It is a GE Heavy Duty 18; 2 Speed Washer with Mini-Wash;

Model WWA 8360 N A L HT

We've had the machine since 1986 and it's been a good machine. A week ago I tried to do a load, it filled up, the dial went on it's merry way around the normal cycle and I caught it on the first spin without having done anything. All I got was a "hum" when I pulled the Cycle dial. Today while tearing it apart piece by piece, I located the "hum" coming from behind left side where the hot and cold water hoses go into the machine, there are four electrical connections (slip connector type), I numbered them, I turned the power on and that specific part started "humming". Any Clue???

Does it do it only on one water temperature setting?  Seems to me like the water valve body has gotten clogged or has gone bad.

That is your fill valve, water valve.  Either there is no water to the washer or the valve has gone bad.

yup, check and make sure no one turned off the HOT or COLD water be accident.
Then you turn off the water supply and take the hoses off the valve and remember which one goes back where. Hold them over the sink and turn the water on and make sure that you are getting plenty of water through the hoses. Then look at the ends of the hoses for any type of screens to catch debres. Look inside the water valve where you just took the hoses off of. There are screens there too. Make sure those screens are not dirty and clogged up. If all that obvious stuff looks okay then chances are the water mixing valve (aka water inlt vale) is bad.
Unless specifically asked otherwise, remember to test with the unit unplugged, or breaker off.
