i have an old kenmore washer that suddenly did the following after a move to another location. it runs through wash cycle fine, tub drains, knob advances to rinse and then it stops without any rinse activity. at that point i noticed there is a fairly loud buzzing sound that's hard to locate even with the panels off but it might be coming from the water inlet area. i can manually advance the timer knob and get it to a final rinse which then advances to final spin to complete the cycle.

the tech sheet is missing so i don't know where to start with testing.

i've read all other posts i could find on the internet but there's not one that i think answers this question. just don't want to order multiple expensive parts for this old washer. any thoughts?

thanks...

Check your hoses.hot and cold.
Hose screen stopped up?
Are they on correct faucets?
Is cold water turned on?

Sounds like it is trying to put in rinse water but can't. If you have it set to put in cold water for rinse, try it on warm and see if you get any water then, if so you have a bad valve or the screen is plugged or there is no cold water coming from the house valve.

thanks for the amazingly fast replies.

i have both cold and hot water flowing. screens look fine. hooked up correctly. tub filled fine on initial wash and forced rinse when timer knob was advanced. final spin was normal.

however, just went down to try another wash and when i put the knob on short wash and pulled it there was no response except for that buzzing sound.

so now it has hung on different cycles - on startup as well as the rinse cycle.

thanks again....

i think the problem has been solved. i should have paid more attention to what changed. washer was moved to a mountain cabin with a shared well. it's uphill and always has had low water pressure. i noticed that the pressure was extra low at times over the past few days so maybe the washer just wasn't getting enough pressure. anyway, when tested during a time when pressure on an open faucet was ok the washer ran through the process without any issues.

thanks again for all of the responses. i'm impressed by this board...
