Question about Washing Machines
Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
There are a few things that may cause this i will list them here below for you ok?
Many washers Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all.
If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley. Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems: they have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.this is fairly common here The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem. If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. if you feeel like you could do these repairs on this please send me a post so i can send you the correct repair procedures for this machine i need the make and model of this machine ok ?
Hope this is very helpful best regards Mike

If it hums real loud during water fill then its the water fill solenoid valve shorted,if it hums after it starts again,then it could be a broken brake shoe or control for the brake on the top of the transmission or a bad transmission bearing in a neutral drain transmission
