Washer will not drain or spin. I have taken off the cabinet and removed the pump, no obstructions. The motor is just humming. Same symptoms with pump off. I can rotate the motor by hand and it will move the agitator, the drum will also spin when I rotate the disk above the gear box.

Check the motor run capacitor amd make sure wiring is connected. If it washes but won't spin most likely the timer. You did check the lid switch didn't you?

I checked the lid switch by placing the washer on spin cycle, and when the lid is open the motor does not hum, as it does when the lid is closed. 

Could you tell me where the motor capacitor is? I am not washer savy, I been looking at some diagrams here but did not see it. The wiring on the motor is connected.

I am considering pulling the motor free of the gearbox to see if it spins without it attached.

The capacitor is a black plactic housing about the size of a "D" battery. It is usually mounted on the motor, or on the inside of the back panel.

Does the motor run during agitataion? Dropping the motor to see if it will run isn't a bad idea, but if it washes but won't spin it's probably the timer which you can get here and if that's not the problem you can return it no questions asked.

does your model have a speed selector switch? If so, try running it in different settings.

I figured out that it was the motor. Thanks for all the help. I didn't get back here sooner because I went to Hawaii for a vacation and had to take care of the washer when I got back.
