Replaced the bearings and shaft on Bravo. When I turn it on, all light come on and here humming noise but will not go thru spin cycle. I am testing without water inlet hoses hooked up. What could the problem be?

Are you in the diagnostic test? Or just running a spin only cycle?

you need to test it with water , the humming noise is the water valves opening for water. also if u run a test w/o water you might get a ul/ol  code.
