Samsung Washing Machine humming -why?
« on: May 23, 2011, 06:56:33 PM »

Hi There,

I have a washing machine that hums (like a transformer type of hum) while in standby. It works fine though (after 2 pump replacements in 8 years). Just wondering if it could be a faulty cap in the main wiring near a transformer in the machine? ... too much noise?

Probably a really dorky question I know ..... but nothing else I have as far as appliances hums
Cheers,
