For Whirlpool Motor Assembly (Part Number: AP4024680)

When running a wash cycle, my washer will fill the tub, but once the tub has been filled, it will not start to agitate without an assist (makes the humming noise of a stuck motor before it is assisted). If I assist it by rotating the tub a little, it will then begin to agitate and run as it normally does. It requires another little assist (by rotating the tub) again at the beginning of the rinse cycle. The spin cycle operates normally without needing an assist. Is this due to a weak and dying motor?
