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 it does not drain and hums, then it is usually a clogged or broken drain pump.
On Maytag front load the drain pump is accessed removing a door located at the front of the machine. Then the hose can be disconnected from bump to remove blockage or replace pump if broken.
Power must be disconnected before accessing the drain pump.
Be prepared to collect the water flowing out from the hose if you DIY.
Regards.

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Kenmore coldspot 106 icemaker working fine but in the last week has started to make a loud buzz/humming sound when filling... is it the Solenoid, water fill valve or the ice maker motor ?


If you think it's only during the fill (20-30 seconds at the end of the cycle), it's probably the fill solenoid. If it were me, I'd let it go a couple of weeks and see if it quiets down on its own. There's nothing harmful about a solenoid humming, and you may find that better is the enemy of good when you wade into trying to fix it.
If you can't live with the noise, I'd suggest replacing the entire valve body and solenoid as a unit - you never know which part may be the source of the problem. It's only 2 water connections and 2 wires. You can buy the part online for $20 or less.

Whirlpool Dryer made loud humming noise and quit


Something caused the motor to lock up. The humming noise was the start winding in the motor trying to start rotation, but could not because of lockup. The humming noise stopped when the start winding burned out ( will only last 6 or 7 seconds). It will require a new motor, plus repair to whatever caused it to lock up in the first place.

When tub drains beeps twice and won't continue


Hi - Does the drain pump make a humming noise as well? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if what pump out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to diagnose either the pump or timer.

Frigidaire washer won't drain or spin


Hello - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Supposing that it does not, I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The unit could possibly have a faulty pump, timer, or door lid (if it is a laundry center).

GU1500XTL loud humming sound during the cycle, getting louder


The run capacitor on the main wash motor needs replacing. Eventually it will just hum and overheat instead of rotating, so better replace it now before it overheats.

I doubt you can acces it easily yourself, as it may be away from the motor, and have to be tracked down.
