I replaced the couplers on the unit because one had broken. The unit now just hums in the spin cycle like the brake is stuck. I tried to move the agitator but will not move. What else could it be?

ANSWER Hello Will, You will want to make sure that the wire harness to the motor is fully seated. Also check to make sure that the coupling is fully seated on transmission. If this all checks ok then you will want to change out the clutch assembly. Also check drain pump to make sure that there is nothing clogged in pump and that pump is spinning properly. You can pull the pump off the motor and see if unit spins with pump off to test pump.
