Hello, I have a Whirlpool washer (LSR7233EQ0) which is about 12 years old ( i think around 1997 is when I got it). Today it filled with water, agitated but will not drain. When I turn the knob to rinse so it can drain, i hear a "humming / buzzing" sound and nothing drains, etc.
I thought perhaps it was a one time thing, but I then set it back to agitate, and then checked in later, and the water is still in there and turning the knob to drain again, only makes the humming sound and nothing happens.
I researched some sites and drained the water from the back, then tilted it forward and found the pump and hoses and motor, etc. I removed the clamps and checked both the inlet and the outlet hoses. Both were clear and not obstructed. I put my finger in the pump and was able to turn the wheel inside the pump with my finger just fine. Nothing is obstructing the inside of the pump. I then unclamped the pump, and turned the motor by hand by turning the bolt looking thing that sticks out of the motor and into the pump. That turned freely as well.
Any thoughts as to what to try next? Thank you very much in advance.
