I can't find any service information or a tech sheet for that model. Can you tell where the humm is coming from? Was it working fine until you cleaned the pump?

It is an Amana front load washer, purchased in Canada. Model #NFW5800DW0. I put that model # in google search and it brings up info. The model # is correct. The hummmmmmmmm noise comes from the pump area at the back. When i unplug it for 10 mins then plug it back in, it just hummmms as though as its trying to drain.

Some Canadian models we don't have any information on and that's one of them. Can you post a copy of your tech sheet? Is it the pump that's humming??

I just had a WFW85HEFC Whirpool front loader with the same issue about 2 months ago, when I unplugged the washer for 10 mins and plugged it back in it would make the same noise. I replaced the water pressure sensor (water level control) and it worked. I am wondering if this is the same issue.....?
