Re: washer willl not fill just humming
If you disconnect the water lines from teh back of the washer is there water? If so then the problem sounds like it's your water valves. They are very easy and inexpensive to fix. Will cost you about $50 and take an hour or so.
To access the water valve, you will have to remove the cabinet.
To do this:
1) Insert a putty knife between the consol and the cabinet on the left hand side (coming from the front), apply pressure to the putty knife to release the clip. Do the same on the right hand side
2) Now the consol will be free, flip it over, and now you have full access to the clips that hold the cabinet to the back.
3) Insert a flat head into the slot and push the screw driver towards the back, this will release the large gold coloured clip. Do the same on the other side. **NOTE WHICH SIDE SLIDES INTO THE BACK PANEL.** Once you set them aside, it is possible to forget which side went where (speaking from experience)
4) There is also a wiring harness that clips to the cabinet (this is the lid switch), undo this conector.
5) Now open the lid and grab the cabinet from inside the lid. Tilt the cabinet forward, and walk backwards wit it.
6) Now the water valve will be exposed. It should just be a single screw that holds the water valve on. If memory serves me right, use a 1/4 inch nut driver.
***Just a side note, when you put everything back together, when putting the cabinet back on, it's easiest to tilt the cabinet at a 45 degree angle and keep the lid open, so you can see the front lip of the cabinet going under the frame of the washer.***
If you don't have water coming out of the water lines, then the problem is further up the line in the plumbing.

If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
The inlet valve on the cold water inlet is clogged, dirty or jammed. You need to remove the inlet valve and clean the valve and filter. use back flushing with brushing to clean the filter.
the hum you hear is of the coil working but is not opening to allow water into the system.
Also you can switch the inlet valve from the hot line if needed .
check this link for removing the inlet valve:
Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.
The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Hi, First thing you want to do is start the cold sysle and listen for a faint hum. If there is a hum,turn supply valve off and remove fill hose. Look inside the valve on the washer and see if something is plugging the screen. If the screen is plugged flush it out (do not remove the screen. If the screen is not plugged, and there was no hum when washer was trying to fill with cold water, you will need to change the inlet mixer valve. Please let me know if this has helped or if I can assisst you further.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
turn it on and just makes a hummins noise??? not filling with water??? at very least the machine if powered correcly will fill with water, the humming if happening is hte washer trying to fill check your incoming water supply. try alo changing water temp select from cold/warm/hot.
If you hear a humming, the coil on the water valve is probably OK. On warm, you are getting cold fill only. (hot + cold = warm) Take the hot water supply hose off the machine and look inside where the hose attached to the washer. There should be a screen inside. Remove it and clean it out. Also, check both ends of the supply hose, as sometimes you will find a screened washer in there too.
Does it fill with "cold" water?Will it spin?Drain?If the machine will fill up with cold water,will the timer advance by itself to finish?Or if you place the timer in spin cycle will it spin?First off if your not getting "Cold" water to fill inside :Replace the water valve (because when the timer stops after the agitation cycle it wont advance because it cant fill up with cold water.
