Last week I found the washer had stopped - full of clothes and water.  None of the cycles worked to spin or drain.


Lid switched checked out OK with Ohm meter.


Went under machine and maually turned the coupler between the motor and tranny.
Machine proceeded to work all week.


Today - same thing. Tub of water and clothes.
When I pull the start knob I hear the motor hum, it will fill but not advance.
Funny odor - motor?

All  help deeply appreciated.
thanks

Sounds like a jammed pump. Pull the cabinet off, unclip the pump from the motor and tie it back. Jumper out the lid switch harness and run the washer this way to see if it advances.
