2. Unplug the washer from the wall and wait for 30 seconds.

3. Plug the washer back into the wall.

4. Lift the lid 5 times to at least 6 inches high. Open/Close within 15 secs.

5. Pause… You should here a click. If you do not, then repeat 1 – 5 again.

6. Insert a towel or garment into the washer and then pull knob to start the wash cycle.

7. Check the wash cycle to make sure the washer is agiating and spinning during its cycle.

Kenmore series 80 newer won't fill spin or agitate just hums on cycles and makes no noise on spin cycle


Are you sure the water is on and water is getting to the machine.
If there is no water the water valve will open & hum & nothing else will work till the tub is full.Check the little screens on the water valve behind the hot & cold hoses where they hook up the the machine they get clogged
up sometimes just pull them out and clean them. Hope this helps you

Hi I have a Kenmore 110 80 series washer that wont enter the spin cycle where it pumps out the water. Can you help me?


I used a screwdriver to press in the contact switch on the lid like another guy did on your message board. It seemed the switch wasnt being pressed in far enough.
All set solved the problem.

Look inside the pump. Smething might be in it. If you incorrectly installed the couplings too tight against the tranny or motor then the resulting bind will cause the problem.

Frigidaire FWX233RES4 washing machine won't work


Sounds like there's something such as a small sock that has gotten sucked into the pump. This will keep the pump from spinning, cause extra noise, and the belts may appear fine but it may be stretched... if you're willing to deal with a little disassembly, unhooking hoses, spilling some water, you can probably handle this.... Good luck and let me know if you need any more assistance..
