Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
As you mention not hearing a humming noise usually means there is no power to the motor assembly. A very common cause of this is a defective lid switch.
Open the machines lid or door press the striker pad and listen for a clicking sound. Or open and close the lid/door gently listening for the same sound, the switch to engage.
You'll probably find thats your problem.
