Hey vunger, what was the solution to the humming motor. Did you figure it out? I have one with the same symptoms. I've ruled out lid latch and shift actuator.

When the VMW was introduced at WPL factory training the instructor apologetically mentioned the word splutch and a collective groan was heard throughout the room. Everyone reliving the nightmares of the world washer. Seeing multiple issues with shifters, motors and controls. The splutch, in all it's plastic glory seems to be holding up remarkably well.

Error codes F7-E1 and F5-E1. In diagnostics testing agitate and spin you hear the motor hum in a pulsing fashion. I had a new shift actuator with me, switched them with the same results. I reseated all wire connections. The splutch is in perfect condition and the tub and pulley turn freely. I didn't have time to get down and dirty with wire continuity but didn't see any visual damage. The motor ohmed at 4.5-4.5 and 8. Is the 8 out of tolerance? The capacitor tested good. Got a hell of a spark when I discharged it. The customer is pissed because the washer is 1 year 4 months old and Sears/Whirlpool are not sympathetic.

... motor ohmed at 4.5-4.5 and 8. Is the 8 out of tolerance?
each of the (2) Motor Windings should read between 3.5 OHMs to 6 OHMs
If measured in series, would be double...

Just to finish this out, My diagnosis was either motor or control board. I explained to my customer the mountain of problems these machines have had. They called sears again and finally got some results. Sears replaced the machine without looking at the old one. Customer mentioned the mountain of problems these machines have had and sears rep said "we have very few complaints about these washers"
