The noise is most likely your drain pump trying to clear water from the sump area. If you remove the bottom screws holding the lower access panel in place, look for the drain pump and a block rubber hose connected to it. I suspect there is something preventing the pump from draining all the water. Remove the clamp holding the hose to the pump (have towels handy as there will be water) and clean out the sump, then put it back together and give the washer another try.

My whirlpool cabriolet will not start a load or add any water at all. It just makes a humming noise


Are your water lines turned on? If so The humming noise you hear is the solenoid that allows water to enter unit. If that solenoid is stuck no water will enter but you will hear the humming noise.

I removed the bottom panel under the door and drained the the tub. There is a white filter housing that unscrews, but you need to have towels handy to catch the water that comes out. The machine appeared to work after that but it would'nt drain and it turns out that the humming noise was coming from the drain pump connected to the filter. I ordered a new drain pump assembly, which should be easy to replace since it is located at the front of the washing machine.

Maytag MAH 24 does not drain and makes weird humming noise


i also have this problem. to get the door to unlock, just unplug the washer and it should open in a min or two. you will hear a click. you may have a mini flood but at least you can get your cloths out and bail out the water. my problem started when i began using a new detergent from Tide called total care. Still tying to get the pump to work.
