When i close lid it just makes humming noise and wont start


If washer hums but doesn't fill, water isn't getting to washer check screens where fill hoses connect to washer. Screens may be blocked. If washer fills then hums check to make sure belt is on. Tip machine up to view belt underneath.

Model # 72852 Burning smell Drum does not turn but a humming noise When door is closed it hums without the start button being pushed.


f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

The wash cycle clicks on and a small amount of water enters the drum, as normal, but then there is just a humming noise and the drum does not move. When I put it on the rinse and spin cycle (there is...


I removed the bottom panel under the door and drained the the tub. There is a white filter housing that unscrews, but you need to have towels handy to catch the water that comes out. The machine appeared to work after that but it would'nt drain and it turns out that the humming noise was coming from the drain pump connected to the filter. I ordered a new drain pump assembly, which should be easy to replace since it is located at the front of the washing machine.

Washer will hum and will not drain water out!


You will have to either look under the machine or take the back off.
You will see the big motor which does the washing.
You will also see a small motor which drains the machine.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the pipes from the small motor.
It could be blocked up from congealed washing powder.
Or something may have blocked the pipe from the drum to the drain motor.
If it all looks ok and still doesn`t work, then the motor has siezed.
Very easy to replace
good luck
