Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 11 months ago.

Any flashing lights or fault codes?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no flashing lights. It hums to start with like it should and then stops after a couple minutes. Have to restart a bunch of times and then it finally works
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 11 months ago.

Okay the humming is either the drain pump is jammed, faulty or possible water in the base.

Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 11 months ago.

Pull the unit out in the floor and tilt it back 45 degrees to let any water in the base drain out. Replace the unit and try again.

it finally ran last night after repeatedly starting it after it stopped.

THe drain pump most likely is going bad and will need to be replaced. Could also be a faulty water inlet valve.
