The buzzing is the water valve, the timer is sending power to the valve but no water is coming out. I would set to wash and as it is filling up change the water to cold then to hot while it's filling. I bet either cold or hot will buzz (usually hot). Once you determine which (clod or hot) shut that supply off, take that water line off the washer, put the end in the washer and turn the supply back on. If water comes out then look inside the valve where the hose connects, it could be clogged. If you have water going to the valve and you don't see a clog then the problem is inside the valve...replace valve.
Turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the water hose from the machine and the faucet. Clean out the filter screen in the washer water valve. Look in the hose for a secondary screen and clean it also if one if there. Not all hoses have screens. All water valves do have screens.
Then you most likely have a bad hot water valve. On Maytags the valve is one combo unit for both hot and cold. Maytag didn't change that much for a number of years, so you may be able to salvage one out of an old machine somewhere and fit it in -- that's what I did when my wife's Maytag did this.
The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine. No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.
Is there water getting to the machine? Check to be sure that someone did not turn off the water, usually the faucet or faucets are on the wall behind the machine.
Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?
If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?
Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
Check to see if there is a filter located in the valve, remove and clean.
If still no hot water then disconnect hose and make sure you have actually got water at valve, if you have and it still does not come in, and you can hear a buzzing noise, then I would say that it is sticking and you have a faulty inlet valve, only solution is to replace said valve.
