I adopted the washer in a rental unit. The tenant told me it made a series of loud noises and just stopped. My "go to" source is always Partselect, after entering the symptom(s) I noted the potential problems...it was then time to tear into the machine. First was the pump which was not broken or seized up, I then manually turned the shaft on the motor...it was spinning freely. After unclamping and removing the motor the problem was obvious...the coupler assembly had seen better days (it was broken in two), this was a very inexpensive and simple repair ($18 including shipping). I highly recommend viewing the you tube video on the parts page...it was very helpful. This is my 2nd appliance repair using Partselect, the 1st was just as easy although a bit more time consuming as I had to take an entire dryer apart to replace a broken wheel assembly deep inside the machine. I will be using Partselect everytime I feel I can handle the project. It saved me a bundle from having to call a repair person.
