Re: Lady Kenmore Washer
Possibly a bad fill valve. If you're hearing a noise, it sounds like the valve is getting power, but isn't opening to allow water in, or is clogged. I would check your valve inlets on the back of the washer, first. Turn off the water and disconnect the hoses on the back of the washer. The water inlet screens are located in the valve fittings. Take a cotton swap and clean them out thoroughly. If they are clear, you may want to invest in a new replacement valve. Let me know if you need to pursue this option and I can give you the steps necessary to replace. It's not a very difficult repair job. I hope this helps you.

Do you happen to hear a humming noise coming from the machine after the tub fills? This might indicate that the motor is spinning, but the belt that connects the motor to the rest of the machine works is broken. It is located underneath the washer. Tip the washer a bit and have a look. If it's broken, you'll probably find the belt laying on the floor. Take that to an appliance parts store where they can match it up with a new one. Installation is not too difficult. The belt will go around the motor pulley, the transmission pulley, the water pump, and in some cases, a spring-loaded tensioner. I hope this helps! :) -Jason
There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:Is there water getting to the machine?Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
kenmore tumble action washer model#417.44152400,
Washer is approximately 3 years old. Will not drain or spin. When it tries to spin, clicking noise heard inside of unit. Would a clog insie the lines disable the spin cycle ?
You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go
through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has
filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise
as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid
is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and
the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but
the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how
expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's
wrong beforehand. Here are a list of common vibration noises
Noisy, vibrating, off-balance Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed against the corners? The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are tightened. See “Level the Washer.” Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level? Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location Requirements.” Is the load balanced? Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.” Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle changes from washing to draining or spinning? When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles between cycles you may hear noises that are different from your previous washer. These are normal washer noises. Is the washer gurgling or humming?
Is the washer level? The wash load should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the Installation Instructions. Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions. • Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These are normal washer noises.
Let me know if any of these are the solution! Huuum
