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

So is there water inside the tub by chance? I know it won't be high, but is there some water or is it completely empty and all you're hearing is a hum?

exactly correct
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
ok well the humming is the water trying to enter the washer, that's your solenoid opening. Try disconnecting the water hoses from the back fo the washer ot make sure you're getting a good water supply to the washer. If you are definitely getting good water pressure, you need to order and replace your electronic water valve. Below is a link to the valve you'd need to order and replace.
