Customer Question

Maytag model MAH2400AWW serial 11503494GC does not spin but gives an electronic "humm" instead of starting spin. All other functions seem to work ok.

If you hear a hum, that typically comes from the drain pump trying to drain. The washer will not even attempt to spin if it doesn't think the washer is draining properly. I'd check and see where the humming noise is coming from for certain but if it's coming from the drain pump, check for any blockages in the drain catch and replace the drain pump if the drain catch is clear.
