Could be a stuck gear box. motor trying to turn it on the reverse rotation for spinning. it could be the motor that hums. or the belt could just be loose.

inspect the belt and see if it is loose and adjust it if necessary.

tnx 4 using fixya,

I have a Hoover top load 610 and it wont start wash cycle

These are a great little machine,I dont know why they have to go changing things.Anyway this sounds to me like the timer.It fills & the water cuts off so the inlet valve is ok.It drains so the pump is ok.It spins so the motor should be ok.Try it on other cycles like gentle or delicate & see if it agitates.I'm sure it will be the Timer.

Washer gets no power

are you sure the outlet has power? make certain by plugging in a lamp or something else to the outlet first. the timer does have to get power to turn on the unit, but its not likely it is the problem.
try a different cycle and see if it wont run on any position. like fill, wash or spin. then if your outlet is ok, it could be the timer.
i dont think it is but it could happen. usually if the timer fails, it will work on some cycles but not all of them. if it wont work on any cycle then i would expect the outlet first.

Timer stops at the end of wash cycle, won't began drain cycle

if it fills and agitates but stops at the drain/spin portion, it sounds like you have a problem with the lid switch. if it thinks the lid is opne, it will not drain or spin.

No spin

you say the machine is tryng to drain. does in drain? if it doesn't the pressure (fill) switch is preventing it from spinning because there is too much water (weight) in the tub
