There were times when it should have been draining but it was just idling and buzzing.


Not a good sign. There is another seal that keeps water out of the motor. Good luck.
So you think its the drain pump that's still the suspect part? If that dial gets to the right place it's capable of draining but something keeps the washer from going through the cycles correctly.

If it's the pump buzzing then yes, bad pump.

I hope it's ok if I make a new topic for this. That headline about leaking isn't the problem anymore. Whatever caused the machine to not finish the cycles is. I probably caused the pump to leak myself when I took apart the pump. I guess I didn't put it back right. I appreciated the advice given on the o ring grease.
