Hello David Kruk - Often when a unit does not spin and is making a humming noise, it is because the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Hi I have a fisher and pykel fresh smart drive 9 and its filled up with water but wont drain,ive tried advancing the cycle but all I get is a humming noise.please help

The humming noise is due to the drain pump being jammed due to clogging of dirt. All you need is to remove the drain pump and do a full clean up. You can also try to tap on the drain pump while it is humming as it will release the dirt and wash off.

Drain pump[ hums

.It is possible that lack of voltage to the pump or fault in the pump can cause the hum. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Water will not drain. humming noise


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Humming noise is due to loose connections on drain pump or due to faulty drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water pump hums and then doesn't pump out water, the machine keeps saying OE, but there is nothing stuck in the filter. Is the water pump bad or maybe a relay?

get a shop vac and try to **** water out through the drain hose, if water comes out at least you know your drain hose is not restricted, if you can get all the water out you may have something inside your pump not letting the impeller turn, especially if you can hear the pump humming, Drain water out and open unit up to check pump for restriction

Won't drain

In my case the drain hose was pinched. My machine got pushed up against the hose and I had the same problem with it humming and not draining. I came in here and read some of the replys and watched to see if water was coming out of the drain hose and it was but only a bit. I pulled the machine out to get a better look and sure enough it started working fine.

If you can hear the drain motor humming, look for a clog in the air gap. That's the silver dome on the back of the sink. If there's nothing there, you'll have to find the clog inside the bottom of the dishwasher.
Remove the bottom rack. Rotate the short tube that the lower spray arm is connected to about 1/4 turn clockwise and remove the lower spray arm. Remove the screens over the pump assembly. The hole to the drain pump is on the bottom right. If the motor hums, but doesn't pump, and there's no clog, the pump must be replaced.

If the motor doesn't hum in the drain mode, check for power at the pump with a voltmeter. the pump is behind the toe panel on the left. Reaching the terminals to take a reading may be difficult. you can disconnect the terminals from the pump to take the reading only if you use rubberized alligator clips to connect to the wires. If the motor has power but doesn't hum, replace the motor. If there's no power to the motor, replace the electronic control / timer.
