Working fine and then half way through a cycle it started buzzing and wouldn't finish the cycle. Then it wouldn't restart until I unplugged/plugged it back in. It will sometimes run now doing that but there is often a buzzing noise coming from the back near where the hoses connect in the upper corner. There is no error code.

Thanks!

it could be the Cold Water Valve not working / clogged ..
What water temperature Wash Cycle do you use ? warm ?
Maybe only Hot is entering..
Try starting a cold Wash cycle.

still sounds like there's something wrong with the Cold Water Valve
take a look at the input screens

Yeah that seems to be what was buzzing when I tore it apart earlier. You think I should just swap that out?
