    I have the same problem. The water remained in the drum and did not spin. Today a repairman is coming out to check on the problem.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Washer wont run but is trying to


check the motor for that, there may be smoething stuck ther. for the humming sound, when did this started happening? for the smell, check for frounded wire. for repeating each cycle, try to check for the housing if its still operational because the burnt smell and the cycle repeating is linked.

GE Washer stuck in wash cycle and not draining.


humming is usually the result of bad motor windings , are u saying it washes for 20 minutes or just stays on that cycle without doing any washing? a non moving drum can be a bad motor coupler or belt if belt driven.

Washer wont pump water unless in spin cycle


it is not supposed to pump water unless it is in the spin cycle. On most topload washers the motor turns one way for the agitate cycle and then the motor reverses during the spin/rinse cycle which in turn reverses the pump and causes it to pump the water out.

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.


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 ..

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Motor Hums on Top Load Maytag Washer


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.

Sounds like the motor or capacitor (next to the motor), the capacitor helps the motor to start, once running a switch inside the motor disconnects the capacitor from circuit.
