    My washer does not drain, nor will it agitate. When I plug it back in, and push the start button, it just hums. Thye water has not drained out from the last load of clothes.

    The motor control was just replaced 2 months ago. Their is a humming noise from the back, with no agitation, spinning or draining. Not understanding how the motor control would affect this.

Hi

When you hear a humming sound from the motor it means that the motor control is bad and should be replaced. If you still want to test the motor control then you can take it apart and test the motor before replacement. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    If the motor is replaced then replace the drain pump which is causing this humming noise

Possible that the pump is not working well as the motor is only running without any action of the pump. So it will be good to remove the drain pump and clear the valve , filters and pump inlets for any possibility of dirt.
Once the pump is fitted back and while the program function drives the pump , measure the voltage on the pump. If Ok but the pump does not **** out, then the drain pump could be faulty.
Please check the drain outlets and make sure there is no block from the tub to the outlet.

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Maytag Bravos MVwX500XW0 Top Load Washer is not spinning


Check the inbalance/lid switch for continuity.Ck speed selector switch (if any)the water level and water temperture switches for proper opreation.NOTE:If any of the selector switches on the console are only poartially pushed in,it may cause improper function.I do not know how old your washer is.TEST LID SWITCH FIRST.If above does not solve,ck timer circuits for continuity.Get ready for this:there is to much to ck with out been there.is motor buzzing,test capacitor,washer spins but does not agitate,ck the agitator splines if they are not rhe problerm,the transmission might be the problem.GOOD LUCK.FYI I own Whirlpool washer and dryer and I repair my own,I prefer KENMORE/WHIRLPOOL/ROPER PRODUCTS because they are easy to repair and parts are not as high priced.

Water gets drained when it passes the washing cycle on the knob ? do you hear the motor humming ? like it wants to start? if no sound from motor then check the sensor switch located under the top of washer where door closes, it could be loose or defective, if you hear sound coming from motor , check the belt ,if belt OK, then MOTOR need to be replace, hope this info helps , AJ
