Do the transmission and pump pulleys turn freely by hand?

Also, try removing the belt and running the washer to see if the motor will start and continue running or if it overheats and shuts down.

I knew that!  I was checking to see if Amy was paying attention.   :pint1:  :beatnik:  :gulp:  :beermug:  :hodji:

 

 

Amy,turn the drum by hand.  If it's very difficult to turn, the one of the rolling components may be bad or there may be something in the blower wheel.  Otherwise, it rotates without having to use lots of strength, then replace the motor.  Part number: AP4029141
