I was washing 2 bulky throw rugs.  The wash cycle went fine, but after filling with rinse water it stopped and began making a very loud buzzing sound.  What gives?  It won't do anything except buzz.   Thanks!

Sounds very like a broken coupler, caused by overloading with the rugs. Our illustrious leader has provided a step-by-step guide to rectifying this common problem here.

Or what is left of the rugs is stuck in the water pump...motor could not do anything at that point.

Thanks, Samurai, for the quick response.  I've ordered the coupler and a repair manual.  Wish me, uh, I mean my husband luck in fixing it! ;)

I agree with Pegi, check the inside of that pump first. A plugged pump will stop the motor( loud humming noise)

Keep the coupling and manual, you will need them.

If the coupler was broken the washer would still drain ok, does the washer drain???   If not need to pull the case and pull the pump to see what all is in there after getting the water out of the washer.

After closing the lid, the washer drained but continued making the loud noise.  It did not spin, so I pushed the knob in to stop it.  Is the coupler still likely to be the problem?  Thanks

Yes, sounds like the coupler is broken and your pump is ok.  The couplers are designed to break if the washer is overloaded.  ;)

Thanks guys for helping us locate the problem. Last night we replaced the coupler on the motor and the washer is working again. We read the manual, but found that the step by step directions in the June Newsletter made it very simple. It was so easy, only took about 40 minutes.  However, the coupler on the gearcase shaft wasn't broken, so we didn't replace that one.  What do you think?
