After washing clothes, wouldn't drain or spin. Just makes timer buzzing noise. Check lid switch, pump, couplings and motor. Motor will spin when taken off of couplings and is plugged in. Couplings on gear will turn by hand and shaft turns in tub. What am I missing?

I have a sears/whirlpool direct drive washer approx 5yrs old. The washer reaches the rinse cycle after agitating fine and won't pump out the water. I bypassed the lid switch took cabinet off and heard the motor humming at this time and getting hot. I was able to get it to pump and spin by helping it along at the coupler. I took the pump off ( no obstructions) it spins freely, the coupler is good, I took the motor off and was able to spin the coupler attached to transmission. The motor windings test ok with an ohmmeter and the motor switch as well. All that I can think of is the capacitor. I removed it and measured voltage across it and got zero, that should have been 120v in my opinion, using an ohmmeter it reads a open circuit across the terminals. Am I looking at a bad capacitor here? Thank you in advance

Latest Questions

My wife did laundry last night and the washer worked fine. On the 2nd load the washer filled up fine. It would not agitate, spin or drain. When we adjusted the knob to try to have it spin and drain the water it just made a humming sound. I know the lid switch is in good order because I replaced it 2 months ago with the help of one of your videos. I'm guessing that the capacitor 8572717 has gone bad. How can I check to see if that is the problem? I would rather replace the capacitor than purchase a new machine. However, if the problem is due to a faulty motor or transmission I would probably just buy a new machine.

Timer works, motor hums,wont spin or agitate. Removed motor/tranny section. Could capacitor cause this problem? When unplugging motor and cap. one lug/wire of cap. was very loose and broke when I tried pulling wire off. Now I cant check motor section without cap hooked up. Please help.

Wash tub fills, motor hums then burning smell, took off pump and motor, transmission shaft spins easy, motor shaft spins easy, motor shaft will spin slowly when helped manually, but still hums and does not pick up speed. Capacitor, timer, lid switch, or motor? What should I order or what should I test?
