Start by removing the hose from the pump and cleaning the crap from the trap

I had a full drum to clean out which was in there for 10 days, nasty as hell!!!! But, Mr. genious, I think it might have fixed it. I'm going to start it now and see how it goes. I'll be in touch shortly.

The washer filled with water and went into the wash cycle then the hum started again when I suspect it went into the drain cycle. I almost sure the hum is coming from the drain pump. I stuck my finger up in it and didn't find anything, should I remove it and see if it's jammed with some crap?

I turned the washer off, unplugged it and then turned it back on setting it to Drain/Spin, as soon as I turned it on it just hummed so could that be a pump motor jam or bad pump motor??

So your saying the pump is bad? Don't mean to sound like a dumbass here. If yes, I'll damn sure buy my parts from here now and in the future and do everything I can to put the word out on appliance zone!!!

Yes, if nothing is jamming the pump impeller, then the pump is shot

Make sure you check inside this as it is often full of goodies:

Sir, You were absolutely correct, my problem was, get this, a underbra wire that manage to stick itself into the pump impeller stopping it from moving. Thank you very much and my wife thanks you!!!!! Wish I had talked to you prior to buying the motor controller which by the way, is now for sale since I can't return it. Now to move onto another honey do. I just don't understand way the code would tell me it's the reed switch. For everyone else out there, if your washer won't start running and/or hums and doesn;'t pump the water out, check the pump for blockage.

the motor controller which by the way, is now for sale


I would probably hang on to that Controller for future use - pack it all up nice and store it inside the washer (like the tech sheet)
