The timer seems to operate just fine. The unit fills with water but when it comes time for the wash to begin, it just hums for 30 seconds or so. It also hums when it is supposed to drain but does not. The wash arm spins freely. I suspect this is a motor issue. What can be checked and or done short of having to replace the motor. If it is the motor, could you reccommend a replacement model as replacing the motor on this old a unit is cost prohivitive. Thanks.

After removing the toe panel see if you can reach in and turn the blade between the pump and motor, something may have it jammed up. Have the power off when you do this.   If it is not jammed, or if it is and you cannot unjam this, probably will want to replace the unit.

Thanks a bunch. The blade appeared to turn freely, but when I gave the unit another try anyway, it took off running. It looks like I got at least some more life out of this appliance.
