This could be either one of two things, and that is that you have a bad cycle timer, or a bad water pump. Either would give you the humming noise that you are hearing.

    The cycle timer is the easier of the two to replace, all you will need to do is take the model number to an appliance repair shop and pick up a new one, then take the back cover off of the washer, remove and reinstall. If it is your pump then you will need to drain the water out of the machine, and lay it on its side, and then you will have access to the pump. Unless you are skilled at this procedure, I would advise letting a specialist perform the work.

    i so appreciate your answer too. Im unemployed and cant afford a tech. How can you tell if its the timer. i took the bottom off andfound a book underneath. ( iguess for the tech) I did a test. at first it did nothing but hum. but after the test. it goes thru mostly all the cycles except spin. Im tired of draining the water out. I also took out the filter and rinsed it. i might have a problem putting back the metal clip back on. So agigated

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

AMD 121 won't shut off, or change cycles. Continuously "hums".


Did you try just unplugging from the wall outlet, and let sit for 15 seconds and plugging back in. Sort of like a re-boot on the computer? Just a suggestion.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
