Hi
The buzzing noise is due to a shorted wire in motor wire harness or due to a burnt winding on motor. You would need to check and replace the motor if necessary. Please check the below video for replacement/troubleshooting--

Try not to **** up any more water. Don't use until you can dry it out well. Hopefully you live in a warm climate so that will happen sooner than later.

I have a Kenmore 600 washermachine it won't spin or rinse. It would fill up with water and go all the way through the cycle until it got to the last rinse cycle and just stop and make a buzzing noise...


hi there the first thing ill tell you is that the washer needs to drain water before it can spin there are only a few factors that prohibit this operation a faulty lid switch secound a blown or blocked water pump being a fisher paykel they are famous for jammed water pumps as they decided when they built the sysyem to turn the water pump upside down this causes a lot of stress on the water pump see if you can lay the hose on the ground and get all the water out i belive the machine will then start to spin dry. in this case it is the water pump and have it replaced its a simple operation if you can order the part fromf/p you simply turn the washer on its side depress the white latch next to the pump turn the pump clockwise till ity release from machine disconnect power supply plug and fit new unit as per reverse


best of luck

p.s the buzzing noise is the water pump humming because it can not spin the problem is definitly your water pump have it repplaced and it will work fine

please take the time to rank my reply if your happy with it.

Bulb has gone out and now makes a loud noise


The noise depending on where it came from may be normal. You wont be sure unless a TV repairman checks the boards to know for sure, or you could replace the bulb and hope for the best.

Dryer problem


You need to listen for the motor working ? Open the dryer door hold the door switch in and start the dryer . A buzzing sound may indicate a bad motor. If you hear a slight spinning noise ,it may just be the belt.

How much water did you have in the basement? Back in June we had flooding in the area, and the my recommendation to everyone has been to replace any appliance that was under any water.

If the motor was under water, wires or the gas valves, these components will corroded and could cause you future safety concerns.
