Got it all back together now, and more problems.  The motor goes "offline".  Almost seems like a loose wire or maybe the start Cap is bad.  The motor hums, but doesn't turn when this happens.  I verified that it is getting voltage.  I initially solved the problem by disconnecting all the motor wires including the capacitor and then reconnecting them.  Motor worked for the full agitate cycle.  Stopped again and hummed when it was supposed to spin.

Any ideas?  I'm so close, yet after all this labor on my part am now considering just buying a new unit.

I test the motor by pulling it off the coupler / pump and setting it on the floor.  It would hum and not spin.  Again, after reconnecting the wires, it would work ok.  I didn't pinch the wiring harness during the multiple take apart / put back together cycles.
