Hi

What you will find here is the wash motor is the problem. As the humming noise you hear is the motor trying to run and it cannot so it sits there humming and not washing.

What you need to do is pull the dishwasher out and lay it on its back and remove the metal base. From there you will see the wash motor. Check this and see if theres any signs of water leaking from it. As what can happen is the motors leak and causes the bearing in there to jam and stops the motor from running.

But if theres no leak from there then bolted to the motor is a capacitor. This gives the motor a boost to get going. You can try and replace just this and see if it starts the motor going.

But if not then im afraid you are looking at a faulty wash motor which will need to replaced. Now a wash motor is quite expensive so sometimes this may not be worth fixing. But thats up to yourself.

But from what you say the fault lays with the wash motor here im afraid.
