Sounds like the motor can't turn. Try taking the belt off and start it it the mortor runs the motor is ok. Then try turning pump it may be locked up or something stuck in it. If the motor don't run replace it. If it is huming it is geting juce and trying to start. If the belt is turning anything else try to turn it too. Good Luck

Have a whirlpool washer that now hums when I turn the cycle on, no water just a hum


I had a similar problem - had to get a technician out - there was a valve at the back of the machine that allows the machine to fill. It had split (apparently its a common problem? there are separate valves for hot and cold water, so I'm not sure if using a different cycle choice (ie cold only), may let the machine fill?). 10 minute fix job

Washer fills, then just hums for about two minuts and shuts down


Hello
The hum sound is coming from the motor that is probably bad and needs replacement. Hope you understand...the washer fills with water which indicates that the control and the water inlet valve are both fine however, as after this you hear a hum sound it means that the motor is bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The humming noise is the fill valve...this sounds usually is overpowered by the water fill, but if its faulty it wont let the water in....Replace the fill valve
