The motor would hum but would not agitate or spin. Followed the PartSelect instructions on removing the cover. From other instructions I found out the start capacitor was bad. Very easy repair. Also replaced the clutch because the spin cycle would not begin without spinning it manually. FYI PartSelect had the lowest priced parts and were delivered next day with free shipping.
