The washer will fill up with water but it wont start washing or drain or spin you hear a humming noise then everything stops. Then in about 5 mins it will hum again then stop again

If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.

Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.

Will fill with water, but will only "hum" for

The problem you are having usually points to a bad lid switch (latch). If the machine will fill with water but not agitate or spin out you will need to replace the lid switch (latch). It is not resettable. Here is the part you need.

Only the rinse and spin cyl wont work on my whirlpool

first check the lid switch,open and close down the lid and listen for a clicking sound,if you don't hear it clicking you have a bad lid switchtry opening the lid with it on spin and stick a screw driver or anything that will fit in the hole where the lid closes down into the hole where the lid switch is,if it runs then you know the lid switch is bad.also on washers,in the rinse cycle only cold water is used in the final rinse,no cold water the washer won't fill and run,the valve will just hum.let me know how you make out,you could also have a bad timer.if you need more help send the model number

Washer will fill with water, but will not spin or empty water

What you have there is a broken lid switch I would be willing to bet. I have 2 videos here one shows how to access the lid switch and the other shows how to replace it.

Washer fills up but the will not wash

sounds like something is clogged in your pump under the washer.

see the motor drives the pump, but if it is clogged, the motor will not turn.

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter

Kenmore Model# 110.25842400

Yes that is the correct lidswitch. (i checked via model # on Before you replace the switch, Turn the washer manually into spin and see if it will. If it spins your lid switch is ok. If there is a humming after the washer fills then your motor is bad. It trys to work but cant. if it does nothing after it fills then you have a bad timer most likely. But see if it will spin when you turn the timer to spin manually.
