Whilpool by Kirkland washer
« on: May 18, 2009, 10:31:29 PM »

The washer stopped working during the rinse cycle.  I changed a broken coupler and tried running it. All I heard was a buzzing like the motor was on but could not move.  It seemed locked up.  The agitator would not move.  I then took off the pump to check for an obstruction.  It seemed fine.  I replaced the pump and the agitator could now be manually moved.  When I plugged it in and tried it all I heard was a buzzing sound.  The motor works because before the coupler was replaced you could hear it trying to spin.  I'm not sure what direction to go next...Please help.
Thank you!

Probably a bad motor, did you re connect that motor capacitor? Take the motor out and run it by itself, if it works ok or hums it is probably bad or weak.
