Your drive coupling is broken.
Is this a hard fix? Nope. Very easy if you know the secret. To repair this machine you need to remove the cabinet off the base to getto the pump motor and drive coupling. REDNECK DIRECTIONS

Glad to hear you got it repaired.

The motor coupler must be one of the most common direct drive washer repairs.

I bet JW has replaced hundreds if not thousands of motor couplers over the years.  O0

Here is another motor coupler guide.
