Why is the head board making a static noise?

The headboard of my top loading washer is making a static/buzzing noise when it goes to the spin cycle. It won't spin or anything. I've tried the bypass because I figured it was a lid switch problem but it just kept making that noise. I'd rather not pay hundreds of dollars on a repair person to come out and fix it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Please check that model number as it's showing up as a KitchenAid Refrigerator Model KSRG22FTSS01 for some reason.


@mayer Whirlpool LSQ9264HQ0 checks out as a washer. Sounds like your cache is stuck on another question:-)


carelesshoneybadger have you checked the control board? Could be stuck relay as well as other components. Post a couple of images so we can see what you see.


I'm really new to this. Lol. It makes the clicking noise still but does the spin cycle etc. I bypassed the lid switch till the part comes in. But now my dryer isn't working. It's the matching one to the washer. It spins but I think it over heats and won't go again. It won't even make a buzzing noise when I try to turn it on. It's one thing after another. Lol. I'm not sure what to do with it. It makes this really loud noise as it spins and when I have the clothes out it's really hard to move the inside. I don't know too much about washer and dryers just what I read about online.


carelesshoneybadger okay :-) so do you have a dryer model number? SO right now your dryer is not turning and not doing anything?

When a washer makes a buzzing sound, the most common fault is that there is something stuck in the pump and blocking it. The buzzing sound occurs as the drain pump tries to run but something is blocking it and the “buzzing” noise occurs. As a blocked pump is the most probable cause for a buzzing washer, there can also be a other problems that can cause this noise.

Please take a look at this video and let me know if you can relate to it or parts of it. Your machine may have a disease but it may be in stage one and you have detected it early.
