Washer Does Not Start But Makes a Buzzing Sound

When I start the washer, it just makes a buzzing sound and does nothing else. Is the motor burned out? My wife was doing a load and when it finished the clothes were still soaking wet and then that is when I tried to start the cycle again and the buzzing sound was there.

Sounds like your timer gizmo is bad.

It sounds to me like you have a broken belt.

I have watched my repairman fix my machine a couple of times, and there are no belts in it. However, there is a small part that connects to the motor that breaks, and then the agitator no longer agitates and the machine does not spin. I think you should call a repair man to fix it. If your motor still runs, it is an inexpensive and easily replaced fix.
