My washing machine is a previously owned appliance, probably around 4-5 years old. It has had problems not filling completely in the past, but though that's been fixed it is now not spinning during the wash cycle. I have no idea how to even begin working at this, so instead of breaking things trying to do it without help, I'm just coming straight for help. Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks

looks like c. 1997
Does the Motor run OR hum during Agitate ?
Does it Spin OK ?

.. not spinning during the wash cycle.

... during the Spin Cycle ?
and / or
during the Wash Cycle ?
Does the Motor "hum" or make any noise during these different cycles ?

It has a derpy looking agimutate lol. And it hums during both spin and wash cycles. It actually hums when water fills and drains too.

Sounds like maybe what you're describing isn't what we would consider a hum but more likely the motor running without any load on it.

If it is draining and you hear a hum but the basket never spins and you hear that same noise that you're calling a hum when it should be agitating after it fills with water but the agitator doesn't move then you have a broken drive coupler.

How do you fix a broken drive coupler or where can we find how to fix it? Is it even worth fixing or should I just look to get a new washer in regards to cost of the part(s) and labor?
