Mid-cycle, the washer stops washing and starts humming with a medium load. Not a fun-loving hum, we're talking "could be my last load" hum. All timer settings, hum but no wash. But, changing load size to large, it did pump more water. So, after unloading, decided it must be bad timer so replaced it, also for kicks verified motor coupling and pressure switch are fine. Back together, TOTAL hum, won't even fill now. What's up with THAT?

Nope, sometimes I'm asleep, not this one. Also, no gunk in either intake filter.

What's humming the water valve or the motor?

If you are sure that the water supply is good right up to the valve, then you need to replace the valve. Come git you one==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Water-Inlet-Valve/727989?modelNumber=110.20982992

Thanks....but isn't it a tad unusual for both hot and cold to fail together?

Learn something every day. While re-connecting the washer, I broke out the stainless hoses with Floodsafe valve, and apparently I've got too much pressure 'cause they were blocking flow!! I just put back the rubber ones, got the tub filled with both h/c, but my original problem still exists, hum on every other cycle. It's coming from lower part, so would you say it's got to be the motor?

flood safe hoses can cause problems with the newer Washers ...

could be the Motor or the Timer or something stuck in the Pump or between the Tub and Basket ..


Does it Agitate (when it's full of water)

Does the Soin Cycle work ?

Just replaced timer, thinking that was it...remember I'm a grasshopper. It doesn't agitate of spin, nothing but fill. I had inspected the motor coupling, all looked good. I'm thinking of testing the motor for resistance.

Yes, hums in all settings but fill. I didn't try other speeds -- should have -- but now it's apart and motor tests for resistance as follows:

white/black to white: zero
yellow to black: zero (supposed to be 4-10??)
white to blue: between zero and 4
white/black to blue: zero (s/b 1-5??)
violet to white: zero (s/b 1-7?)
violet to blue: zero (s/b same as above?)
violet to white/black : zero (also bad?)

I didn't do the rest yet -- think motor is bad??

Ok, hums at all three speeds, slightly different pitched hum at "extra slow". Wouldn't having a hum mean I've got voltage there?

yes, but there's the Run Winding and there's the Start Winding..

may be missing one of those voltages..

may also be just a bad Capacitor.

check the voltage between

Yellow Wire and the GY-P wire

I have yellow on the 8 wire harness, and white/purple on a two wire harness (along with a white/orange). I tested the yellow and white/purple, no reading. It was humming, seemed to be from water valve.

My capacitor has drips of water in the bottom. When tested, it shows infinity on one test and 50 when probes are reversed. Would this mean it's bad??
