Sounds like the pump motor is locked-up and that could be a lot of problems. What model of pump do you have? More needed.

Electric Pressure washer hums but does not work.

guess is that someone started it without water...and seized the piston. You can try spraying silicon spray into the water intake (lots of it) and then see if that frees the piston. You can start it for a moment without water after spraying silicon into the intake. The alternate ( not recommented) is to open the pump housing and spraying directly into the piston to free it up.... Good luck.

Model 8003- x - 400 when plugged in motor hums for about 10 seconds then breaker trips(no pump but display lights up

Sounds like the motor is seized. Of it cant turn over it will trip the breaker. Sometimes you can get to the shaft of the motor on the back end by removing a cover or cap. With a large flat screw driver or open end wrench you can sometimes spin it manually to break it free. If it is really stuck the pump may have to be dis-assembled or replaced.

Pool pump does not turn on it just hums

If it hums and the impellor shaft is not turning, it's jammed and will trip the breaker after it over heats.
If the impellor shaft is turning, may have a broken impellor. After closing the inlet and oulet valves, I would take the pump cover off and check... Good luck...

Sump pump hums and then kicks breaker. Will not pump. I cleaned everything, still have problem

Pump motor is jammed causing overload and resulting breaker trip. Try to turn the pump shaft by hand, it should be very easy to turn. If there's any resistance check for blockage.

Washer starts to spin up then trips breaker

Good day,
Not the transmission. The motor could be stalled by a defective transmission, but the motor would trip off on it's own internal long before the home breaker.
Sounds like a short in the motor itself. But ......
There is Murphy's law.
Your home breaker might have become so weak, it IS the problem.
You really need an amp probe to check the washers draw, at the circuit breaker panel.

If you cannot do that and are comfortable dealing with electrical, you can swap equal value breakers, to be sure.

Turning on my pump causes loud hum noise then breaker trips

Your pump is seized or the start capacitor is bad. In rare instances, its wired improperly set to 240v and only given 120v.
To break a siezed pump free, turn off power at the breaker, remove the back cap. You will see in the center a shaft. Either its round with a small pin like punch, its able to be grabbed with a 7/16ths inch wrench or a large flat head screw driver. You need to break it free so it can spin (chlorine is an oxidizer and rusts things). If it spins freely right from the start, you need a new start capacitor, or need to check your line voltage.

Pump just hums but wont start

Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?
