Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.

Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Does it just not fill with hot water?

It seems to start filling and after about a second or two it just stop and then there is a low humming sound - it it is trying to do something.

That is the hot water valve in the unit, it is bad and needs to be changed. You can remove the hot water hose to it and check the inlet screen to the valve to see if it is blocked up. If it is you can clean it but replace the hot water valve inside the unit to fix this issue permanently. You can order a hot water valve from SEARSPARTSDIRECT.COM with the complete model number.
