Maytag washer mav4757aww was agitating a little then would stop and make a slight humming sound. Now it won't agitate at all , it just hums and starts to smell like something is getting hot. It will spin and drain just fine though.

Unplug the unit and remove the front panel and look at the space between the motor and transmission find the coupler that connects the two together this could be broken. You may have to lay the unit on it's back to check this out. It's a cheap fix if its the coupler. Let me know.

Why won't maytag MVWC6ESW go into rinse cycle?


The cold water valve screen in the washer water valve is clogged. You have grit in your water and it will continue to happen until you get a filter system installed on to it.

My roper top load washer model rtw4440vq fills with water but wont wash, spin or drain


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSB200KQ1 Top Load Washer - the washer filled and then stopped. No humming, no sound, no action when we turn the knob. Thoughts?


The limit switch that detects that the lid is closed is probably defective. You've already probably experienced how the agitator would stop if the lid was opened when the machine was working properly--same thing.

Kenmore washer won't spin or agitate. Sounds like it wants to but can't.


Does the washer fill with water then stop and hum? The problem may be in the timer or processor or it could be the switch that confirms the lid or door is closed.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Agitator moving just a little.


If it is a Whirlpool or Kenmore make washer you probably stripped the "dog ears" in the agitator. They give you the duel agitation that makes your clothes cycle from top to bottom of the machine. Should only rin you around $8.00 or so. Hope that helps.
