Setup:
Marshall 15DFX combo
Proco Lifelines instrument cable
Tokai Love Rock

The amp hums like crazy whenever the frig or the dish washer is running. Hums even more when I touch any metal part of the guitar or the guitar end of the instrument cable.

What could be the problem? I know the guitar and the cable can act like antenna, picking up electric noises, but I didn't think it could be this bad.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Problem understood (but not solved). I tried rotating the cable end in the input jack and with some positions, the humming stopped. It's either the jack (more likely) or the cable.

Thanks for listening.

Y'know my wife hums bad when the radio is on.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
