Whirlpool dryer runs, hums, then quits

Sounds like the motor is on it's last legs. Replace it. But, before paying huge money for a motor and the labor to install it, I suggest that you price a new dryer and compare it to the repair costs. It may still be a little more for a new dryer, but....IT'S NEW!

My washing machine hums and does not start it's cycle.

Possible that the INLET VALVE is humming and the valve is blocked or jammed . You can remove the outlet from the inlet valve and check if there is water flow If not tap on the valve with a soft hammer. It might release the valve and allow the flow, check also the water at the inlet and if the filter at the inlet is clogged.

Motor just hums and will not spin

Possible that the starting capacitor to the motor is weak or damaged and does not have the value to initiate the start . You can couple a capacitor in series to confirm before replacing the component.
If the motor still hums then it is due to winding failure and the motor must be replaced ONLY if this is worth the cost.

After the tub fills with water, I hear a humming sound for several minutes then I hear a "click" and the humming sounds stops. I notice the motor is really hot. Is it a bad motor, or could it...

I suggest that you first check to see if the drum and pulley are turning freely, that there is nothing seized. Also, sometimes having a deteriorated drive belt (the one that goes to the drum pulley) can cause the drum to put too much strain on the motor and make it overheat. So it may not be time for a motor just yet, but if everything is spinning freely then you may just have to get another motor.

Washing machine stopped spinning & tumbling at any cycle. Have limited knowledge on multimeter use, but door lock/switch appears to be in working order. Belt around motor in excellent condition. ...

Check the condition of brushes. Replace if necessary. Check motor rotation. Not rotating, check if it has a soft starter for motor. If there is soft starter, bypass it. Check the motor rotation. If it does not rotate, then it is quite likely that the motor is burnt.

My Maytag washing machine will fill with water but will not agitate as soon as the water level gets up the water shuts off and when it shut start all that happens is that it makes a humming noise

First check to see if the belts are all on under the machine, and see if the motor is turning. Chances are you have a broken belt, or the belt may be stretched and worn.If the belt is on and the motor is not turning, you may have a burnt out motor.If the belt is on and the motor is turning but the agitator isn't, you probably have a seized gearbox.But check the belts first.
