My washer has for several years now had issues when entering the drain cycle. I have searched this and other forums and am posting here because I couldn't see my exact symptoms listed and this forum seemed to be the most helpful in responses. As my washer is entering the drain cycle, the water drains, but the basket doesn't spin. The motor is running, but not spinning freely. It just sounds like a motor trying to drive a stubborn belt (even though as I understand it there isn't a belt on my model). As soon as I lif the Lid, ther'e a *Pop* noise. I set the lid back down and the basket spins away as if nothing ever was wrong.
Also, When I am too lazy to head back to the laundry room, I notice that when the basket slows down from the drain to transition to the high-spin, it'll pop by itself and get into the final spin OK. I was hoping it would be a simple coupler issue, but agitation is great, and all the videos I saw listed did not address my particular set of conditions. Any Ideas would greatly appreciated.
