My washer will fill up but it isnt stopping. It'll fill until it overflows. Also, it won't agitate or spin or drain the water out. It just hums. When I set the cycle to spin and give the coupler a little push, it takes right off and acts normal. What could this be from?

Washer fills with water but will not agitate, spin or drain. It just buzzes regardless of whether or not the lid is shut or open. The lid switch tests out ok and the resistance in the motor and motor switch tests out seemingly fine. Also, tested the timer it has a resistance of ~0 ohms but the voltage is at about 100v. Not sure if this is the culprit?

Motor bad or transmission? The washer will load water just fine. When it gets to agitate cycle all I hear is a hum coming from control panel area. If I move it to drain/spin cycle with lid open no hum from control panel. But when I close the lid get same hum sound from control panel and no water drain or spin. So I assume lid switch is working Sounds like motor but not sure how to test it?

The washer spins very slow on the spin cycle. The clothes were soaking wet when the washer was done. Now it won't spin at all and you can hear a slight humming noise. I think it's the motor but I don't know.

Whirlpool washer would fill but no agitation or sound coming from the motor. Ohms from terminal to wires do not register.Wire to wire the register correctly. I'm guessing I need a new motor. I guess thats allowed after 22 years.

Hi, Occasionally the motor hums then cuts out when going into a cycle. If I "grab" the motor and jiggle it as to re-seat it, the washing machine will work again. The motor runs fine out of machine. It seems that something periodically binds causing the overheat safety to kick in. Is it possible for the 4 grommets and or the springs the hold the motor in place lose their stability over time causing the motor to move? I did replace the whole coupler assembly and the water pump thinking they might be causing the problem. Thanks!

The motor starts and does agitation and a few seconds later, approximately 20 seconds, I hear a click and it stops. I cannot restart it. I stop it and let it cool off a few minutes.Then I can start it in any setting and it will repeat the problem. When I put it on spin, after it cools off, it does the full cycle and it stops. I do smell overheating smell of a motor. The agitator turns freely left and right full cycle. Is there an overheating switch in the motor? The direct drive coupler I replaced new and did nor fix the problem. PLEASE HELP!!
