My washer was leaking, so I replaced the pump. It failed to spin, so I replaced the coupler and the lid switch. It still hums when on the spin cycle. I took it apart, and the motor will only turn if I help it get started. If it is still moving, even slightly, when turned off, then on again quickly, it will continue to run without issues. If it comes to a complete stop, then it needs help to get going again. Do I need to replace the motor, or should I just give up and grab a cheap washer off Craigslist?

cant find that model number, but since you mention

, so I replaced the pump.
It failed to spin, so I replaced the coupler and the lid switch.
It still hums when on the spin cycle. I took it apart, and the motor will only turn if I help it get started. If it is still moving, even slightly, when turned off, then on again quickly, it will continue to run without issues.

I ASSUME that this is a direct drive washer. I would say that if you already have put a pump, coupler, lid switch, into it, then it des not cost that much more for a motor.

Some of these units have a cap, and some of them have trouble with a loose neutral wire too, there are a few things to check first.

It is a direct drive Kitchenaid washer. It does the same humming noise during agitate, and the motor only spins clockwise once I help it get started.

Sorry, I put an extra 0 in the model #- it is actually KAWS750LQ0. I am not able to check the wiring connections to the motor (I'm lucky to have the right screwdrivers to do the job). I have not tested the motor with the tub full of water while the motor is connected.

With the outer cabinet removed , do you see a ring of discoloration about 12 inches off of the floor on the inside of the cabinet?????? If there is, it appears it is a slipping clutch. The top seal on gearbox is leaking OR..... water is migrating down from a tub seal or seals at the spin tube/support tube...keep us posted

There are no rings of discoloration on the cabinet. Trips to the laundromat are adding up (5 kids)!

Check all of the wires that terminate at the motor plug connector for loose/burnt connections - some resistance/voltage measurements may be required at motor/capacitor etc.
