It fills and drains fine, but it won't agitate or spin.  It 'hums' like it is trying to agitate or spin, but that is all.  Any suggestions on what could be wrong and how to fix it?  Thanks!!  JHuffman

You also could have something in the pump:

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.

I guess anything is possible JW, but they did say "drains fine".
I would think that if something was so wrapped up in the pump that it would keep the washer from agitating or spinning it would also keep it from draining.


My money is still on the coupler.
