pump pulley by removing the pump from the washer and trying to rotate it by hand. If the pulley doesn't turn freely and is frozen or stiff, replace it. Also, if the agitator is moving but the tub isn't, this is a sign the pump is dying. For front-loading washers, do not attempt to open the door mid-cycle. Look through the glass door. If there is enough water to come up against the door, the pump is malfunctioning.
3 Wait for the washer to finish its cycle. Open the unit. If water is still in the tub, the pump is likely dying or dead.

Uneven rotation of basket, bang noise, water spills

if you can open the door,grab the inner basket at 9 and 3 o'clock and see if you can move it sideways,then again at 6 and 12 o'clock and move it up and down,if you can do this,then the drum spider trunnion is broken in behind the tub and the tub is loose which will require a new tub and trunnion as they are not sold separately at about $400.00

Washer motor humms and won't spin after filing up with water

remove the water pump from the motor but not from the hoses and start the washer. if it starts then you have a sock or something caught inside the pump holding the motor. remove the object or replace the pump if needed. if the motor wont start then unplug the washer,remove the motor and turn by hand. if it feels hard replace motor. if it moves then leave motor out and move the gear case where the motor connects by hand. if it wont move then 2 things may happen. 1)gear case lockup or a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

if the washer agitates but wont spin with the humming sound then I say the later. a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

Dryer hummes when you turn it on but does not rotate

This don't sound good most likely the motor is bad . OK first unplug the dryer take the belt off the motor now plug the dryer back in hit the start switch does the motor turn NOW??? If not its the motor. IF the motor does turn??? could be a weak motor OR Bad bearing in the Back of the tub.
Rotate the TUB by Hand UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST. IF the tub Rotate freely I would say you
Have a bad Motor But if the tub is very hard to turn now your looking at a bad Bearing

I have a Maytag Neptune model # MAH5500BWW. It appears that there is still water inside the tub after completing a wash cycle. I only noticed it as I tried to get a stuck sock from the top of the tub and...

the noise you're describing is normal - there is water in a sealed balance ring on the inner tub. To get rid of the mildew and smell, leave door open after cycle and use something like Affresh or "Smelly washer" stuff monthly or more often.

My Ariston front loader washer does not spin when it suppose to. I could hear the motor is running but the tub is not rotating. I also tried to rotate the tub by hand and there seems to be some friction...

Remove the rear cover and check the drive belt has not come off.
If the belt is off, there should be no resistance to turning drum, if there is, then there could be something trapped inside, or the main drum bearings could be failing.

Replacing belt on washing machine


Welcome to Fixya,

in replacing a belt please follow this step:
  • turn off and unplug your washer.
  • hook the belt first in drive motor pulley. ( a slot where your belt take place on top of the motor and sure that the belt is in place firmly to the slot of the pulley.)
  • start to hook the other end/loop of the belt to the tub pulley in one side of the pulley (it is more efficient in starting to hook the belt from inside to outside rotation.)
  • and hold the belt and rotate inside the pulley of the tub slowly
  • dont let the belt slip outside the slot of the pulley hold it firmly with your hands
  • hold the belt, clip to the slot of the pulley
  • but don't hold the belt alone or don't hold the belt in between of the pulley.
  • hold the belt inside the slot of the pulley in the tub pulley and rotate slowly. until it fix to the slot of the tub pulley.

If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
