Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you hear the unit humming, it sounds like your drain pump is likely jammed or something is clogged. Below is a video that shows you how to remove the drain pump so that you can check inside it for a clog. You can also verify that this is the part humming. If you find nothing and it still just hums, replace the pump.

I'm just following up to see how your appliance is doing since I haven't heard back from you and this question is still open. Is there anything else that I can help you with today?
