Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Maytag A183 top loading washing machine. It recently starting making a loud buzzing noise when you first pull out the knob to start it. If you turn it off and on a couple of times, the sounds stops and the water fills and the washer works fine. Please help me determine what the problem could be and if it is something I could fix myself.

That loud buzzing noise is your water fill valve. First turn off the water valves to the washer and unscrew the hoses and check that the filters are not corroded or clogged. I had a maytag washer that was doing the same thing and finally the lid switch and timer had to be replaced. I would unplug the washer and remove the screws along the upper rear cover behind the timer assembly and check that all connections are secure. Unplug them then plug back in if neccessary. Then put the cover back on plug back in and try it.

If it still does it you might need the water valve replaced.

Machine filled with water then just began beeping. Never started to wash the clothes. When turned off and then on again, it makes a buzzing noise and nothing happens.


If your buzzing noise stops after a few seconds, it could be the motor failing to start. If it sounds like a signal buzzer, it could be indicating the lid open, or a failed lid switch.

It makes buzzing noise and doesnt work


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
