Thank you for your reply! And you believe by replacing the motor that will not only start up the motor by itself but once it's up and running have it do what it needs to do to drain out the water so that it can go into spin mode. Seems like there's sort of two issues here:
1. Eliminating hum and giving motor enough startup power to start on its own
2. And draining the tub so that it can go into full spin mode.
