Hi, It sounds like onr of 3 things might be locked up. It could be the motor, pump, or transmission. If you try the drain/spin cycle, does it stil hum or will it work?
Most cases is the pump has a sock or something in it. I would need to know make/model # to give you more instruction. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

Sound like something else isn't turning because it's jammed
the the motor is trying to turn.
May also be the starting capacitor.

My washing machine will fill up with water but it will not agitate or spin to drain the water all it does is make a humming sound like its trying to and if I let it hum for a while I start to smell...


This is most likely going to be something hung in the water pump. On this pump I end up changing the pump because it is hard to get it unclogged without damaging the pump. This page should help. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/Whirlpool-washer.html
