My Maytag bravo washer won't drain and is buzzing from what I think is a drain pump. Do I need to replace that part and if so what is it?

it may be the pump but buzzing sounds normally indicate a faulty solenoid
if the pump is trying to spin , it could be from something in the impeller ( button , bra wire , bobby pin , coin etc) in which removal of the item will again allow the pump to work
the solenoid that allows the pump to work or water to get to the pump may be the fault

No water will pour down to start a wash

First is the supply turned on? Do you hear a buzzing sound when starting a load? if not, it may just be the fill valve assy/ solenoid. A reasonable cost for this part is about $15-20 plus 1/2-3/4 hours labor. If so the buzz indicates the valve is attempting to open or opening and there is an obstruction in water line or supply may be off. Do any of the cycles work? If nothing works some models lock out with a lid switch. I have seen alot of failures in this model see link Maytag Legacy Washers amp Dryers I hope this answer helps in some way.

I own a maytag neptune washing machine. It was working o.k. and suddenly it won't start. I push the start button and it buzzes and shows a message that says,"It appears the door was not opened...

Hi Debi:
First I suggest to try unplugging the unit for 60 seconds to reset the control board. If that doesn't work then open the dispenser and remove the softner and bleach container. There is a cord near the front you can pull to open the door lock. If you still have issues with your door lock after manually opening the door, you will need to order and replace the door latch assembly.

Also I could bet you need to replace your door latch assembly. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

You need to unclog your water pump. Sounds like something big is stuck in there if it's buzzing. Remove both large black water pump hoses and check hoses as well as the pump.
