Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
Your machine has multiple issues. First, the obvious: are the water lines turned on? When you try to fill it with water, can you hear the water valve humming? Try different temperatures, too. If it lets one temp in, but not the other, you need a water valve. If it doesn't hum at all, you could have a problem with the pressure switch or the timer.
The motor humming is the issue that worries me. Try removing the belt from the motor pulley. If the motor turns now, it's a transmission problem. If it won't agitate (you'll have to satisfy the pressure switch first) or spin at all, your transmission could be locked up. I've had limited success by pulling on the belt (hard) in both directions. This has only worked once to unjam the transmission.
