Your washer is just in flood mode because it tried to fill for more than 5 minutes and never reached the proper water level. It will do nothing but drain for about 30 minutes which is why you hear it humming right now. Just plug the washer back in and wait 30 minutes and then it'll finish the flood sequence and unlock the door so you can use the washer normally again.
