you have a problem with a component called a capacitor.the capacitor stores an electric charge.this charge gives the motor the "kick" needs to start.if you have a faulty one the motor will hum because it cant turn.it should only be replaced by a competent appliance technician.

Top 10 front-load washer problems
1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisy,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunnion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completely closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nesessary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.Note some models send a signal to the motor and another to the control letting both know the door is secure before proceeding, corrosion gets into the lid lock and the door can be locked and the control is ready but the motor ain't getting the message.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Over-sudsing: Wrong Detergent, too much detergent, detergent in wrong dispensing drawer, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. On some models a suds detect is determined by the motor over amping, most machines will try a few mini loads to correct the problem. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.

SOURCE: When I press the start
There's no reset button and the
problem is likely a blown thermal fuse. This thermal fuse is wired in
series with the motor and if it's blown open, power to the motor is terminated
and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot
Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located behind the bottom front panel. Remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the panel then pull the panel down and off the cabinet.
Make sure the lint filter is clean the vent system is not restricted then check the continuity of the thermal fuse. Replace it including the cycling thermostat if the thermal fuse is indeed open. Click on the links below for more detailed troubleshooting.
