Steffan, the wash motor seems to be the problem. The hum is happening when the wash motor should be running. The motor impeller could be frozen due to rust or something is stuck in the blades. Broken glass is usually the cause. Glass will cut seals and cause unnoticeable leaks that rust the motor shaft/bearing. Depending on your model, you might consider replacing the wash motor and sump to ensure you get new seals and impeller. Costs a little more but is usually easier to replace and you’ll have piece of mind knowing the seals are good. REMOVE POWER TO UNIT BEFORE DOING REPAIRS
