    could be a relay problem

    when you have to do a reset does it give an error message if so write it down and tell the repair man he should be able to track the fault from that

    al indesit washer have a reset pattern
    switch of with on/off button
    turn selector to a large 'off dot' position
    wait a couple of mins then switch back on
    wait 2 mins
    then switch off again and turn selector to a cycle start position
    wait 2 mins turn back on and let it run the FULL cycle do not mess it about.
    Sometimes it takes 2 or3 attempts so be patient

    If there is a fault it will appear again within the cycle and give you an error code eg E7/E1 etc note this and call a repair man he will track it from this code.

Frigidaire washer makes a very loud humming noise on spin cycle.

Good Morning Larry Looney, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire frontload washer is making a humming noise while in spin cycle. This could be a potential problem with your motor or drum bearing. In order to find the proper cause of the humming noise I would highly recommend having a professional technician come out to your home for diagnosis and repair. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases as well as any future issues. -Matt

If the unit will not spin at all and makes a humming noise, sounds like something has seized up in the back of the unit. This could be a belt broken, motor seized up, or the transmission, if your unit has one, is gone.

My Frigidaire Affinity washer stopped working. When i start the cycle it makes a loud humming noise, but no water goes in, and it starts spinning for a few minutes, then the time goes from 1hr, to 3 m

Possible that the inlet valve is faulty. please measure the voltage on the inlet when the washer is switched on , if there is no voltage then the controller is faulty. If voltage is present then the inlet valve has failed.

On spin cycle makes hum and will not spin. I even emptyed it and it will spin but still makes a loud humming noise.

You have a loose or VERY warn drive belt.
If you can have someone place the washer on its front/face and inspect the drive belt, I am sure that you will see what I am saying.

The solution will be one of 2 things...
1. Find the tension control and repair/replace it
2. Replace the belt.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
