After it stops when fully opened it will not go back down when I push the button. Like it doesn't know it should reverse directions!


It can be a relay in the electronic circuit or if you can hear the motor buzzing its the limitswitch at the endpoint of the door that does not interrupt the run-up current to the manual operation.

I have a Kenmore elite washing machine and when I power it on it goes on . then I push the start button and I hear a humming noise and the timer is flashing . Please help.


oh oh a humming noise usually not a good sign, and usually is from a bad motor with windings that have gone out. in ur case u may be hearing what u think is a humming noise? but in reality may be a bad push start button which can sound like a hum but is more of a buzzing sound

Washer states sensing with a buzz sound?


Hello keisha, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is making a buzzing sound until the cancel or start button has been pushed. It sounds like it could be a possible issue within the door either not being fully closed or it could be a defective switch. I would recommend resetting your appliance which can be done by disconnecting power to the appliance for roughly ten minutes. Please comment back if that did not help correct the issue. -Matt

Quinny buzz clip to open missing


Hi Ellen

The transport clip is a safety measure to ensure the chassis remains closed in transit - like when it's in your car boot, to make sure it doesn't unfold while you're driving. It is available as a spare part item, RRP 10GBP (full info can be found on our Note for Buzz spares)

The click noise you hear when you unfold the chassis is not related to the fold lock. This is a safety measure designed to warn you not to continue forcing the chassis open as the locks are not completely disengaged ready for the chassis to be unfolded. By forcing beyond this noise you may cause damage to the fold / unfold mechanism. If you hear the click, allow the chassis to fold again and try again. Ensure the button is fully depressed / the other side button is fully pulled forward before attempting to unfold again and you should not hear a click. If you do, it would be advised to book the chassis in for inspection & repair required.

Hello Mike Brady - From what you have described it seems like the dryer is experiencing a wiring failure or a communication error with the control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

turn the machine off at the wall , leave off for 30 secs , switch back on

give the door an extra shove as this may not be fully closed
the on/off button will be a push in type , the start button is usually much smaller

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.
