Thanks to your help, replaced belt because there was no agitation and it worked for 2 weeks.  Now, tub is full of water, won't empty, doesn't agitate, humming sound (motor) when on "spin" cycle with an odor.  Coupler was not replaced, but re-attached first time and doesn't look stripped.  Please help again.

Check to see if there is something in the water pump.  The motor cannot run if the pump cannot turn since it is attached to the clutch ontop of the motor.

Where is the water pump located?  (I'm a beginner).  Do you have a pic? Then, how do you determine if there is an obstruction?

Assuming this is an older style of washer, and from your post it is since you reattached the "coupler" that attaches to the clutch to the pump, the big white thing above the motor/clutch.  Remove the hoses and see if something is in the pump hoses or jammed in the impellers in the pump.  This probably has a 4 hose pump.  If you cannot see anything in the hoses, remove the pump and see if something is inside of either chamber.   P.S. you will need to get the water out of the washer first because this will all run out onto you and the floor when you remove the hoses.  You could also have a locked up transmission..
