When a motor hums, it usually is the result of what is called "locked rotor." This can occur when the motor's brushes remain on one pair of the commutator contacts. The magnetic field does not shift to the next set of windings and the rotor is locked in place by the unchanging magnetic field.
If you have access to the motor, turn on the power briefly and place your hand gently on the side of the motor. Probably you will feel the vibration of the hum you are hearing, together with some heat. In locked-rotor condition, the motor draws high amperage and heats up quickly. Turn off the power.
If this is the condition, the motor is shot and needs to be replaced. You should copy down the information from the name plate (model and serial number, manufacturer, horsepower, amperage, etc.) and contact the manufacturer or a local appliance parts store about a replacement.
As you said that you recently bought the house, you may have a home-owners warranty which may cover the appliance.

Okay lets start with the most obvious: Check all studs to ensure they are plumb. I am assuming all sheetrock and tile has been removed. if so measure the distances from the bottom plates on the end walls. it should be 60 inches in the clear. measure the height of the tub from the edge of the skirt that contact the floor to the top of the skirt then measure this distance off on the front and rear studs on both end walls and mark it off. Now measure to see that you still have 60 inches in the clear at both the front and rear locations. Now measure the tub as well to ensure it wasn't mis-manufactured. If all your measurements come in at 60 inches you should be able to bring the tub in and slide it in as it is when it is finished. If you find out that you have less than 60 inches in the clear for the tub you can use a drill and jigsaw to remove additional wood from the studs to get it to drop in. Once in you can fir the wall back out to the original dimension and sheetrock and tile. One thing you need to remember is that you may need to take wood out of bot ends to get the drain to rough in correctly.
I hope this helps you out and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.
