Hi, this is gil1714 in Scotland. Motor not starting properly, and humming. this machine has an induction
motor which has a starter capacitor on the side(the cylinder shaped object). these age out, so try replacing
with one of the same rating (printed on it ??mu). if that doesn't solve the problem, check to see if anything
is partially jamming the drum, or if the machine is overloaded . the other possibility is that the coils in the
motor are starting to fail, which would entail replacing the complete motor. hope this is useful gil.

it's the motor that makes the humming sound..it may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..

Try this, unload the washer and put it into spin manually. If it spins for the whole cycle then it is your motor over heating, with the load.
