My washer stopped working. It is filled with water but will not drain or run the cycles. I do notice that when turning the knob i get a humming noise and then it goes away. Any ideas.

 

Thanks Ron

    By Removing the hoses does allow the water to drain out of the washer. The washer is still filled with water. I am going to take on this project tomorrow. Just was wondering.



     



    Thanks

    ok another dumb question. How does the back or front cover come off on the washer machine so i can access the pump. Also found out then when i turn the knob to reset it allows water to come in but no drain. What is the easy way to drain this water.



     



     



    Thanks

  Sounds like something in pump.  This is causing motor to hum and not turn.  Motor is going off on thermal overload.  This is why the humming stops.  It may be possible for you to tilt washer back and access pump.  Remove clip on bottom and top and pull pump off motor.  Try and turn pump.  Remove hoses and see if you can see obstruction.

      Try removing pump from motor without removing hoses.  Then try and see if motor will now run.

My Kenmore washer (series 90) stopped working in between the rinse and spin cycles. It will not drain (half full as we speak), agitate or spin. It will fill with water but once it reaches the proper water...


Something stuck in Pump. Pump on your model is driven by washer motor, so if Pump can't turn, motor can't work and will hum until it overheats and shuts down.

Kenmore washer model 12502100 goes into rinse cycle fills with water turns then stops. won't drain just stops hear humming or buzzing noise.


Try to put it on rinse on another cycle, like normal, heavy duty or delicate. If it works, then your timer is probably bad. If it doesn't work then maybe the pump. Best of luck

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


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!

Humming from Water Solenoid area


It may have some dirt or sediment clogging it making it work harder than usual.

Frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles


You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

Washer keeps stopping during any cycle


the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor second water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well
