Question about Washing Machines
If that didn't work there is another possible solution... I had the
same problem... and since I am cheap I like to make sure I try
everything I can before buying parts... so heres what you do...
-Remove the front panel off the washing machine.
-Look on the side of the tub for where the pressure hose attaches to the base of it.
-Check for a build up of gunk in the hose near where the tube meets the tub... you'll probably notice wht looks like mildew... usually you can just pull it apart.
-I used pipe cleaners to clean out the end of the tube (you can usually unattach from both ends to make it wasier to work on)
-Now before you put it back together grab a can of compressed air and use it to blow down into where the hose connects (as there is usually a build up there too).
-Reassemble... TADA... if that fixed it you just saved yourself some $$$.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
The humming noise can be fault in the motor or a fault in the capacitor to the motor.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
