Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

 

If you water is on in you hear a buzz but the water is entering the machine then you water valve is bad, the buzzing you hear is the valve trying to open, you will need to replace the valve, the valve is located in the left bottom front behind the access panel under the door, you can order the valve for $34.95 at the following blue link, just click on the link it will take you to the part to order, http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Water-Inlet-Valve/1105846?modelNumber=SHU9916%20UC%2F12%20(FD%208003-) this is a common problem on these machines and especially being 11 years old it will need to be changed, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
