Motor hums, but does not start..

Last night I turned the pump off like normal and today when I go to start it it just hums and won't start, after about 20 seconds the circuit breaker cuts off. Do I need a whole new pump?

No, its just the start capacitor (the only part that appears easily removable when you remove the motor's end cover). take that part to almost any electrical motor repair shop and get a new one. I paid $20 for a new one for my pool pump.

Are you a mechanical type person? There is a fast and easy way to test the motor but it is not recommended for anyone who doesn't do this for a living. I have replaced 4 shaded pole motors in the last 3 years that did the same thing and never had a problem with a capacitor start or capacitor start/run motor. If the motor hums, it is trying to run. Try giving the stator help getting started while the motor is humming. Use a small piece of wood or soft plastic. Any non-conductor will do. Look inside the rear of the motor and you will see the field coils around the outside surface and the stator is the round thing in the middle of the motor that rotates. Use the non-conductor to start it turning in the direction it would normally run while the motor is humming. If the motor starts and runs ontill the pressure switch shuts it off, the motor is bad. If it has a capacitor on it, try replacing that first. Please let me know how this works out for you.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I see you have already attacked the filter! Were you able to test the motor in motion as well as checking if it was free? If not here are the last 2 paragraphs of my 'check drain filter and drain pump motor' guidance notes ;-0)
(REMOVE POWER)
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!

Motor is humming loudly.


Motors hum, and your right, it could be no worse than normal.

I would be suspect that there is a gear stripped in the gearcase, since this is a direct drive washing machine.

Reassemble the motor back onto the washer. Run it through a cycle manually (rotate the timer by hand) until the motor turns, then look to see if it's turning. If it is, or even more so, if it pumps water out of the tub, then it is probably the stripped out gearcase.

Reply with you findings and more advice.

Hi, you should start by checking all your fuses,if they are all good ,check fuel pump relay, if this is ok , check fuel filter, if filteris good ,you should run a fuel presure text, this will determine if your fuel pump is ok, good luck.......
