Thanks, Bob

It seams to me that your pump and/or water outlet is clogged. Humming noise comes from the water pump as it tries to pump out water. You should unplug the machine, unclog the outlet pipe if it is clogged. While you're at it check if the filter in front of the pump isn't clogged too.

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

GE Washer stuck in wash cycle and not draining.


humming is usually the result of bad motor windings , are u saying it washes for 20 minutes or just stays on that cycle without doing any washing? a non moving drum can be a bad motor coupler or belt if belt driven.

Ge washer wont agitate and makes a humming noise when in agitate cycle


That means the motor has shorted out if it is not spinning. The brushes inside the motor may have overheated and stuck. You can try tapping on motor inside wash machine to see if it will free up.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Humming and not filling?


had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck
