    After the 1st two load of washing clothes, the next load can't start when pushing start button. The machine keep making buzzing noise. Not sure whether this is a safety feature to prevent overload or overheat. It worked again next day.

    In my expireence the motor does this..I would try and wait about 1 hr after it first does it...then push the lid switch down..while trying a wash cycle...and spin the inside tub with your hand and see if it very carefull doing this...if so the motor is overheating and not starting..

Danfoss 103 timer is making a constant buzzing noise!!...everything's works fine but I want to stop this buzzing noise. Any actions I should take or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

How much wattage is going through the timer and what is its rated load max? try unplugging whatever is plugged into it and see if it stops but if you exceeded the max load might be damage to the internals which can cause that buzz.

Makes buzzing noise with each cycle. Does not do anything.

1st, if you take the back plate off the washer, you will be having a lot of work to put it back on, it is very tough to replace, as the cabinet is designed to be removed from the front.

2nd, if the motor is running, but nothing is running, then the coupler may be broken or stripped. and it will need replacing, the part is about $12.

3rd, if the buzz is coming from the motor, but the motor is NOT running, or spinning, then the transmission may be frozen and in that case you may need to replace the washer, as transmissions are about $165 for just the part.

We bought two Ionic Breeze's abt ten yrs ago and have always worked fine but now they "buzz" as they run. Not a steady buzz but every ten seconds or so. They are cleaned wkly and never had a problem bfor....

Hi, it sounds to me like a relay of some type buzzing? I would see if you can remove the control cover to excess all component's, after you unplug it 1st, and then plug them back in and try and locate this buzzing sound? Funny, both are doing it? They have lasted a decade, and you have kept them up. Let me know if you locate this noise, and we can go from there.
Good Luck,Sincerely,

Start switch makes a buzzing sound when pressed; but won't stay engaged and doesn't turn the dryer on.

I just had someone in today to look at my dryer that when I turned "on" switch made a funny noise and the dryer would not turn. Found rear bearing dry and sticking, applied bottle of Hitemp lube, and it works just fine now on test (I think, not run a load yet). He initially thought perhaps the motor, but thank goodness was honest and tried the most reasonable solution.

Psp making funny buzz noise and not reading umd disks.

Try a different UMD, it might be scratched. If not, take a soft cloth, and clean the lens. Look on google to see where the lens are located.
